Rachel from The Stay at Home Chef practically says, "Blasphemy!" to that hypothetical, with her ever-so-simple instructional on slow cooker ribs.
Watch the video above and get (slow) cookin'!

Just follow Rachel's instructions and pay attention to the subtle secrets like removing the rind or caramelizing the barbecue sauce with your oven's broil setting.
