Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • In the crock of a slow cooker, mix together the beef broth, honey mustard, honey, water, barbeque sauce, soy sauce, and maple syrup. Slice ribs apart, leaving an even amount of meat on each side of the bone. Place them into the slow cooker so that they are covered by the sauce. If there is not enough sauce, you may add a little water or beef broth to compensate.

  • Cover, and cook on High for 5 hours, or until the meat falls easily from the bones.

Partner Tip

Try using a Reynolds® slow cooker liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.

I've only rated one other dish 5*.Came out absolutely perfect. Only observation was that I checked them at the 4hr mark and they were ready. Had I waited 5 hrs, they would have been mush in the bottom of the pot. What flavor!!! Made them again, this time I put them under the broiler for a few minute after I took them out of the crock (after 4hrs). They were tender - but dry. Guess I won't do that again (the broiler part).

I substitute ribs for thick, boneless pork chops and they always taste amazing. After cooking, I strain the liquid into a sauce pan. Then. I mix 2tbsp corn starch to 2 tbsp cold water, add it to the liquid, and bring to a boil until thick (about five minutes). It makes for a WONDERFUL sauce to pour over the pork chops - guests love it every time! Read More

I used pork country style ribs & seared them first to remove some of the fat. After they were done & falling off the bone, I plated the ribs on a platter & poured the liquid into a saucepan & reduced it by a third; adding cornstarch mixed in cold water when reduced. It thickened up perfectly! I served these w/ baked white american macaroni & cheese, cola beans & onions & cucumbers marinated in Italian dressing. Talk about some comfort food!!! Read More

there are really no words for this! MMMMM! I never thought that a crock pot could make such delicious ribs. The meat is so tender that it falls right off of the bone when taking them out. ( that's a good thing)very easy to make works well with regular bbq sauce substituted as well.! Read More

I gave this only 4* b/c of the thinness of the sauce. I doubled the amount of meat and used country style boneless pork ribs. Therefore I decided to 4X the sauce ingredients except for the beef broth (I used 2 - 14.5 oz cans for that). I ran out of soy sauce so used some teriyaki sauce I had on hand. I added 1 tsp. liquid smoke, 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 tsp. ground ginger, 1 tsp. garlic powder, 1/2 tsp black pepper to liquid then added it to the meat in the slow cooker. I cooked for 1 hour on high setting and then 4 hours on the low setting. Meat turned out very tender but the sauce needed some work (which after reading previous reviews I expected). I strained the sauce into a saucepan and brought to a boil and continued boiling for 15 minutes. Then I added 1/4 cup cornstarch mixed with 1/4 cup cold water, returned to a boil and cooked until thickened. Next time I'll use 1/2 cup of cornstarch and cold water b/c the sauce was still a little thin. However, the taste was GREAT!!! I'll be making this again soon!!! Read More

Scaled to 2.5 lbs of ribs and used a full bottle of Sweet Baby Ray's Honey BBQ. Still was runny but man that is one tasty sauce!!! 2.5 hours on HIGH and 4.5 hours on LOW - these to me were perfect. (DH thought they were a touch dry). Will make again but next time I'll be adding in either cayenne or hot sauce for a bit of a kick to the sweet. Read More

I served a party of 25 this recipe and it received rave reviews! I loved that it was so easy to make too. I changed the recipe to 21 servings and used boneless country style pork ribs and was able to cook it all in just two 3.5qt crockpots. Served with homemade corn muffins, canned baked beans and roasted summer squash, along with a small keg of root beer. Read More

EASY and DELICIOUS - what more could you ask for? I used worcesterhire instead of soy because of personal preference only. Meat is so tender - falls off the bone! If you like moist ribs, you'll love this! Thanks for the great recipe!!!!! Read More
