Crock Pot Pork Ribs


The Super Bowl is basically here and I’m a little late in the game (HAHA get it?) with suggesting ideas for you to serve at your partay. Here I go anyway: RIBS. 

It’s funny how easy these are. All we did was rub the ribs with some rib rub, let them marinate for a bit (because we started them too late in the day) and tossed them into the crock pot at around 3:30am (don’t ask).

We literally took them out of the fridge, placed them on their sides into the slow cooker and turned it on to low for 10 hours. Then passed out in bed and woke up to a house smelling of ribs and excited that lunch was already prepared!



Since we are only two people, we have leftovers! Hurray! I hope everyone has a fun Sunday enjoying football (if you enjoy that part of the Super Bowl), commercials or whatever and the FOOD!

Crock Pot Pork Ribs


  • 2-3 lbs pork ribs
  • 1 packet of your favorite BBQ rub (we used this one from McCormick and it was great!)
  • Barbecue sauce (optional)


Remove ribs from package and cut them into smaller racks so they fit in the crock pot. Evenly distribute the rub all over the ribs. Place ribs into crock pot, on their side if possible, and cook on low for 8-10 hours.

Remove from crock pot and serve with barbecue sauce, if you like.

{Other Super Bowl ideas}


1. Nachos – This one is an obvious choice.

2. Soft Pretzels (vegan) – Make them into smaller bites if you need to feed a small crowd.

3. Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas (with sriracha) – A pretty basic quesadilla with buffalo chicken but I love the addition of Sriracha. 

4. Buffalo Chicken Dip – Well…yeah!

5. Panko Fried Pickle Chips – This one is for my sister-in-law. She loves them and I think you will too! The panko makes them extra crunchy!

6. Baked Coconut Shrimp – I could probably eat 143 of these. Light, crunchy, delicious and easy. What else can I say?
