Slow Cooker Honey BBQ Ribs

Who needs another easy slow cooker recipe? I DO! 
How about one with less than five ingredients? I DO!

With school and sports in full swing, it’s that time of year where we are all scrambling for easy go to meals. Now that the grill is covered in wet leaves and the sun is missing, an obvious vessel to answer that prayer is the slow cooker. Some people call it a crock-pot (that’s a brand of a slow cooker). Whatever yours is, it’s time to dust it off.

Country style ribs are usually pretty fatty, but when you cook it for a long time in the slow cooker you can scoop the layer of fat off the top before making the sauce. And the sauce is so simple! You can really use any kind of BBQ sauce, but I prefer Sweet Baby Rays. Serve it over rice or noodles with a veggie or salad on the side.


3 lbs Country style boneless ribs
1 bottle of BBQ sauce
1 tablespoon corn starch
3 tablespoons honey


Trim any large amounts of fat you can off the ribs.

Place ribs and BBQ sauce in the slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours.

About 15-30 minutes before serving, carefully scoop the layer of fat off the top using a spoon. Remove the ribs to a cutting board.

Whisk the corn starch with about two tablespoons of water. Whisk the cornstarch and honey into the sauce left in the slow cooker.

Lightly chop the ribs into large pieces and place back in the slow cooker. Mix. Cook a little longer and serve over rice or noodles. 

What's better than making an easy recipe? Making an easy recipe that the kids love!
