    Crock Pot Ribs

    I started cooking them at 1:38pm and in the recipe it states that it needs 7 hours, low and slow. It's only been almost 5 hours and the ribs have exceeded 145 degrees and I don't see many bones sticking out alot to indicate they're done. I'm lost and confused, I followed the recipe to the T and I always manage to mess up anything or everything I try to cook.

    This is where I stand as of 5:45 pm and there still in the crock pot as we speak.

      145 is not sufficient temp at 5 hours to break down the connective material in the ribs and tighten the proteins enough to produce pull back.

      If the recipe says 7 hours, I'm not sure why you'd expect it to be done earlier than 8:38 PM.

      I wonder if you can do the bend test on them to make sure they're done? I'd say go with the 7 hours or longer. Generally it takes about 5 1/2 hours for a rack of pork loin ribs on the kettle with the SnS running @225 - 230's. I think (but not sure) that 225ish is considered high on a slo-cooker.

      Good Luck!

        Here's Meathead's Cabin Fever Slow Cooker Ribs. If this is the recipe you're using, you're looking for the ribs to be fall off the bone (very) tender to know when they are done. I hope yours are already there!

          You want a pull apart test on these dudes.

              Recipes, like battle plans, are fine until put into practice. They are guidelines at best. Riff away!

                I've never done ribs in the crock pot but have done them often in the pressure cooker. Completely different animal from the ribs the smoker puts out. I will admit I prefer the smoker BUT the ribs the pressure cooker reminds me of old time cooking. Ribs and kraut-ribs and cabbage were the ribs I knew growing up and I still like them!

                  I've seen the recipe in my pressure cooker book and have been trying to convince myself to give it a shot.

                Variety is a good thing Cheef . My mom used to simmer ribs in tomato sauce she was making for spaghetti. Best red meat sauce ever.

                  Yeah Man...my mom simmered pork chops and sometimes a braciole made with flank steak in her sauce. Sauce was great but always thought the meat was kind of dry...BUT ribs...that's got to be great. I'll be trying that!!!

                  They don't get dry and the sauce gets _rich_.

                  After 4 hours (no bones sticking out) they reached their temp and they looked ok. I bit into one of them and I can tell they weren't ready at all. So, I put them back and cooked them for the suggested time frame of 7-9 hours. After an additional 3 hours they looked great and tasted great.

                  Glad to hear it! Yes, it takes a long time to cook ribs in the slow cooker.

                7 hours does not seem long enough, especially if you put cook them on low.

                When we do crock-pot ribs, usually during the work week, we cut them up into a few sections, toss a few quartered onions in the bottom, a little liquid smoke, rub down with a Memphis style rub, dump some store-bought BBQ sauce, (Sweet Baby Ray's or Stubbs Memphis style), and set it on high. They go on at 7:00am and they come off when we get home, any time between 5:00 and 6:00. That's 10 hrs, on high, and they come out perfect, every single time.

                Honestly, it's almost impossible to overcook ribs, or any cheap, tough cut of pork, in a crock-pot.

                  Thanks for your input, I'll take that into consideration next time I cook them in the crock pot thanks.

                Agreed. I've never done them in less than 10 hours, set on high.

                  If you've cooked them long enough, they'll be too tender for that.
