Slow Cooker SWEET Pineapple BBQ Ribs
These Ribs are sweet and flavorful spiced with Pineapple juice and Brown Sugar, cooked till tender in the crock pot and then glazed and grilled or broiled for a few minutes before serving and oh so good, you're going to love how these turn out.
2 - 3 lb. ribs, rack (pork loin ribs are the best)
3 1/2 c. pineapple juice (reserve 1/4 c. for basting before they are grilled)
1 1/2 c. brown sugar
16 oz. BBQ sauce, bottle (favorites, my homemade, or Jack Daniels or Dr Pepper BBQ Sauces)
Love this recipe as I can put it on early in the morning, and know my meal can be ready is just 15 or 20 minutes in the evening!
Spray the slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray or use a slow cooker liner!
Cut defrosted rib slabs into individual slabs (about 2-3 ribs each). Placing the ribs into the slow cooker.
Mix the pineapple juice and brown sugar together and pour over the ribs.
Cover. Cook on High for 7-8 hours or Low for 10-12 hours.
When the ribs are done in the slow cooker, use tongs to gently pull them out (they will fall apart when you touch them).
Start the grill on medium heat.
While the grill is heating up, mix together the bottle of BBQ sauce and the 1/4 cup of pineapple juice you reserved.
Gently place the ribs on the grill and and brush with BBQ/Pineapple sauce. Turning the ribs twice, slathering with more sauce each time (you can’t have enough sauce!)
The ribs will take about 10-15 minutes to glaze over (as soon as that sauce starts to turn sticky, you know they are done!).
Or if weather doesn't allow, broil these in the oven 10-15 minutes just until the sauce starts to bubble or as brown as you like.
