Crockpot BBQ Ribs


The thing about summer is...it's hot in Texas.  The last thing I want is to flip on the oven more than absolutely necessary.  Necessary in my world involves melting wax to make crayons or baking cupcakes.  The end.  I started trying a series of crockpot recipes....it's an unexplored territory (for the most part) in my world, and you know what....I'm still not totally sold.  BUT, of the 10 recipes, this is one of about 2 (truly) I tried and actually liked.....these really turned out VERY tender. 
I put the following recipe that I found here together the night before, and then threw them on low while I was at work (8+ hours). 

CROCKPOT BBQ RIB RECIPE
I halved this recipe so it would fit in my (smaller) crockpot)
Ingredients: 
-5lbs of ribs  (I used pork, only because they were smaller)
-One bottle of bbq sauce (pick your favorite, this is going to ultimate be the main flavor you taste on your meat)
-Yellow onion,m diced
-8 cloves of garlic, (smush and chop)
-2 green onions (chopped)
-Dash of black pepper
Instructions:
1.  Place your ribs on a pan in a 400 degree oven for 15 minutes. 
2.  Place (browning ribs) in the bottom of your crockpot.
3.  Cover ribs with veggies, sauce, and seasoning. 
4.  Cook on low 8-10 hours, or high 4-6 hours.
