Oh goodness I can not tell you how tender and tasty these Slow Cooker Ribs with Coca-Cola are. Words just can not explain. I have been making many slow cooker meals lately as they are so simple. I had never tried making ribs in the crock-pot and I was a bit nervous about doing so. Our family loves ribs but, they can be quite expensive to feed this whole family. Last week I seen a great deal on a few racks of baby backs at the grocery and figured they would be a good snack for us in the evening. I couldn’t pass up the deal. I had a relative let me know that soaking pork ribs in Coke made the pork taste wonderful and also made the ribs so tender. I was ready to give it a try.
Slow Cooker Ribs with Coca-Cola
Making ribs always seems like such a long process either on the grill or in the oven. I usually let the hubby make them as I hate dealing with the long process, ha ha! With this quick and easy Coca-Cola Crock-Pot recipe, I really didn’t mind making this batch. Toss everything in and let it cook. Pretty simple.
1 rack Pork Baby Back Ribs
1 can Coca-Cola
Salt and Pepper
1/2 bottle Barbecue Sauce
Salt and pepper ribs on both sides.
Wrap ribs around outside of crock pot.
Pour Coke over ribs and cook on low for 8-10 hours.
Cover a oven safe pan with aluminum foil.
The meat will be falling off the bones, so carefully transfer the ribs to the foil lined pan (meaty side up).
Cover ribs with barbecue sauce and place under broiler until sauce starts to sizzle and caramelize.
Remove from oven and serve.
I really liked how this recipe I tossed together is so simple. The flavor from the Coke and BBQ Sauce together is so yummy. The ribs were so tender and full of flavor. Clean up was a breeze. So this recipe is an all around keeper. I now do not have to wait for hubby to cook ribs for us (that could be a good and bad thing, ha ha).
