Saucy Barbecued Ribs

I was a little skeptical about making ribs in the slow cooker. But with how easy it seemed, figured, what the hey. Let me tell you, this where moist and tender, fall of the bone good. My kids could not stay out of them Had to put some away just so my husband had some when he got home. The only thing I didn't like was there wasn't enough in the end, no left overs :(. 

3 1/2 pounds pork loin baby ribs or pork spareribs
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 cup water
1 1/3 cups barbecue sauce

Spray the inside of a 5-6 quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Cut ribs into 2-3 rib portions. Place ribs in cooker. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Pour in water. Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours. Remove ribs from cooker; place in shallow pan. Drain and discard liquid from cooker. Brush both sides of the ribs with barbecue sauce. Return ribs to cooker. Pour any remaining sauce over ribs. Cover and cook about 1 hour or until ribs are glazed and sauce is desired consistency. 

*optional- Just before serving, sprinkle ribs with green onions.
