Slow-Cooker Smoky BBQ Pork Ribs and 20+ Game Day Foods #FootballFood

Do you ever go on a Pinterest binge where you find yourself pinning something everyday for days on end?  Well, that has been me lately; between trying new zoodle recipes (or any excuse to use my new spiralizer), to getting ready to celebrate Mr. K and Miss L's birthdays, to preparing for next weekend's Big Game, it seems like I'm turning to Pinterest every night to help me think through ideas.  Well, today, I'm passing the addiction on to you and I'm sharing my Slow-Cooker Smoky BBQ Pork Ribs along with over 20 other great recipes from some of my blogging friends to help you find a great dish for next weekend's Big Game or really any day 😊

When it comes to the Big Game, I don't know about you, but I'm really only there to watch it so I can eat great food and hopefully see a couple good commercials.  So for me, anything that is simple and can sit around, is a win for me.  That is why for my Smoky BBQ Pork Ribs, made with Chipolte Chiles in Adobo Sauce, I turned to my slow-cooker.  I hope you enjoy these easy, savory Pork Ribs at your Big Game Party!

Slow-Cooker Smoky BBQ Pork Ribs and 20+ Game Day Foods #FootballFood

Slow-Cooker Smoky BBQ Pork Ribs

4# Country Style Pork Ribs
4 garlic cloves, minced
Salt and Pepper

BBQ Sauce:
1 cup Ketchup
1/4 cup Brown Sugar
1/4 cup Chipolte Chiles in Adobo Sauce, chopped
2 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 tsp Salt

Place pork ribs in a slow cooker.  Sprinkle with salt, pepper and minced garlic.  Cover and cook on low for 4 hours.

About 30 minutes before serving, drain and discard juices from the slow cooker and pour or spoon BBQ Sauce over the ribs.  To make the BBQ Sauce, combine all the ingredients and mix well.  (And by the way, this is my go-to BBQ Sauce that I use on everything!)

***Cook's Tip***  Chipolte Chiles in Adobo Sauce is bought in a small can.  You will never use the entire can in one recipe, so what I do is put the entire can (chiles and sauces) in the food processor and mince til the chiles are finely chopped.  I then use the mixed chopped chiles and sauce in the recipe as directed and put the unused in a freezer storage bag.  I freeze the leftovers and then thaw the bag the next time I need chipolte chiples in adobo for a recipe, like for my Sweet and Spicy Hog Wild Baked Beans, recipe #20 down below. 😉

  3. Mmmmmm, those ribs sound delicious. I guess it's getting to be crunch time and I need to narrow down the menu options for the big game. The only problem is everything looks so darn good!
