Slow Cooker Baby Back Ribs

A former work colleague in Chicago loves to cook and is an excellent cook. This was her secret for she and the kids enjoying ribs on weeknights.

  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • dry rub (optional step before slow cooking)
  • 1 18 ounce bottle of barbeque sauce

  1. Season ribs with salt and pepper.
  2. Pour water into slow cooker. Layer the ribs into the slow cooker. Top the ribs with onion and garlic.
  3. Cook on High for 4 hours (or Low for 8 hours).
  4. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  5. Transfer ribs to a baking sheet. Discard onion and garlic. Coat ribs with barbeque sauce.
