Slow-Cooker Barbecued Sticky Ribs
Apricot jam, pineapple juice, and soy sauce lend complex flavors to our sweet and sour sauce. When slathered on tender and moist ribs, it creates an easy dish that is sure to please.
Why This Recipe Works
In order to fit our ribs into the slow cooker for our barbecued sticky ribs recipe, we arranged the full racks of ribs standing up around the perimeter and finally spiraling in towards the center of the slow cooker, pouring the sauce over the top. Because we had left space between the ribs, they cooked evenly, and because the sauce was poured on top of the standing ribs, they slow-basted during cooking, absorbing more of the sauce’s flavors.
