Boneless Pork Ribs in the Slow Cooker Cooked in an Orange Barbecue Sauce



  • Boneless pork ribs (I used two packages)
  • 1 large yellow onion, sliced
  • 1 large fennel bulb, sliced (leaves included)
  • 1 lemon, zest and juice
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 5 sprigs of thyme, tied in a bundle
  • 1 bottle barbecue sauce (whatever type you choose, I chose sweet honey)
  • 1 cup orange marmalade


1) Lay onions and fennel in slow cooker. Add ribs, kosher salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Zest the lemon over the ribs and add the juice. Include the lemon halves in the slow cooker. Add thyme bundle.

2) Mix barbecue sauce and orange marmalade and pour over ribs.

3) Set slow cooker for 4 hours on high.
