Jackie’s Best Pig Ribs for the Slow Cooker

Shared by Jackie Baltrun 


Serves two to three people


1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon paprika 

1 teaspoon black pepper 

1 teaspoon garlic powder 

1 teaspoon thyme

1 teaspoon onion powder 

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon cayenne 

1 rack meaty baby back pork ribs; cut into 4-rib sections

1/4 cup ketchup

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce or A1 Sauce

1 tablespoon soy sauce

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 teaspoon sea salt (optional)


The meat: Coat slow cooker with cooking spray. Combine first seven spice ingredients; rub into all sides of the rib sections. Place ribs in slow cooker, positioned vertically with boniest edge down, leaning each section against the next. Cover and cook 6 to 8 hours on low or 3 - 3 1/2 on high for ribs that are tender and falling off the bone. Adjust time down if firmer ribs are desired. Discard liquid now if too much has accumulated.


The sauce: After ribs are almost completely cooked, combine ketchup, brown sugar, Worcestershire, sea salt, and soy sauce; mix well. Coat ribs with sauce and cook until glazed or 30 minutes on high.




Thanks Jackie - can't wait to try your ribs!!
