All this cold weather has me dreaming of sitting poolside with a Mojito and the smell of the BBQ going…
Well in the middle of January this was as close as I could get. But don’t worry - it was delicious!!
Plus, they are made in the crock pot which always makes things taste better in my book! :)
Add between 1/4 - 1/2 cup of water to your crock pot. Then get your rib rub ready. You can buy a rub or make your own.
This is the Kansas City Rib Rub.
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup paprika
- 1 tablespoon black pepper
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1 tablespoon garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon cayenne
Combine all of the ingredients and transfer to an air tight container. It will store for up to 6 months. We use this rub on chicken too!
After you get your rib rub generously rub on both sides. Put the ribs in the crock pot with the meaty side against the wall of the crock pot. Cook on low for about 6 hours. Take them out - easy! They will be very tender.
DO NOT SKIP THIS NEXT STEP. Brush them with BBQ sauce and put them in broiler for a few minutes. Then you can re-apply a light coat (or a lot if your like some people in our house) after you take them out.
So good - so easy!!
