Expert Tips

  • Serve a big bowl of creamy coleslaw, baked chili beans and cornbread muffins alongside the ribs. Don’t forget big cloth napkins.
  • Can’t find pork loin ribs? Baby-back or spare ribs are fine options, though the loin ribs tend to be a little meatier.
  • To add some zip to the sauce, sub in bottled chili sauce for the ketchup and sprinkle in some crushed red pepper at the end of cooking.
  • For extra flavor and color, try broiling the cooked ribs. Position oven rack four inches from broiler element. Set oven control to broil. Line rimmed sheet pan with foil. Spray with cooking spray. Remove ribs from slow cooker and place on foil; broil ribs 2 to 4 minutes or until sticky, crispy and blackened in spots.
