Ingredients for slow cooker BBQ ribs

500g ribs (I used pork)

200ml BBQ sauce

1 tsp of brown sugar

1/2 tsp of garlic puree

Splash of Worcestershire sauce

1/2 tsp of cayenne pepper

Method for slow cooker BBQ ribs

If you’re using a full rack of ribs you want to start by removing the membrane if it has one. This is the white skin on the back of the ribs. It is usually best removed with a blunt cooking instrument, like a fork, and you should be able to pull it back almost like a piece of paper.

Mix all of your ingredients together. Keep back about 1/3 of the liquid.

Spread over all of the ribs ensuring even coverage the best you can.

Place into your slow cooker.

Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours. The longer you cook them the more tender they will be!

Optional: Pour over the last 1/3 of the liquid at the end of cooking and grill for a couple of minutes.
