Easy and Delicious Crockpot BBQ Ribs


Rack of Baby Back Ribs

Rib Rub:
1 Tablespoon ground cumin
1 Tablespoon granulated garlic
1 Tablespoon smoked paprika
1 Tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon chile powder
*Mix everything together

BBQ Sauce:
6oz tomato paste
4 Tablespoons ghee, melted
3 Tablespoons Franks hot sauce
5 Tablespoons apple juice (100% no sugar added)
2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup water
2 teaspoons yellow mustard (check labels)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
5 dates, pitted
*Combine everything in blender, until well combined. I use my vitamix.

Make your rib rub and BBQ sauce first. Then rub your ribs with the rib rub mixture. Use your fingers to rub the mixture into the meaty side of the ribs. Next, place your ribs in the crockpot with the meaty side against the inside crockpot wall.
Then cover ribs with your homemade BBQ sauce or 2-3 cups of your favorite store bought sauce (Tessemae's is Whole30 approved).
Turn the crockpot on low and cook for 4-5 hours  (check after 4 hours).
You want to cook the ribs until the meat is falling off the bone. Remove ribs from the crockpot and let them sit for 5-10 minutes. I place them on a large serving tray or just a baking sheet (cover with foil). Then cut the ribs apart by cutting between the bones in the meaty section. Pour leftover sauce over ribs and enjoy!
