 Ingredients List

  • 6-8 pounds pork ribs
  • 2 cups ketchup
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup Sriracha sauce more or less to taste!
  • 1 large garlic clove minced
  • 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons seasoned salt
  • 1 tablespoon liquid smoke optional
  • Barbecue sauce optional, cooking day only


Rub meat with season salt and cayenne pepper.

In medium bowl, whisk together ketchup, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, garlic , red pepper flakes, sriracha sauce and liquid smoke until smooth.

Divide meat into two gallon-size Ziploc bags. (Be sure to label bags before using!) Divide sauce in half and pour over meat; freeze until needed.

Thaw in refrigerator for 24 hours; pour contents into slow cooker and cook on low heat for 4-6 hours. If you don't have time to thaw them ahead of time, you can throw them in the crockpot frozen, just be sure to cook them a little longer--5-7 hours instead of 4-6. Once cooked, remove from crock pot and toss with your favorite barbecue sauce.

Serve with coleslaw and hot sauce for an added kick.
