I make slow cooker meals when I know that I have a busy day ahead. Recently I’ve shared a few slowcooker meals like Slowcooker Beans and Oxtails but I’ve been venturing out from the usually roast or stew and recently used it to make the BEST Slowcooker Pineapple BBQ Ribs! These ribs were a hit! Slowcooker Pineapple BBQ Ribs What I love about this recipe is that it’s perfect for fall gatherings like friendsgiving, thanksgiving or tailgating because it’s very hands off and can be made in advance. You can make it in the slowcooker then finish off under the broiler when it’s time to serve. Slowcooker Pineapple BBQ Ribs Slowcooker Pineapple BBQ Ribs I chose baby back ribs for this recipe because it’s not as fatty as spare ribs. The pineapple BBQ sauce, made with Texas Pete Original Hot Sauce, had the perfect balance of heat and sweet. This is sure to be a crowd pleaser and is as easy as can be. Slowcooker Pineapple BBQ Ribs starts with your favorite sauce to which you add canned crushed pineapple, brown sugar and Texas Pete Original Hot Sauce. Slowcooker Pineapple BBQ Ribs Texas Pete was perfect in this recipe because it add a bit of heat without overpowering the dish. I’m a huge fan of adding a bit of heat to my food, it balances out the dish and Texas Pete is a great way to add a bit of heat without being overwhelming. This recipe for the BBQ sauce makes quite a bit, so I when I removed the ribs from the sauce, I added it to a pot with canned pinto beans and made the best baked beans to go with the ribs! I also reserved some to serve with the ribs. Slowcooker Pineapple BBQ Ribs
