Instructions

  1. Put the ribs in the slow cooker and top with salt and pepper.
  2. Cook on low for 7-8 hours.

  3. While the ribs are cooking make your bbq sauce.
  4. Add the McDonalds BBQ Sauce ingredients into a saucepan and cook on low for 15-18 minutes or until sauce is thickened enough to coat a spoon and leave a line when you swipe your finger across the spoon.

  5. When ribs are done remove them from the slow cooker and put them onto a sheet pan.
  6. Cover with bbq sauce.
  7. Broil for 1-2 minutes on the top shelf of your oven.

  8. Spread butter on your hoagie rolls and toast.
  9. Slide the bones out of your ribs (they should come right out with a little twisting).
  10. Use 1/4 of the ribs on each hoagie, then top each one with three pickles and a sprinkling of onion.
