What a crock... crockpot ribs!

Why is it every time, or almost every time, I find a new recipe I only see what I want to see. I was sure this one said to add EVERYTHING at the same time. I didn't notice the barbecue sauce went in at almost the end. OOPS! But it didn't make a difference. These were good! I used a Maple Chipotle BBQ sauce. Now on to tomorrow, we're having a snow day, big blizzard coming into Long Island, all day long! I'm planning on cooking up a storm. but I know that probably won't happen. Ah, gotta love procrastination!

  1. Love, love, love ribs in the crockpot. So easy, so tender. These look yummy!

  2. Oh they look good! And I hope to cook tomorrow too..if we don't lose power..they are talking HIGH winds!

  3. Hubby just surprised me with a new crockpot (it was a good deal at BJ's). LOL I know what I am going to make! Thanks Carol, the ribs look wonderful.

  4. This looks like another "keeper" recipe from you! We love country style ribs and I know this will be a good one - it sure looks good in your photo!

  5. I think we got about 11 inches of snow yesterday so I hope it fizzles out by the time it reaches you! The recipe sounds wonderful and I'll bet putting the BBQ sauce in earlier made them taste even better.

  6. Carol, I always end up chuckling when reading your blog. That's a good thing. :) ... I love that you're able to go with the flow when it comes to cooking. The country ribs look tasty. Hope you don't get too much snow.

  7. That is a super idea! And a great recipe. Never thought of doing ribs in a crockpot!

  8. I love ribs cooked in a crock pot. They just fall off the bone and so delicious!

    We got over a foot of snow. I am so ready for Spring!

  9. Delicious!!!! The addition of the chipotle bbq sauce makes it even better.

  10. Looks delicious! I am trying to use my slow cooker more this winter!

  11. I have been looking for a slow cooker rib recipe that doesn't require me to turn on the stove.
