Slow Cooker Raspberry-Chipotle Baby Back Ribs

Home » Slow Cooker Raspberry-Chipotle Baby Back Ribs

Raspberries are one of my favorite summer treats. My bushes are full! Combine raspberries with short ribs and you’ve got yourself a delicious summer meal. Brush homemade raspberry chili sauce over meaty, tender baby back ribs. It’s all cooked in the slow cooker, so it couldn’t be easier. I’ve written about my recipe for crockpot ribs before and included my recipe in this recipe. Seriously, those ribs are going to fall off the stinky bones so you can shove them into your gluttonous face faster. You’re welcome. Time to enjoy it before the good summer fades away!

  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add sweet onion and sauté for about 5 minutes. Add garlic and sauté for another 60 seconds.

Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 10 minutes.
