Slow Cooker BBQ Ranch Country Ribs


Another delicious crock pot recipe for ya! I prepared a simple homemade BBQ sauce that goes over Ranch seasoned boneless pork ribs. You are in for a treat when you serve this for dinner! I love these ribs because they make great leftovers too. Use the remaining BBQ pork shredded in sandwiches, quesadillas, and even over baked potatoes. Sky’s the limit ๐Ÿ™‚

Hope you enjoy!

BBQ sauce ingredients. Yum!

I used some pork boneless country style ribs.

Season those ribs with some dry Ranch seasoning.

Like so.

Time to start the sauce.

Add all of your ingredients to the bowl.

The worcestershire sauce, honey and vinegar.

A pinch of salt.


Time to mix!

BBQ sauce!

Pour your sauce over your ribs.

Spread evenly.

Close the lid and let it cook.

      Jenny says:

      Hi Lynn, I haven’t tried it without a crock pot, but I would place the ribs into a large baking pan, season w the Ranch seasoning then pour the BBQ sauce over top and bake at 350 until nice and tender.

    GinaE says:

    I love using my slow cooker and love getting new recipes to use with it. This sounds like a keeper. The ranch dressing is a great addition and a nice simple BBQ sauce. Many of the sauces get just too complicated for a quick dinner. This is right up my alley. Many thanks for sharing this one!!!!

  18. 18

    Yay! I have (almost) all these ingredients! Of course the best part is the crock pot! Thanks Picky Palate! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’ve never been a rib person – because of the actual rib part – but doing a boneless rib, just meat? Has me saying YES!!! So much yes!!

    katie says:

    I’m not a rib person, but my husband is and I know he would devour these quicker than I could put them on his plate. I must give this a try!

    My family makes country ribs all the time–but it’s become such a comfort food that I don’t know if I could ever give up the store-bought sauce! It just reminds me of summer when I was little, with fresh corn on the cob on the side. But I certainly would try this homemade version if the store is ever out of my favorite brand ๐Ÿ™‚

    Anna says:

    So since it’s just hubby and I for Easter this year, I’m going to make these and have this going while we’re at church. What a treat this will be to come home to! I’m excited to try these and thank you!!!

    Leah says:

    So I’ve decided I’m a little more then in love with you! LOL!
    I have a grocery list started (poor hubby, hope he can get it all!) and I can’t wait
    to try a couple things this week!
    I am a SAHM to 3 young ones and the hardest part of my day is meals! I am
    a simple eater so most recipes don’t look appealing to me (or the kids, right?)
    But everything you have seems like normal food, good food and I can’t
    wait to cook tomorrow!

    Thanks for sharing these!

    Chels R. says:

    This looks so good! I’m trying to get used to making more pork meals. By more pork, I mean not bacon, ham, or sausage. LOL, my husband isn’t a fan, but I think it’s great to try new things, so this will be getting filed away so I can make this sometime!

    Sarah says:

    Is the ranch packed really needed? What I mean is do you even taste it in the final product? Or would you be fine just using some garlic salt & pepper?

    • 33.1
      Jenny says:

      Hi Sarah,
      I like the ranch seasoning, but you could certainly do a blend of salt, pepper and garlic salt if you’d rather ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope you enjoy!

  34. 34

    Love the idea of adding the ranch to the ribs! Yum!

    I never buy ribs because I don’t know what to do with them, but I do love my slow cooker and seeing your recipe made me buy some this morning when I saw them on sale! I worked the last 3 nights, so I needed an easy dinner that would cook while I slept today – they’re in the crockpot now, I can’t wait to smell them when I wake up and see how they taste!

    I made these the other day. Really delicious! However, my sauce didn’t come out as nice as yours. It sort of broke apart so it was more like a tomato sauce.

    Melissa says:

    UGH, I just put this in my crock pot. I forgot to put the ranch dressing on the ribs before I poured the sauce on. I imagine it’s going to turn out just fine, but I hate messing up recipes like that. Annoys the heck outta me.
