Crockpot BBQ Ribs Recipe for Two

Crockpot BBQ Ribs for Two - Easy tender and juicy!

This is my favorite crockpot BBQ Ribs recipe and they are super easy to make. They come out soooo tender after slow cooking in the crockpot all day. The meat falls right off the bone and the rich barbecue flavor is perfect.  You can also adjust the heat by eliminating the cayenne pepper or adding more to your taste.

Serve these with this Potato Salad for Two or this Mashed Potato Casserole.

These are pork ribs but you can use any kind of ribs for this recipe, including beef.

In a small bowl mix together the paprika, brown sugar, cayenne pepper, onion powder, salt and pepper.  Rub the mixture all over both sides of the ribs.

Arrange the ribs by standing them up against the walls of the slow cooker, thicker side down and meat against the wall. Pour 1/4 c. of barbecue sauce over the ribs and cook on low for 7 – 8 hours. Click here for a 4 quart crockpot slow cooker.

Turn on the broiler in your oven.  Carefully, I use two pair of tongs as they are very tender and falling apart, remove the ribs from the slow cooker to a broiler pan with the bone side up. Brush the ribs with half of the remaining barbeque sauce and broil for about 4 minutes, 10 inches below the broiler.  Carefully turn them over and brush on the remaining barbeque sauce. Broil for 4 more minutes.
