Slowcooker BBQ Ribs & Hashbrowns

I don’t make ribs often, they are pretty expensive for a student/poor person budget… but when I do, They HAVE to be Slowcooker BBQ Ribs! It is the most simple recipe I have ever made (easier than KD), and are SO so SO, fall off the bone, delicious. I can be stuffed to the point of exploding but I will finish every little bit of these ribs, no question.

So, how do you make these heavenly ribs?

Slow Cooker BBQ Ribs

Prep Time: 10 mins | Cook Time: 6 hrs | Servings: 2 servings | Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients:

  • 1 large Sweet Onion, sliced
  • 6 country-style pork ribs or beef short ribs
  • 2 (10ounce) bottles of barbeque sauce

Directions:

1. Lay the onion slices on the bottom of the slow cooker. Place the ribs on top of the onions. Pour the bottles of bbq sauce on top of the ribs and onions.

2. Cover and cook on low setting for 6 hours or more. The longer you cook them, the more tender and falling apart they will be.

I loved each and every part of this meal… In fact, having to think about this meal makes me want to make it RIGHT NOW! But, I have something new and exciting planned for tonight. Feta and Bacon stuffed Chicken with a Watermelon Feta salad… oh yeah baby.

 

But, with the AMAZING ribs, I made Hashbrowns and Glazed carrots… The Hashbrowns were super easy and yummy, and the carrots were just as easy and gace the meal just a little bit of sweetness.

Make this meal. ASAP. When you are making your mealplan and grocery list for the week, make sure these three dishes are on there, especially with it getting colder out (or is that just Northern Ontario??)

Now that I’m back at school for the year (Third year of University… Almost finished… almost!!), this meal will be FANTASTIC for those days where both Chris and I leave the ouse first thing in the morning and don’t get home until dinnertime and are STARVING. So, anyone in a similar situation, you’re welcome.

Enjoy 🙂
