  • 500 g ribs I used pork
  • 200 ml BBQ sauce
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp garlic puree
  • Splash Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper


  1. Remove the membrane from your ribs if you're using a full rack of ribs.

  2. Combine all of your ingredients apart from the ribs.

  3. Keep back about 1/3 of the liquid.

  4. Spread over all of the ribs ensuring even coverage the best you can.
  5. Place into your slow cooker.
  6. Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours. The longer you cook them the more tender they will be!
  7. Optional: Pour over the last 1/3 of the liquid at the end of cooking and grill for a couple of minutes. 

    Alternatively, use the sauce as a dipping sauce by warming it through before serving.
