No one ever believes how little effort it takes to make these tender, juicy ribs. The flavor of the lightly sweet and tangy sauce penetrates through the meat as the ribs simmer in the slow cooker.

My husband, Randy, and I love barbecued ribs, but with our busy schedules, we rarely have time to fire up the grill. We simply let the slow cooker do the work for us. By the time we get home from a crazy day at work, the ribs are tender, saucy and ready to devour. —Kandy Bingham, Green River, Wyoming
My husband adores this dish, and I love how good it makes the house smell! The mild, tangy, salty-sweet sauce with fresh ginger and garlic is delicious with rice or noodles. —Julie Ko, Rogers, Arkansas
If you're looking for a change from typical barbecue ribs, you'll enjoy this recipe my mom always prepared on birthdays and special occasions. The tender ribs have a slight sweet-and-sour taste that my family loves. I usually serve them with garlic mashed potatoes and a salad or coleslaw.

I'll have to admit these ribs are finger-lickin' good and fall-off-the-bone tender! I've made them for a lot of my buddies—including my preacher—and some have even suggested that I try bottling my sauce and selling it to the public! —Allan Stackhouse Jr., Jennings, Louisiana
The slightly sweet caramel-colored sauce adds a burst of flavor when drizzled over these tender ribs sent in from Lil Neuls of Caballo, New Mexico. Using boneless ribs adds to the 5 ingredient ease of this recipe.
