These Sweet and Spicy Ribs are made in the slow cooker so you know they will be fall-off-the-bone tender. The sweet and spicy barbecue sauce makes them even better.
Well hello there! It’s Mandy from Mandy’s Recipe Box with a recipe you can make any time of the year. Do you have a slow cooker? I hope so because it’s one of the best things you can own. A friend of mine had eight kids (she now has 10) and didn’t own a slow cooker. Can you even understand that? I told her she needed to get one stat because with that many mouths to feed, she NEEDED a slow cooker in her life. The best part besides it cooking dinner for you is that you can use it all year long. So make sure to get one if you don’t own one already. Now onto the recipe! If you watch for sales on the ribs, you can stock up and freeze them to make recipes like this later.
