Slow Cooker Pork Rib Tips Cooking your rib tips in a slow cooker will give you tender, falling-off-the-bone ribs. Then finish them off under the broiler or throw them on the grill for a few minutes.

prep: 10 mins cook: 4 hrs 10 mins additional: 10 mins total: 4 hrs 30 mins Servings: 4 Yield: 4 servings


  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 pound pork rip tips
  • 1 (18 ounce) bottle BBQ sauce, divided
  • 1 tablespoon liquid smoke flavoring


    Step 1

    Mix brown sugar, chili powder, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder in a small bowl. Rub each rib with dry rub mixture until thoroughly coated. Let rest for 10 minutes.

    Step 2

    Mix BBQ sauce and liquid smoke until well combined.

    Step 3

    Place ribs in the slow cooker and pour BBQ sauce mixture evenly over ribs.

    Step 4

    Cook on Low until ribs are tender, 4 to 6 hours.

    Step 5

    Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven’s broiler.

    Step 6

    Remove ribs from the slow cooker and baste with remaining BBQ sauce.

    Step 7

    Broil ribs in the preheated oven for 3 to 5 minutes on each side.

Cook's Note:

Instead of broiling the rib tips, you can also throw them on the hot grill.
