💭 Tips

  • For easy clean up spray your slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray or use a slow cooker liner.
  • Pork should reach an internal temperature of at least 145°F, according to the USDA. However, many chefs recommend cooking pork until it reaches an internal temperature of 160°
  • Broiling the ribs is an optional step, but we enjoy the caramelized flavor it gives them.
