How Long to Cook Ribs in Crock Pot


I love cooking ribs in my crock pot. They’re so simple and easy to make – even if you’re not a great cook. If you’ve never cooked them before, don’t worry! This guide will show you how to get your ribs tender and delicious with little effort on your part!

Preheat the crock pot on high and brown the ribs.

The first step to cooking ribs in a crock pot is to brown them. This is an important step, so don’t skip it! If you do, the ribs will be very tough and chewy because they haven’t been seared in any way. You can use either a skillet or grill to brown your meat before adding it to the slow cooker; just make sure that whatever tool you use isn’t non-stick (if so, there’s no need for oil).

Season them with your favorite spices or seasonings.


You can season the ribs with your favorite spices or seasonings. Add salt, pepper and other spices to taste. For a simple rub, mix two tablespoons of brown sugar with two teaspoons of chili powder and one tablespoon of garlic powder.

If you want to add more flavor to your dish, try using a barbecue sauce instead of just plain water. You can also add hot sauce for an extra kick! Lastly (but most importantly), sprinkle some garlic powder or onion powder on top for that extra zest in each bite!

Add 1 tablespoon of canola oil to the bottom of your crock pot.

Add 1 tablespoon of canola oil to the bottom of your crock pot. Canola oil is a healthy choice for cooking, and it helps keep the ribs from sticking to the bottom of your slow cooker.

The amount of oil you use will depend on how big your slow cooker is–the more surface area there is, the less you’ll need in terms of volume. If you’re using a small 6-quart model, just one tablespoon should do it; if yours is larger (like my 7-1/2 quart), double that amount or more!

Put the ribs in and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8-10 hours.

Now that you know how long to cook ribs in the slow cooker, let’s talk about how to check their doneness.

To do this, you’ll need a meat thermometer. Place it into one of the thickest parts of your ribs–it should be inserted at least 1 inch into the meat but not touching bone or fat–and leave it there for 10 seconds before reading. If you’re cooking on low (8-10 hours), look for an internal temperature between 190 F and 200 F; if you’re cooking on high (4 hours), look for an internal temperature between 170 F and 180 F.

Remove from heat and serve while hot.

Remove from heat and serve while hot. The ribs are best served with your favorite side dish, such as mashed potatoes or corn on the cob. If you’re feeling adventurous and want to try something new, we recommend serving them with broccoli!

The perfect way to cook ribs in a crock pot

Ribs are a great meal to make in the slow cooker. They’re tender and flavorful, and they can be cooked either on their own or as part of another dish. Here are some tips for getting perfect ribs every time:

  • How long to cook ribs in a crock pot? It depends on which type of ribs you buy and how well-done you like them! For example, baby back ribs usually take 6 hours at high heat; spareribs require 8 hours at low heat with extra liquid added (such as water or beer). For best results, start with an internal temperature between 160 degrees F and 170 degrees F before serving to make sure they’re done all the way through without drying out too much.* What do I need before I start cooking my meat? As always when cooking meat in any kind of oven or stovetop appliance (including microwaves), make sure it’s thawed first so that it doesn’t spoil while being cooked.* How should I prepare my meat before putting it into my slow cooker? After removing any packaging from fresh cuts such as beef roasts or pork chops–and making sure there isn’t anything else inside that needs checking first!–make sure there aren’t any bones sticking out anywhere because these could puncture something later down line like when trying lift out again once cooked through completely.* How long does it take for frozen food items like chicken breasts etcetera thawing out properly? The general rule here would be about 2 hours per pound but keep checking regularly since every situation may differ slightly depending on factors such as room temperature levels outside during winter months (which affects how quickly ice melts) versus summer months where humidity levels increase due higher temperatures outside causing us humans sweat more easily thus slowing down our bodies’ ability process things quickly enough


The best part of slow cooking ribs is that you don’t have to worry about them burning or drying out. They’ll come out perfectly juicy and tender every time!
