- 2 racks of baby back ribs
- 1 cup of BBQ sauce
- 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 cup of brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon of garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon of onion powder
- 1 teaspoon of smoked paprika
- Salt and pepper to taste
Start by preparing the ribs. Cut the racks into individual ribs and season them with salt and pepper. Place the ribs in the bottom of the crock pot. Mix together the BBQ sauce, apple cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, garlic powder, onion powder, and smoked paprika in a bowl. Pour the sauce over the ribs, making sure that each one is coated. Put the lid on the crock pot and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours, or until the ribs are tender.
Once the ribs are cooked, remove them from the crock pot and transfer them to a baking sheet. Preheat the oven to 375°F and brush the ribs with the remaining sauce from the crock pot. Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 15 minutes, or until the sauce is bubbly and caramelized. Serve the ribs with extra BBQ sauce and your favorite sides.
