Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 8 hours
Total Time 8 hours 10 minutes


  • Pork spare ribs.
  • (I get packets of about 4 ribs and use 3 packs)
  • 500ml bbq sauce.


  • Trim off excess fat from ribs. I de-bone aswell as it's easier to eat.
  • Place ribs in slow cooker and pour over the bbq sauce.
  • Cook on low for 8hours.
  • End result will be the most tender, full of flavor bbq ribs you've everything had!
  • Serve with veggies & brown rice with the sauce.

    Cooking time is 8 hours, is it on high or low?
    Do you put the ribs in upside position in de slowcooker?
    Thanks in advance for your answer.

    1st time I cooked ribs. Meat just fell off the bones. Will be making it again. Another winning meal ???

    Well this was our dinner tonight and it was absolutely delicious ?? I used two strips of ribs and 2 bottles of the Masterfoods sweet plum sauce. The meat was falling off the bone after about 6 hours. Very highly recommend.

    Made this today and it is absolutely fantastic. So tender & fall off the bone.
    I added (to my BBQ sauce) some cayenne pepper & sambal oelek for some spice.
    Cooked on low for 7hrs using the Tea Towel method for the last 2 hrs as was a little liquidy & this worked a treat.
    Didn’t bother putting in oven as it was so inviting as it was.
    Worth making.
