I’ve never made ribs before in my life. I always felt like it was kind of the purview of “the pitmasters”. These were so easy and so incredibly good. I was nervous about not putting any liquid in the slow cooker, so I added 2 T apple cider vinegar and 4 T water. Turns out I actually didn’t need it, but I reduced the drippings by about half and thickened it with a tiny cornstarch slurry. Put the gravy over mashed cauliflower. Omg. So, so good. Only thing I will change next time is to cut the sauce by half. It made way more than I needed to baste the ribs while they were roasting.

I give 2 stars for trying. To improve, 1st throw away the mustard sauce and then try this: Get a 3 or 4" deep 10" x 14" stainless roasting pas with a wire rack. Add 2 cups Apple Juice

I did these in my smoker instead of the crockpot and they were great. After finishing the smoking I put the sauce on it cooked in the oven.

Made this tonight - it was a huge hit with hubby & daughter. A little too much mustard for my taste but rest of family loved it!!

Great rub! Smelled delicious while cooking, disappeared fast from our plates.Smoked paprika adds an amazing flavor that regular paprika lacks.I also found that they cooked quickly. Real easy recipe.

These turned out great. I only cooked them for 4 hours in the slow cooker and they were done. Baking them in the oven with the sauce made them very flavorful. Next time I think I will try finishing them on the grill with the sauce. Thanks for the recipe.

I hadn't seen anything like this before. We really enjoyed the sauce. The cooking methkd was perfect, the slow cooking left the ribs tender and baking the sauce in left them flavorful.
