Slow Cooker BBQ Pork

  • First, sprinkle salt, pepper, and garlic powder all over both sides. 
  • Next, add half BBQ sauce over both sides.
  • Now, place in the slow cooker with ribs leaning against the sides of the walls (this is a trick to steam the ribs and brown them). Then pour rest of BBQ sauce on top of the ribs. 
  • Next, cook for 6 hours on low. 
  • Finally, gently pull the bones out trying to keep the meat all in one piece (see video above). Now place on garlic bread with pickles and enjoy!

  • Finally, sprinkle with parsley and set aside for pork.
