While you go about your day and get things done, the flavors develop in the Crock-Pot, making a mouth-watering, tasty dinner without much effort from your part.Growing up, my mom didn’t really cook pork in our house. And being Brazilian, BBQ sauce is also not a big part of our culinary flavors.
But 8 years ago, when I moved to the US, I absolutely got hooked on the delicious BBQ Pork Ribs I was able to try. Especially the ones my husband and I used to share in the early days of our relationship at the Ale House restaurants.
Why don’t Brazilians cook with BBQ sauce again? All I know is that they’re missing out over there.
Anyway… In the early years of our marriage, we worked a lot and didn’t really cook much at home, so I didn’t even get to try making those yummy ribs.
But after the babies were born and I got to stay more at home, I got to experiment a little more in the kitchen! How did I get to this recipe?
How this Easy Crock-Pot BBQ Pork Ribs Recipe came to exist
First, I tried making the pork ribs in the oven, but I’ve always had a complicated relationship with the oven when it comes to cooking meat. They always turned out to be stiff and chewy.
Has that ever happened to you? Because it happened to me several times.
I never got the temperature or time right. It was always a frustration trying to make them this way.
When I started cooking with the Crock-Pot, though, it was like a miracle had happened!
Never again did my meats, especially the pork ribs, came out stiff! It’s always a spectacle of tender meat. The kind that melts in your mouth!

A good side dish would be these Stuffed Baked Potatoes. I would top them simply with butter, cheese, and sour cream. Or, if you’re a bread lover (like I am), this Brazilian Cheese Bread will do the trick (and they’re gluten-free!)
