Back back ribs are the perfect summer dish. This rub, complete with an array of flavorful spices, is the perfect complement for a crockpot rib recipe that will leave your family and friends begging for more. The slow-cook method helps all of the spices meld together, creating a rich dish that's great for parties or, because of it's simplicity, a fulfilling meal at the end of a long work day.
kc guest December 15, 2013 COMMENT: the meat was tender, but the flavor was ok. concerned about the lack of no liquid, added 1/4 c. beer. also did not have white pepper. just missed the smoky flavor that ribs should have. will try again, but with different seasonings.

This was a fantastic recipe, if I could I would add a sixth star, definitely a keeper. I have done this recipe twice now and the only thing I can recommend is that you cut the rack of ribs into groups of 4 to 5 ribs then stack them with meat end up to form a tee pee in the center of the pot, this way they will support each other and not fall into the fat that collects in the bottom of the pot, also I suggest that you brush some BBQ sauce on the ribs before putting them in the crock pot to provide additional moisture.
Guest Foodie October 12, 2013 REVIEW:
Super easy and works perfect every time! I really doubted this recipe but it actually turns the ribs slightly crispy outside and SUPER tender inside. I lightly brush them with BBQ sauce but only because we like BBQ sauce, not because it needs it.

OMG... 5 stars to be exact.... delicious.... next time I will omit the cumin, it was too much.....wonderful recipe... tender, tender ribs...

Everyone is exactly right, these will be the best ribs you've ever had. Hands down. No competition. Forget your favorite bbq restaurants you don't need them with this recipe.
Guest Foodie July 29, 2013 REVIEW:
All the reviews made me want to try this recipe and I'm glad I did. It's as excellent as everyone says!

"The best ribs I've ever had in my life." - That's what my girlfriend told me after I cooked these for her. Holy cow, I will continue using this recipe. They were the best ribs I've ever had in my life too. The ribs were done after about 8 hours cooked on low, and then I covered them in BBQ sauce and put them in a 375 degree oven for about 15 minute. WOW!

This is the best recipe ever, fast, easy and delicious!!! I've even used regular pork ribs and they are just as good!! A must try!
cville May 26, 2013 REVIEW:
Made these today, just as everyone said, fall off the bones, juicy, tender. I did not even use any bbq sauce. I put them on slow cook, and they were ready in just under 7 hours. I put a couple of baking potates between the racks and that helped hold them up. Dinner is served... with some coleslaw made earlier!
Tara April 28, 2013 COMMENT: Awesome and easy recipe for flavorful, fall-off-the-bone ribs! My husband was skeptical when I said I was making ribs in the crock pot, but he thought they were fantastic.

THE BEST IN DA WORLD!!!
Guest Foodie February 23, 2013 COMMENT: I looked at all these comments and was so excited to try this recipe. I cooked them on low for 8 hours when I was at work. I came home to burnt dried out ribs. No liquid at all at the bottom of the pot. It was like chewing jerky. I wonder why I had a different experience?
CDKitchen Staff Reply: Unfortunately, not all crock pots heat the same anymore. Some brands cook at far too high a heat and are notorious for drying foods out and overcooking things. Also, make sure that your crock pot lid fits snugly. The unit needs to build up steam inside and if the lid isn't fitting properly then the vital moisture will escape.

Worked great in 3.5 hours on high. Rub was very good.

All the reviews were right on!! These were so easy and awesome! I will definitely be making these again soon.
Chita64 October 15, 2012 REVIEW:
These ribs were simply the BEST! I don't know why I ever hesitated to cook them in my slow cooker! The cut I used was a
3-lb Pork Loin Baby Back Ribs. The recipe is super easy and they came out so tasty, fall off the bone GOOD! Try them with Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce. My husband said that I could make these for dinner anytime that I wanted!
Shera October 4, 2012 REVIEW:
I'm new at crock pot cooking and worried that there wasn't a liquid involved and that I had to stack the ribs in the pot. As I watched through the top the ribs looked like they were turning to leather. SO WRONG, they were excellent and tender and juicy. Four of us ate 3 lbs and would have eaten more if I had cooked it! Great recipe, it's a keeper for impressing guests. Thanks so much.
rickey September 18, 2012 REVIEW:
These ribs were great. What I did is took them out of the crock pot about an hour early put them in a baking dish meat side up poured the drippings from the crock all over the top then smothered them in Sweet Babys Barbaque Sauce covered with foil and baked for about an hour at 200 degrees. Wow were they good. I know with the drippings it's a Heart Attack but if youre going to eat Ribs you might as well do it right
Coolcooker12 June 30, 2012 REVIEW:
Absolutely terrible! Terrible. Because I have no more delicious ribs left to eat and I do not know what to do lol. Love the receipe it was awesome. Ribs were fantastic and flavorful thanks for the great receipe.

tony February 6, 2010 COMMENT: As far as serving size and ingredients are concerned, I have 5 lbs of baby back ribs., so what serving size do I enter in the calculator in order to add the correct ingredient amounts? Looking to cook these for Superbowl tomorrow. Thank you
Newbie September 19, 2009 COMMENT: I am cooking the ribs for the first time tonight. I have a question about the way the ribs should be facing...should the meat side be touching the crock pot or facing straight up??? Or does it really matter? I can't wait to try them. My fiance is nervous because ribs are the man's job...lol.
Patty December 14, 2008 REVIEW:
Absolutely the best and easiest ribs that I have ever made. Oh so good!
Grumpy John March 29, 2008 REVIEW:
This recipe is FANTASTIC. It is very unique, never tasted ribs like this before and they taste great! To answer someones question, no, no liquid needs to be added. You actually end up with a lot of fat juice in crock pot after cooking. I thought I might need to put on Grill at end to "char" the outside of meat, but slow cook and touching the sides of Crock Pot does the job. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Cooking for friends tonight!! Just need to see if I can do this with Frozen Ribs (from Costco).

jtchristian May 20, 2007 REVIEW:
I give this a 5 for ease of preparation and for wonderful, tender, fall-off-bone ribs! My husband raved and raved! I would probably add some onion or garlic powder to the rub, but otherwise, they are very tasty! I love that you can do them in the crockpot which is a mainstay for my kitchen! Thanks for a new favorite!
King of Kentville January 21, 2007 REVIEW:
Amazing dish!!! Easy to prepare with excellent results.
confused too October 25, 2006 COMMENT: I noticed someone already posted the same question I had, do you add liquid to the crockpot? It seems as if the ribs would completely dry out if not. I love my crockpot, but have never cooked ribs in it, and would love to. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
CDKitchen Staff Reply: You shouldn't need to add any additional liquid. A crock pot with a tight fitting lid (don't use a plastic lid!) will keep steam inside while it cooks and will make the liquid the ribs need. If you cook it on "high" you might want to keep your eye on it (at least the first time you make it), but cooking on low shouldn't cook off the liquid.
sandy October 23, 2006 REVIEW:
This recipe is the best crock pot recipe I've had. The family enjoyed it a lot.
confused May 26, 2006 COMMENT: do you cook the ribs dry or do you add a liquid to the crock pot before cooking?
Rell May 11, 2006 REVIEW:
My family absolutely enjoyed this!! The first time I cooked it was for Thanksgiving dinner 2005. I now cook it when I want a "finger-licking" good Sunday dinner. It is hard to wake up Sunday morning to the smell of the ribs and not want to eat them then.
