I found this recipe for BBQ ribs made in the crockpot. I knew I had to try it! I changed the recipe to something I knew our family would love! We love the sweet but gotta have the tangy. Our favorite soy sauce always gives us that tang! We use Marca Pina Soy Sauce.
Proud to say it is made in the Philippines! It’s just the right amount of saltiness without being overbearing and very cheap to buy! A large bottle (seriously, the size of a wine bottle) only costs $1.95 at our local Asian store. These ribs were seriously fall of the bone goodness! Give this recipe a try. Nothing like good ol’ ribs in the middle of winter because these ribs are made in the slow cooker and finished off in the oven! Yummmmm!
Printable Directions: Tender BBQ Ribs
2-3 lbs Pork Spare Ribs
4 cups Pineapple Juice (reserve 1/2 cup for later in recipe)
1 and 1/2 cups Brown Sugar
3 Tablespoons Soy Sauce (we prefer Marca Pina Soy Sauce)
16 oz Bottle of Kraft Honey BBQ Sauce
Place plastic liner in crockpot. You can omit the liner and heavily spray the inside of the crockpot with non-stick cooking spray.
Cut ribs into individual servings of 2-3 ribs each place in slow cooker.
Mix 3.5 cups pineapple juice, soy sauce and brown sugar together.
Pour pineapple mix over the ribs.
Cover and cook on high for 8 hours. Cover a large cookie sheet in foil and turn oven onto broil. Ribs will be fork tender so carefully remove ribs and place on prepared cookie sheet. In a small bowl, mix together the remainder 1/2 cup pineapple juice and Kraft Honey BBQ sauce.
Using a brush, heavily brush the ribs with Kraft Honey BBQ sauce mix.
Flip over and brush other side heavily with BBQ sauce mix.
Place cookie sheet in oven and broil for 2-5 minutes on each side. Watch ribs carefully to ensure they do not burn.
The goal is to caramelize the BBQ sauce. Carefully remove from cookie sheet onto a serving plate.
