The BEST Crock Pot BBQ Ribs; Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Soy Free, Nut Free Recipe

I’ve made a million ribs in the Crock Pot from a million different recipes.  They never seem to be as good as the ones my mom used to make on the grill. They just didn’t have enough flavor.  I was making some appetizers on Super Bowl Sunday and decided to throw some ribs in the Crock Pot.  Using stuff I had on hand and a combination of old recipes I came up with these.  They are AMAZING! So tender they fall off the bone – hence the somewhat messy pic below 🙂

 The BEST Crock Pot/Slow Cooker BBQ Ribs Recipe


3 lbs Baby Back Ribs, cut into chunks of 4-5 ribs each

1 can root beer

1 Tbsp My “Everything Seasoning”

1 cup ketchup

3 tbsp brown sugar

2 tbsp Coconut Aminos (or soy sauce if you’re not soy free)

2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

3 cloves garlic, minced


Cut ribs into segments of 4-5 ribs.  Rub the meaty side of each segment with my “everything” seasoning and place in the Crock Pot.  Pour in a can of root beer. In a seperate bowl, mix ketchup, brown sugar, Coconut Aminos, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, and minced garlic. Reserve 1/3 cup of the sauce and place in the fridge.  Add the rest of the sauce to the Crock Pot. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.  Drain most of the liquid, brush ribs with the remaining sauce and cook for 1/2 hour longer.  Enjoy!
