How to make crock pot dr pepper ribs:
First, you want to remove the membrane from the back of the ribs. I use a knife to get one end of the membrane up on one side and then gently pull it off the rest of the ribs.
Cut the ribs into 3 pieces and add to the slow cooker.
Add in all the other ingredients on top of the ribs in the crock pot. It is that easy!
Cover and cook on low for 8-9 hours.
Once done, place on a foiled line cooking sheet and broil for 3-5 minutes until the ribs are slightly browned.
Serve with additional barbecue sauce and enjoy! Keep reading for the full recipe.
