  • 3 lbs of elk ribs (or what fits in your slow cooker)
  • 2 cups beef stock
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 drops liquid smoke
  • 1 dash Worcestershire sauce
  • ⅓ cup barbecue sauce
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp ground mustard
  • 2 tbsp red wine
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Thaw ribs. Cut ribs of 2-3 to fit into slow cooker.

Stir remaining 11 ingredients into warmed beef stock. Taste and add any other spices that you’d like.

Pour liquid mixture over elk ribs in slow cooker.

Cook on low for 8 hours (slower and longer cook time makes for more tender ribs).
