  1. I wonder if you could do this same recipe in the oven? And cook for 2 he’s it so?

  2. Can this be done with Beef RIbs

  3. I tried the apricot ribs. I liked them. They had a good flavor. They have just a hint of sweetness. But, they did not have a great apricot flavor. Next time, I will double the apricot preserves.

  4. The sauce recipe sounds really good. When I do my ribs in the crock, I let them cook on high for 4-5 hours. I turn it down to low. Dump out the grease then top them off with the sauce for the rest of the cooking time. It turns out really well.

  5. I found ribs on sale this week so I”m going to give this recipe a try tomorrow. It looks delicious.

  6. I’ve been wanting to try cooking ribs in my crock pot but I’ve been leery about how they’d turn out and so many of the recipes seem a tad complicated. I trust that all your recipes are guaranteed to be crowd pleasers so I will be making this soon as we head back to school!

  7. Those look delicious! I’ve never thought to cook ribs in a crock pot. I’ve always made mine in either the oven or BBQ.
