I have listened to every Food Network personality explain how to make ribs. Some say to boil ribs before grilling, while others protest that boiling the ribs is not the best method of action. All the conflicting information has made me a little wary of the whole world of ribs…. until now.
I found a recipe for crock pot ribs on Pinterest that sounded interesting and very easy. I modified the recipe from Team Hess just a bit, and this is the final result. I can tell you this: These ribs fell off the bone and were more delicious than any I have had in a restaurant.
From start to finish, this recipe should take approximately 8 hours.
3 lbs. pork ribs
1 c. water
1/4 cups cooking sherry
1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper to taste
1 tbsp Penzey’s Galena Street Rib & Chicken Rub
1 tsp garlic powder
3/4 cup barbecue sauce
Place ribs standing upright in crock pot.
Pour in sherry and water.
Sprinkle with Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, Galena Rub, and salt and pepper.
Pour barbecue sauce over ribs. Cook on low approximately 8 hours.
Serve with additional barbecue sauce for dipping.
