Slow Cooker Pork Riblets Dinner for Two

 Pork Ribs and Veggies in the Slow Cooker

Cook pork ribs in the slow cooker for an easy dinner. Add vegetables on top, and you have a complete meal. It’s a one-pot meal and dinner for two that is cooked while you’re busy all day and ready for eating when you walk in the door.

Slow Cooker Pork Riblets

Slow Cooker Pork Riblets recipe is literally a fall-off-the-bones kind of meat. The riblets were very tender. I noticed bones I hadn’t been aware of before when cooking ribs. They are circular and flat. But there’s no need to worry about bones with this meat that’s left in the slow cooker all day. Juicy. Tasty. Mouth watering riblets.

Add any kind of vegetables you want with the pork dinner. Many times I cook veggies in the slow cooker inside foil placed on top of the meat. Usually, I seal the foil to keep the steam inside. This time, however, I left the foil open. Of course, the lid was closed and there wasn’t any need to worry about the steam escaping the crock. I’ve also placed potatoes, onions, and carrots in with the meat. It’s all a matter of preference.

Course Main Course
Cuisine American


  • 2 packages Pork Riblets
  • 2 tablespoons Six Seasonings herbs and spices This is the seasoning I use, but you can use any herb and spice blend you prefer.
  • 2 teaspoons Mesquite seasoning
  • 4 each Red potatoes
  • 1/2 head Cabbage
  • 2 tablespoons Butter


  1. Season both sides of the riblets with one of the tablespoons of herb and spice blend.

  2. Place ribs into the bottom of the slow cooker.

  3. Place foil on top of the meat, pressing down and forming into the shape of a bowl.

  4. Cut the potatoes and cabbage into quarters and place them on the foil, adding the seasoning and butter (cut into small pieces and placed around the potatoes and cabbage).

  5. Cook on high for 8 hours.

  6. If you don't want your riblets to literally fall apart, then try cooking the ribs longer on low, perhaps for 10 or 11 hours.

Save any leftover rib meat, and make another meal. Here are a few suggestions of what you could make with the leftovers:

  • chili
  • open-faced sandwiches
  • burritos
  • tacos
  • soup
  • nachos
