This recipe is amazing. I put spices for the ribs with salt and pepper then seared them on all sides, all this before adding them to the Slow Cooker. The searing made for a nice, caramelized crust on the outside of the ribs.

To have a good result cook it 7 hours on low. There was some grease so I simply absorbed it off the top using tongs and a paper towel.”
