Apple Butter BBQ Spareribs

I love meals I can throw in the slow cooker, and have ready by the time I get home. Whenever I have a long or busy day, this is my go to. I throw the ribs in the slow cooker and the apple butter does the rest. These Apple Butter BBQ Spareribs are so juicy and tender. You are going to love how delicious they are. Watch how to make them below.

We couldn’t believe how easy this recipe was and especially how delicious. Musselman’s Apple Butter adds such an amazing sweet taste to every recipe, and makes these ribs absolutely amazing.

The Apple Butter adds a delicious sweet taste to the savory meat. Musselman’s Apple Butter is the best part of the whole recipe.

It has the most amazing flavor and pairs great with meat. The apples also add the perfect sweetness to the BBQ flavor.  This will definitely be added to your meal rotation.

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).

what should I serve these with?

I am a sucker for ribs and potatoes. There are so many potato variations you could make with this particular recipe.

I love a good creamy mashed potato. My favorite is our Make Ahead Mashed Potatoes. They are so creamy and you can make them ahead of time if you know you are going to be busy or gone.

I also love our Skillet Red Potatoes. The edges get a little crispy, and the insides are so soft and fully of flavor.

I also serve my ribs with a good cooked carrot recipe. One of my favorites is our Orange Glazed Carrots. They have a little bit of a flavor punch to them, that you will love.
