Crock Pot recipes are the best kind of recipes, and these Baby Back Ribs are super simple to make. You won’t make a mess in the kitchen, but when it comes to chowing down … well, that’s a different story!
Slow Cooker Ribs are roasted in a sweet and savory sauce, then cooked for several hours. The result is fall-off-the-bone meat that’s tender, juicy, and incredibly delicious.
Blackberry Barbecue Sauce takes Crock Pot Ribs to the next level!
The homemade sauce is a blend of molasses, blackberries, garlic, ketchup, balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, a dash of hot sauce, salt, and pepper.
How To Make Crock Pot Ribs:
Remove the membrane from the back of your ribs and cut the ribs down so they fit in your crockpot. I recommend using a 6-quart or larger crockpot!
Add the sauce ingredients together in a food processor and process until smooth, then brush it all over the baby back ribs in the crock pot — that’s all! But reserve some of that delicious sauce for the end!
Let the ribs cook in the crockpot and once the ribs are done cooking you’ll want to place them on a baking sheet and brush the remaining sauce over the top and broil them for a few minutes.
This gives the ribs that mouthwatering and tasty finish!

Crock Pot Ribs
- Remove the membrane (shiny/white tissue) from the back of the ribs by flipping the ribs so they are meat-side down and work your fingers under the membrane and peel it off.
- Cut your ribs down so they fit comfortably in your crockpot and you can put the lid on. I recommend a 6-quart crockpot or larger.
- Add the remaining ingredients into a food processor or blender and process until a sauce forms. You may leave the seeds in the sauce or run the sauce through a sieve to remove them - totally up to you.
- Place the ribs in the crockpot, you can layer then, but brush a thin layer of the sauce over the top of each layer of ribs. DO NOT dip the brush directly into the sauce after brushing the ribs, just pour a little on the ribs and brush it over the surface. You want to reserve about half of the sauce for later.
- Cook on high for 4 to 5 hours or low for 8 hours.
- Once the ribs are done in the crockpot. Transfer them to a parchment lined baking sheet and brush the remaining sauce over the tops of them and broil for 3 to 5 minutes. Remove and enjoy.
