Try these easy to prepare pork spare ribs, smothered in a homemade BBQ sauce.

Hello friend!

This time of the year is getting busy for us, so I tend to favor crock pot meals.

Preferably ones easy to prepare and fabulous to eat. 😁

We hadn’t had pork spare ribs in awhile, and I wanted to try a sauce on them, so I mixed everything together, turned the crockpot on for 8 hours and…voila….they turned out super well!

It’s hard to have something NOT turn out well in the crockpot, but we were especially impressed by these ribs.

They start with an easy homemade BBQ sauce…

…then layering the ribs in the crockpot, covered in the sauce (I tripled the recipe for our family)…

…and after 8 hours, they were falling-off-the-bone ready to go!

I’d recommend this for your next busy day supper. 😊
