Recipe type: Slow Cooker
Cuisine: BBQ
Serves: 8
  • 4-6 lbs of Country Style Pork Ribs or Pork Spare Ribs (cut into singles or doubles...this makes it easier for serving and for putting in the slow cooker)
  • ½-3/4 cup Mayonaise
  • 1 white or yellow onion sliced
  • 6-8 large segments of garlic, crushed
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tsp Italian Seasoning or ¾ tsp basil and ¼ tsp oregano
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 1 bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce
  1. In a large bowl (Or in your slow cooker insert..makes for less dishes) combine Mayonaise, onion, garlic, bay leaves, Italian Seasoning and some salt and pepper (i used about ¼-1/2 tsp salt and ⅛ tsp pepper)
  2. Mix it all up and then add the ribs. Using your hands make sure each rib gets a coating of the mixture. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour or overnight if you remember to do it before going to bed.
  3. Place marinated ribs into the slow cooker or if you used your slow cooker insert to marinate them just put on the slow cooker. Turn the temperature to low for 6 hours or high for 4 hours.
  4. After the ribs are finished cooking in the slow cooker, remove and place them on a large cookie sheet. Brush both sides with barbecue sauce.
  5. Broil the ribs until barbecue sauce is bubbly. Turn over and broil the other side. Add more barbecue sauce if desired.
