I will confess that I have never made ribs before. Even though they are my most favorite barbecued meat. When I saw a full rack of ribs for under $3, I knew ribs were going to be attempted at my house. Even though we don't have a barbecue grill. My mom has always boiled them for a few hours, then finished them off in the oven or on the grill. I had a busy day, so tending to a boiling pot for a few hours wasn't going to work. I adapted a recipe from All Recipes, it was really quite easy. And the ribs couldn't have tasted any better. I used bottle barbecue sauce because I am tired of C whining that the homemade kinds makes the house smell too vinegary. I will definitely be buying ribs again, though I am hoping for more great sales on them this summer.
1 full rack of ribs, broken down to fit into the crockpot
½ cup water
½ onion, peeled and sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
your favorite barbecue sauce
Season the ribs generously with salt and pepper. Pour the water into the crockpot, layer the ribs on top. Layer the onions and garlic on top of the ribs. Cook on low for 8 to 10 hours. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Transfer the ribs to a baking sheet, discarding the onion slices. Brush the barbecue sauce all over the ribs to coat. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes, serve.
