Learn to make flavorful, fall apart tender beef ribs in the crock pot!
These savory beef ribs are the perfect recipe for fall off the bone tender ribs without heating up the kitchen or requiring us to stand over a grill. One of my favorite ways to slow cook meat is by using a combination of bottled bbq sauce, fresh lemon, fresh onion, and a bottle or can of coca cola. Each ingredient plays a key role in tenderizing and infusing the meat with flavor and the blend of the four together is finger licking good.
Of course, being able to toss and go makes this an even better recipe. Throw it in before you head out for the day and have a barbecue feast waiting when you come home! But if you wanted to make them in the oven you can also check out our oven baked Baby Back Ribs right here.

For these crock pot beef ribs you will need:
- Country beef ribs (or ribs of your choice)
- Bottle of bbq sauce
- Can or bottle of Coca Cola
Now for how to make em…
Place all ingredients in a 6 quart slow cooker.
(As long as your ribs will easily fit in this slow cooker, the amount of ingredients are the same)
Cook this on low, 7-8 hours or high, 3-4 hours.
I prefer to go on the longer end of cooking time so that the meat is extra tender so for me that would be low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours.
Yum! There is so much flavor in this fall apart tender beef!
Enjoy! I like to serve these with Perfect Roasted Vegetables to keep the meal low fuss and delicious.
