Ingredients

Instructions

  • 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.
