I cut down the vinegar a little as my kids don't like barbecue sauce that is too tangy. I probably used about 1/3 cup instead of 1/2. This was delicious. We all loved it. There were no leftovers. I might try this with a pork roast or tenderloin too as the flavor was really nice.

Love ribs but my youngest won't eat meat with bones so this recipe is perfect. We all enjoy it.

I used manwich in place of the tomato paste/brown sugar the taste is similar and it came out wonderful!

Moving day is a hassle and usually means fast food places....but not with this! Stuck it in the crock...used bottled BBQ sauce with a few minor additions..PERRFECTION! Baked potatoes in microwave and first dinner in new home was a meal to remember! (and NO work at all!) Only thing giving away the simplicity was the paper plates! (and can be eaten with plastic forks!..no knives needed!)

did a little jig!
Finally..approval from my 15yr old! This is a great simple recipe....kid approved. I had a small package of the ribs, so i adjusted the amounts. I used all the ingredients listed. I didn't have prepared mustard so I used regular kind. I added a pinch of chili powder. I wanted to bake them, so I browned them first seasoning them with all purpose seasoning. Baked at 350 -1 & 1/2hr. YUM! Remember though: I had small package of ribs to work with..

Two thumbs up! Simple, tasty, quick to prepare. Uses ingredients even I have in the house. Appeals to the meat lover in me. Complete the meal with with store bought mashed potatoes and ice cream for desert, maybe a salad, too. Perfect meal...

I am surprised this doesn't have more positive comments! I made this and left out the mustard. Also, I was running short on time and so I only have 5 hours to cook them. I did the first hour on high and then did the last4 hours on low. They turned out AMAZING. I can only imagine if I had set it to low and allowed it to cook for the full 8 hours how much better they'd be. I'll find out soon since I'm making them tomorrow again. I liked that the sauce wasn't all gooey and gross. I don't like a lot of bbq so it was perfect for me and I just spooned extra sauce onto my husbands since he does. I'm going to try this with other meats as well like those beef chunks that are packaged for stews. SOOOO GOOD AND CHEAP.

I used a modified version of the recipe due to not having all ingredients. Instead of brown sugar, I used white sugar, and instead of a 6 oz. can of tomato paste, I used a 16 oz. can of tomato sauce. Also, put the ingredients in a crockpot on high for 2 hours and on low for 4 hours instead of on low for 8 hours. I'm not sure how my results would compare with following the exact recipe, but the ribs came out tender, juicy, and tasty! My companion and I both very much enjoyed them. We also ate some whole kernel corn with butter on the side instead of rice.

This has been cooking in my crockpot all day...what a smell! The ribs just fall apart and everyone loves it! Great recipe. Will definetly make this again!

The prep time info states 5 hours. But the recipe says 8 hours on low setting. Which is the correct time?
CDKitchen Note: No, this recipe is categorized as taking > 5 hours (that symbol means "greater than"). Always follow the full time called for in the recipe.
