Slow Cook tender Pork Ribs

Slow Cook tender Pork Ribs or Air Fryer Pork Ribs are for sure one of our favourite dishes. Either way, they are amazing and delicious to eat. Both use very different techniques but both are very tender and full of flavour. Slow Cook tender Pork Ribs as the title says takes about two hours to cook but the results are succulent and juicy tender meat loose from the bone which can be served in so many ways. We just need to be creative in preparing our side dish. They can be roasted or sauteed vegetables, a bowl of with or brown rice, seasoned with the delicious pork broth or simply boiled potatoes with a drizzle of olive oil.

After storing the Ribs in separate containers for two different meals I also pour the delicious broth into a jar and store it in the fridge for when I want to made some delicious homemade soup. Nothing goes to waste when I use a Slow Cooker or the Instant Pot.

  • I love doing ribs in the slow cooker or instant pot. I’m curious what you need the oven to be preheated to 300F for in this recipe, though. Do you put them in after using the slow cooker for two hours? Thanks.

    • Leslie-Anne, in this recipe I use a Dutch oven and not a Slow Cooker. If I used a Slow Cooker, I would not use the oven, it would not be necessary. Thanks for your comment 🙂

  • you know the funny thing is I had bought some piri piri spice a while ago and as I was unpacking last week I was just thinking about what to use it for!
    now I have a reason; though am also realizing that we are still missing some key herbs in the ingredient department. Namely oregano & bay leaves! darn it! back out to the grocery store again! moving and setting up house always results in constant trips to the grocery store! I’m going to have to wait until the car comes since I keep forgetting so many things.

    great recipe! Will have to try it in the instant pot. Of course, that is once we find a butcher here too!!

    • Hello there! Well I hope you settle down sooner than later. If you do decide to make this recipe, using the Instant pot will be delightful as well. This time I preferred making it in a Dutch oven so that the ribs can grab all the flavours that were put in that same pot, because it is a slow cook. Hope you enjoy! Thanks 🙂

  • Slow cooked ribs in the oven are my favourite! I’ve tried cooking them in the slow cooker and instant pot, but it just isn’t the same. I love the seasoning you add to these. I’ve never tried piri piri so I’ll have to give that a go!

    • Thank you Leanne! The piri-piri in this recipe is mild. My kids wouldn’t eat it if it was hot! enjoy 🙂
