What Makes This Pinworthy?

If you are a fan of ribs with crazy tender meat, then this is the recipe for you. After cooking in a slow cooker for about seven hours, the meat literally falls off the bone and melts in your mouth. When paired with the homemade sauce, these ribs are absolute perfection.

Making ribs doesn’t get much easier than this- it is a simple matter of preparing the meat, coating it with a simple rub, and then placing them in a slow cooker with some water. At the very end, the ribs are placed in the oven to broil- after that, it is a simple matter of serving them with sauce and enjoying this wonderful dish.

One of the best things about barbecue ribs is that they can be paired with just about any side dish or dessert from corn to cobbler to a coleslaw. The possibilities are truly endless!
