What Do You Need To Make Crock Pot St Louis Style Ribs
Well you need a crock pot to make crock pot BBQ rib! I use the original crock pot brand and I love using the liners for easy clean up; however, you do not have to. Make sure you grab a meat thermometer too, that can stay in a closed crock. I think food like ribs, and many types of pork, are perfect in the crock pot but that is up to you!
Then you will just need a couple other ingredients.
- Ribs, St Louis Style or another
- Spices, salt and pepper
- Brown sugar replacement but you can use regular brown sugar
- BBQ Sauce
- Honey mustard but if you do not want it sweet, use regular mustard
You can adjust the spices to your liking as well but I like my ribs a bit sweeter, hence all the brown sugar and honey mustard. If you are looking for a true savory dish, skip the sugar and then switch the honey mustard to regular mustard. If you like it spicier and more peppery, add ground red pepper and black pepper. Alternatively, you can use regular brown sugar if you do not like sugar replacements.
How To Make Crock Pot St Louis Style Ribs
It is quite simple to make, and pretty quick in the crock pot but first, make sure to remove the membrane from the back, mine came without one. You can slide your fingers underneath and it will come right off.
Combine all of the seasonings together and press into both sides of the ribs, this will create the dry rub. Place into the crock pot. I use a crock pot liner for easy cleanup but you do not have to.
Pour all the sauces over the ribs, including some extra brown sugar, and swirl them together. Alternatively, you can stir them together in a small bowl and pour on top.
Place the lid on the crock pot and cook for about four hours on low. You may need to cook them a little longer, depending on how thick your ribs are but they should be done within five hours if more time is needed. The more ribs you add, the longer it will need to cook. There you have it! Tender and juicy, fall off the bone, bbq ribs.
