Amazing Slow Cooked Organic Ribs Recipe
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
One of my passions is BBQ! A great BBQ requires time and patients. This dish might take a little longer, but you are well rewarded with the most delicious barbecue. I knew it would be a challenge to create a BBQ sauce without brown sugar, or a ton of regular sugar. After several attempts, I came up with a delicious healthy barbecue sauce that you can top on of ribs, chicken, hamburgers and pizza’s or anything else you might like barbecue sauce on!
Serves: 1 Rack of Ribs
  • 1 rack of baby back ribs
  • 1½ cups of favorite BBQ sauce or you can make your own see recipe
  • dry rub (optional) see recipe
  1. Remove membranes from ribs.
  2. Cut ribs into about 3 rib sections, season with rub of choice. If using a rub, you can leave the rub on overnight in the refrigerator for better flavor and then proceed with recipe.
  3. Place ribs in a large 9x13" baking dish.
  4. Cover with BBQ sauce see recipe
  5. Cover with foil and refrigerate several hours.
  6. Remove from refrigerator and cook covered ribs at 250 degrees for 3½ hours. *Note* Foil is best to lock in the steam, so be sure to tightly cover the 9x13" pan with foil.
  7. After cooking time is complete, remove tin foil and place on a medium high heat grill for 5 minutes basting the whole time. Grill until crispy on top.
  8. If you don't want to grill you can remove tin foil from top and broil them for 5-10 minutes for a crispy top.

    I made some BBQ awhile back and froze some it; I think it is better than went it was freshly made! I have been wanting to try sweetening it with maple syrup or coconut sugar.

  2. Jan Martin Whitlinger says:

    Halle, our family prefers Sweet & Salty Broccoli salad to coleslaw at most functions… it’s my husband’s absolute favorite! Let me know if you want to try it!

  3. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    Would love the recipe Jan! I have broccoli in the fridge!

  4. Jan Martin Whitlinger says:

    Ok–but, I don’t have any real recipe. Perhaps you can come up with measurements to share? Basically, mix raw broccoli florets (although I have blanched them on occasion, it’s not necessary) with crumbled bacon, sunflower seeds (I usually stir these in just before serving), raisins, and a bit of chopped red onion (if desired–I don’t usually use it). Then just stir in a “coleslaw-type” dressing: use your homemade mayo, add a bit of vinegar (any kind is fine, although I usually use rice or apple cider) and some organic brown sugar (or palm sugar, rapidura, etc.) You just add the dressing components until you get the right balance of sweet and sour, and it is of a slight pouring consistency. Salad is best when allowed to blend for several hours, and my husband prefers the leftovers–if there are any. 😉 Hope this makes sense!

  5. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    Totally makes sense Jan! I have seen recipes like this before and they add some shredded cheddar cheese and white raisins. I am going to make it today :) I will let you know how it turns out. Thanks

  6. Jan Martin Whitlinger says:

    Did you make your salad, Halle? I made my version last night with some grilled sausages for my husband’s “homecoming” dinner… He’s been away for 2 weeks, so I knew he would appreciate his favorite salad–especially after eating out for 2 weeks straight! I also made some sauteed zucchini with cherry tomatoes, and when he saw me cooking it he said “what’s THAT?” I asked him if he’d forgotten what fresh veggies looked like? 😉

  7. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    LOL Jan :) I have the broccoli ready but can you believe it when I say I am out of bacon!! Going to store tomorrow :)

  8. Jan Martin Whitlinger says:

    OUT of BACON?!? Say it isn’t so!!! 😉

  9. Whole Lifestyle Nutrition says:

    I know Jan! I never run out of bacon, what to do :)

  10. Christen Chandler says:

    I know! I love your ribs!!!

    Awesome job Halle! Especially liked the lip smack at the end while tasting your finished masterpiece. Thanks for an organic version of a great recipe. You have made my day easier!

    This isn’t vegan.

      I never said it was vegan?! I am not a vegan website. Even though not vegan as you state, it is super delicious! :)
