TOTAL COST = $3.96 (approximate)

Prep Time = 5 minutes (marinading riblets overnight is optional)

Cook Time = 4 hours on high or 7 hours on low


Make marinade. It should turn into a nice paste. Clean riblets and then put them into a gallon size ziplock bag. Pour in marinade. Close bag and massage riblets until they are thoroughly covered in the seasoning paste. You can either marinate your hen over night or just season with marinade right before putting the riblets into the crockpot. What ever fits your schedule. I marinated mine overnight. Make BBQ sauce. Place ribs into crockpot (without ziplock bag of course!). Pour BBQ on top. Turn on crockpot on at the high or low setting. Cover and let it cook.

This is how the riblets look after I added the marinade.


OMG! This smelled heavenly when I opened the door to my apartment. And it was soooo good. The meat was falling off the bones and it had just the perfect hint of heat and sweetness. I am so proud of myself. I served it with homemade mashed potatoes. My baby ate all of hers and wanted more.

Of course I saved the sauce that remained in the crockpot. It will make a great sauce on the salmon I will make later this week.

Yeah man! Ya girl can BURN!!

@ Sistah Ant

Thanks girl. It was good.

@ Hrtsdzr

I didn't even think about onions and bell peppers. I can imagine how good that was. Gotta add those next time.

I usually post about one recipe per week. I don't know if you are new or not but click on my recipes label and you will see my past recipes. This summer I will be cooking much more so I may increase the amount of postings per week.

Glad you enjoyed it.
