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.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 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

Cooking Directions

  1. 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.
  2. 2 Mix BBQ sauce and liquid smoke until well combined.
  3. 3 Place ribs in the slow cooker and pour BBQ sauce mixture evenly over ribs.
  4. 4 Cook on Low until ribs are tender, 4 to 6 hours.
  5. 5 Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.
  6. 6 Remove ribs from the slow cooker and baste with remaining BBQ sauce.
  7. 7 Broil ribs in the preheated oven for 3 to 5 minutes on each side.

Chef's Notes

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


  1. Was so easy, so good and I wish I made extra!!! Only made for 4, the hubs ate it that night!!!
  2. this is the best meal I have made on this app
  3. This was so easy and delicious. Pork tips are on sale so often at our local grocery store. This makes for an inexpensive meal that can feed an entire family
  4. Off the chain good !!! Beautiful coloring, fell off the bone, succulent taste. I ate each piece slowly savoring the flavor.
  5. I made this and although the taste was okay, it is probably something I wouldn't make again. Although I did like the bite that it gave, it was a little to sweet for my taste. Overall okay, but I wouldn't rave about it.
  6. Love the rub. ribs were delicious and meat was tender. really important not to overcrowd the pot. will be making this again!
  7. Yes I added 1/2 cup of beer
  8. Really good. Didn't change a thing. My kids even ate them.
