Baby Back Ribs
(Slow Cooker)

4 pounds pork baby back ribs
1/3 cup dark brown sugar
1 Tablespoon paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon ground oregano
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/4 cup barbecue sauce (optional)

Yield: Serves 4

Trim excess fat from ribs. Combine dry ingredients and rub over the surface of the ribs. Place ribs in slow cooker or crock pot standing on their edge with the meaty side out. Cook for about 8 hours. Remove ribs from slow cooker and brush with barbecue sauce.

*I cook this recipe for about five hours on high setting in my KitchenAid slow cook warming drawer.
