  • 1 cup gluten-free hickory barbecue sauce
  • 1⁄2 cup orange marmalade
  • 1⁄2 cup water
  • 3 lbs. beef Western ribs


  • Add the barbecue sauce, marmalade, and water to greased 6-quart slow cooker. Stir to mix.
  • Add the ribs, ladling some of the sauce over the ribs. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.
  • To thicken the sauce, use a slotted spoon to remove the meat and bones; cover and keep warm. Skim any fat from the sauce in the cooker; increase the heat setting to high and cook uncovered for 15 minutes or until the sauce is reduced and coats the back of a spoon.
