What's for Dinner? Slow Cooker Baby Back Ribs

I have never been a big fan of ribs.  To be quite honest, I hate eating meat off the bone.  It grosses me out.  But, my husband loves ribs and I also realize that we have to eat more than just chicken.  So, when I found this recipe I had to try it.  One word...AMAZING!  The meat literally fell off the bone it was so tender.  Try it, you won't be disappointed.
