November 26 Barbecue Ribs

Another wonderful recipe from the wonderful Make It Fast, Cook It Slow cookbook. There are so many good recipes.

  • 5 pounds ribs
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 8 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 (18-oz) bottle barbecue sauce
Use a 6-quart slow cooker. Toss the ribs in the cooker, add the onion, garlic, black pepper, and sauce. Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours or on low for 4 to 6 hours. 

Audrey's Tasks:
  1. Help measure and add ingredients
  2. Cover and turn on cooker
Mom's Tasks:
  1. Gather ingredients
  2. Assist Audrey
I let Audrey help me dice the onion. She puts her hand on the handle and then I cover hers with mine. I believe it will help her learn how to handle a knife when she is old enough to understand the responsibility and have better fine motor skills. We talk each time about how she is only allowed to touch the knife with momma helping. She has been very good with it. The ribs were amazing. Like Stephanie O'Dea says, they fall off the bone.


  1. You are laying a great foundation for your daughter to have good cooking skills when she is older! And you never know what they will remember. My daughter (now college age) remembers making cookies and how the brown sugar looked like sand castles when you dumped it in the mixing bowl! Cheers!

  2. Making this again tonight and this comment makes me happy. Audrey calls the packed brown sugar 'cupcakes.'


Audrey wants to hear from you!
