  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced

  • 1 18-ounce bottle hickory-flavored barbeque sauce



  1. Preheat broiler.

  2. Sprinkle both sides of ribs with the salt and pepper.

  3. Place ribs on a wire rack on a large baking sheet.

  4. Broil ribs, bone side down, for 15 minutes.

  5. Remove from broiler.

  6. Carefully cut ribs into single-rib-portions (use tongs to hold steady).

  7. Place onion slices in the bottom of a 3 ½ to 4-quart slow cooker.

  8. Add ribs. Pour barbeque sauce over ribs.

  9. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 4 hours or on high-heat setting for 2 hours. If desired, serve with onion slices.
