Slow Cooker BBQ Beer Pork Ribs

Here is a super easy way to make BBQ Pork Ribs without a BBQ or Smoker, and using only 5 ingredients.


Baby Back Pork Ribs (I had 3 Slabs)

2 Cups of your favorite BBQ Sauce

2 12 ounce Beers of your choice


Black Pepper

First remove the membrane on the back side of the Ribs. Cut Ribs into 3-5 Rib sections to ensure you will be able to fit them in your Slow Cooker. Salt and Pepper the Ribs on both sides and allow the Ribs to sit out at room temperature for 15-20 minutes.

Pour one Beer into Slow Cooker. Place Rib sections inside. Pour second Beer over the top of the Ribs. Cook on Low for 5 hours or on High for 3 hours.

Half way through cooking remove Ribs and place the Ribs that were on top on the bottom and on the Bottom on Top. Continue to cook.

Once the Ribs appear tender remove them and drain the Beer. Coat both sides of the Ribs with BBQ Sauce and place back inside Slow Cooker. Pour some more BBQ Sauce on top of Ribs. Cook on High for another hour, or until they are tender.

Remove Ribs very carefully from Slow Cooker. They will be very tender and will fall apart very easily if you are not careful. Place Racks on oven rack and Broil in your over on High (450-500 degrees) for a few minutes to allow the BBQ Sauce to caramelize.

Watch my video below to see me make these, step by step. Very easy to make, even if you have no BBQ or Smoker.
