These ribs are first baked, then they're cooked slowly in a crockpot with a tasty barbecue sauce.

Cook Time: 6 hours

Total Time: 6 hours


  • 2 racks of baby back pork spareribs
  • grill seasoning blend or salt and pepper
  • Sauce:
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon Creole mustard or Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon celery seed


Line a large baking pan (with sides) with foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Heat the oven to 350°.

Sprinkle the ribs all over with grill seasoning or salt and pepper. Arrange the ribs on the baking pan and bake for 45 minutes, turning once after about 30 minutes. Cut the ribs into serving-size portions and arrange in the slow cooker. Combine sauce ingredients and pour over the ribs. Cover and cook on LOW for 4 to 6 hours, until ribs are very tender.
Serves 4.
