Fall off the Bone Crockpot Ribs

Okay, okay, hear me out. I know ribs are traditionally a meal that's eaten at the peak of summer. Ribs always remind me of being by the lake, sunburned, barefoot, and sitting on a towel that's still wet because you're still in your swimsuit. But on the other hand, ribs are one of my favorite comfort foods. If there are ribs on a menu I will most definitely be ordering it. When Daniel and I order from Portillos- who is famous for their Italian Beef Sandwiches, hot dogs, chocolate cake, and salads- I always order the ribs. There's something about eating with your hands that really gets to me. The combo of insanely juicy ribs with a crisp, barky outside slathered in tangy barbecue sauce.

They always say nothing good comes quickly... right? Or is it nothing good comes easy.... whatever. The greatest part of this is THIS DOES COME EASILY. It's a matter of seasoning, tossing into the crockpot for 6 hours then throwing it under the broiler for 10 minutes.


Let's talk about ingredients.

  • Spices (salt, pepp, garlic powder, paprika, cayenne)

  • Ribs

  • BBQ Sauce (I used G Hughes Sugar-Free BBQ sauce)

Periodt. The end.

Look, I am no pitmaster, but every time I have made these ribs they've been incredible. I spice them the night before to let the flavor absorb a bit then the day of, all I have to do is take them out of the fridge, pop them in the crock, set to low, then go watch reruns of The Office for 6 hours.
