Slow Cooked Ribs

I used Sandra's food blog as my cooking Bible.  I'm pretty sure that any thing I'm looking to cook, she has a recipe for. Haha!  I was looking for something a little different than the usual for us because Shawn was going to be going out of town and I wanted to give him an amazing home cooked meal before he left since he'd be eating restaurant food for the next 3 days.  I decided for ribs.  I've never cooked ribs of any kind before.  I love to cook (and not to toot my own horn, but I'm pretty good at it) but I don't get out of my comfort zone often and I'm beginning to want to do that more.  You can find her recipe here.  These came out absolutely amazing and just fell right off the bone.

Slow Cooked Ribs


Spare ribs
can of sprite
garlic powder
bbq sauce


Cut the rack in half so it will fit in the crockpot.  Season both pieces on both sides with salt, pepper, garlic, and paprika and put inside crockpot.  Pour in the can of sprite and then cook on low for about 6 hours.
Add some BBQ sauce and continue to cook for another 2-3 hours.
Take out of the crockpot and place on an oven safe tray.  Pour BBQ sauce over the top.  I used a brush to spread it out.  Place the ribs under the broiler for about 3-4 minutes to caramelize the BBQ sauce a little bit.

Seriously, the whole family loved them... even my picky kids.  That's always a plus.
