  • 4 pounds pork baby back ribs
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar sweetener (monk fruit if keto)

  • 3 teaspoons seasoned salt

  1. Prepare the ribs by removing the membrane from the bottom side of the ribs. See notes below if you are unsure how to do this.

  3. Place the ribs in a lightly greased 4-6 quart slow cooker. In a mixing bowl combine the BBQ sauce, apple cider vinegar and liquid smoke if using. Pour over the ribs.
  4. Secure the lid on the crock pot and cook on low for 7-8 hours or on high for 4 hours.
  5. Carefully the ribs on a baking sheet and brush with additional BBQ sauce and the cooking liquid from the crock pot if desired. Broil for 3-4 minutes until the edges become caramelized.

Note: You can also finish the ribs under the broiler in your oven for a crispy finish.
