How to make Apple Butter BBQ Spare Ribs
Step 1: Lightly spray your slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray. I used an olive oil non-stick cooking spray.
Step 2: Salt and pepper both sides of your ribs to taste, then set them in the slow cooker. I prefer using fresh cracked pepper because it has a little more flavor to it, but any black pepper will work.
Step 3: In a medium size bowl, mix together the Musselman’s Apple Butter and barbecue sauce until well combined. Pour the sauce mixture over your ribs.
I used a spoon to make sure all the ribs were covered evenly, everywhere.
Step 4: Top the sauced ribs with onion slices and apple slices. Any apple will work. I prefer gala or pink lady apples, but whatever you have on hand would work.
Step 5: Cover and cook on low for about 7 hours. If you are looking to speed things up, you could cook it on high for 4 hours.
However, we prefer a soft and tender rib, which comes from cooking at a low temperature for a longer amount of time (low and slow).
