Fall Off the Bone Ribs

My husband requested ribs for Father's Day and I tried this new recipe from Six Sisters Stuff blog - it was great!! Everything ribs should be: sticky, moist, flavorful, and fall of the bone tender. My husband loved them and so did my kids. I am sometimes intimidated by ribs, but these were actually quite easy to make since they are mostly cooked in the crockpot and then finished under the broiler or on the grill. YAY for easier to make ribs! I served it alongside my husbands favorite pasta salad that I make every Father's Day and watermelon.

Fall Off the Bone Ribs

2, 2-3 lb racks of ribs (pork loin ribs or baby back)
3 1/2 cups pineapple juice
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2, 16 oz bottles BBQ sauce, divided

Cut slabs of ribs into serving size pieces of 2-3 ribs. Place ribs in the crockpot. Combine pineapple juice, brown sugar, and 1 bottle of BBQ sauce; pour over ribs. Cook on low for 10 hours.

Broiler (I used this method):
Line a cookie sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray. Gently lift ribs out of crockpot with tongs and place on cookie sheet. Brush ribs liberally with BBQ sauce. Place under broiler for about 5 minutes. Flip ribs and brush again with BBQ sauce. Broil for another 5 minutes or until BBQ sauce it set up and sticky.

Place ribs gently on the grill and brush with BBQ sauce. Turn the ribs twice, slathering with more sauce each time - they will take 10-15 minutes to glaze over.
