Slow Cooker Pineapple BBQ Ribs cook right in the slow cooker so no need to heat up the kitchen. Full of sweet pineapple flavor, these tender ribs are great!
Hey guys!! It is summer!! Summer means cook outs, BBQs and get togethers around the grill. Summer also means long sunny days, long sunny HOT days and this mama doesn’t really love the heat.
I do love a good rib dinner in the summer. They just go perfectly together. But summer and a hot kitchen or a long time in front of the hot grill isn’t always my idea of fun.
So when I want a super quick, fail proof way to make tender fall off the bone ribs, I reach for my slow cooker and my Smithfield Extra Tender Fresh Pork St. Louis Style Ribs.
These are my favorite ribs to use! Smithfield Extra Tender Fresh Pork St. Louis Style Ribs are always so tender and flavorful. These ribs and my slow cooker are my fail proof way to create the best ribs every time!
You only really need 3 ingredients to make these ribs but I add a couple spices in with the ribs while they are cooking. I get all my ingredients and my Smithfield Extra Tender Fresh Pork St. Louis Style Ribs right at Walmart where I do my weekly shopping. They have the best prices and I love that I can get everything I need (and more) at just one stop!
Walmart has high quality, fresh pork, fresh pork ribs, chops and marinated fresh pork and is my go to for fresh pork. I love to buy Smithfield for my family but you can purchase your favorite pork products from Walmart.
Smithfield® has so many delicious marinated pork products and those tender ribs there is something for everyone! Pork is so simple, versatile, and flavorful I love cooking with it year round but I love cooking with it in the summer whether indoors or out on the grill it is so flavorful and a break from the normal burgers and chicken.
Just a quick tip, chops, loins and roasts are best enjoyed when cooked to 145℉ with a 3 minute rest and follow the proper cooking temps below!
- Medium Rare: 145-150℉
- Medium: 150-155℉
- Medium Well: 155-160℉
- Well: 160℉
These Slow Cooker Pineapple BBQ Ribs are so easy to make and so delicious you will be making them every week!
I just put the ribs in my slow cooker with a sprinkle of onion powder, garlic salt, pepper, pineapple juice from the crushed pineapple, a splash of apple cider vinegar and a splash of liquid smoke (optional).
After they slow cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6-8 they are fall off the bone tender and I pop them on a cookie sheet and brush them with the BBQ sauce.
I just mix my favorite BBQ sauce (Great Value Honey BBQ Sauce) and some crushed pineapple. I make sure to get the ribs all coated before putting them under the broiler for a few minutes to caramelize.
These are so delicious!!! And so quick!! Just a few minutes in the morning to get everything in the crockpot then a few more minutes after cooking to broil and dinner is ready!!
These are soo tender I almost couldn’t photograph them because they just wanted to fall right off the bone, yum!!
So this summer be sure to stop into Walmart and stock up on fresh pork! Whether you get ribs to make these Slow Cooker Pineapple BBQ Ribs, chops to marinate and grill or Smithfield’s marinated roasts to throw on the grill you are sure to have a super delicious dinner in no time!
