Enjoy a meal of succulent spareribs drenched in barbecue sauce for dinner tonight. This simple slow cooker recipe has only five ingredients and tasty ribs could not be easier to make
For the barbecue sauce, the easiest option is to select your favorite from the store. Choose a spicy sauce to give the ribs a kick or keep it nice and mild with a more subtle sauce. This is also an excellent opportunity to make your own barbecue sauce. It's surprisingly easy.
Serve these pork spareribs with a potato or pasta salad alongside coleslaw and beans to complete the meal.
- 4 pounds pork spareribs (cut into serving-size pieces)
- Salt (to taste)
- Freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
- 1 medium onion
- 1 (16-ounce) bottle barbecue sauce
Gather the ingredients.
Sprinkle ribs with salt and pepper; place on rack in a broiler pan or roasting pan.
Broil ribs for 20 to 25 minutes.
Meanwhile, peel the onions and slice thinly.
Place the ribs in a slow cooker along with sliced onion and barbecue sauce.
Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours.
Glass Bakeware Warning
Do not use glass bakeware when broiling or when a recipe calls to add liquid to a hot pan, as glass may explode. Even if it states oven-safe or heat resistant, tempered glass products can, and do, break occasionally.
It's All About the Sauce
Customize your spareribs with a special homemade barbecue sauce. Most barbecue sauce recipes have a ketchup, vinegar, and molasses base. Many include brown sugar and Worcestershire sauce as well. Essentially, if you have a well-stocked kitchen, you can make barbecue sauce. Whiskey also makes a great barbecue sauce.
