Coca Cola Ribs in the Crockpot

Jessie's photo!
Wednesdays are packed for us, so I always do a crockpot meal and you can be sure my family will insist that I make this one again!  My oldest gingersnap said it might be his new favorite dinner - I lost count of how many bones he had on his plate (something about boys and eating meat off the bone!).  The meat was so tender, juicy and flavorful.

3 1/2 pound pork loin back ribs (baby backs)
2 garlic cloves finely chopped
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 medium onion sliced
1/2 cup coke
1 1/2 cups bbq sauce of your choice

Spray inside of slow cooker. In a small bowl mix garlic, brown sugar, salt, and pepper. Rub mixture into ribs. Cut into 4 inch pieces. Layer ribs and onions in slow cooker. Pour coke over.

Cover and cook on low heat for 8 hours. Remove ribs, drain and discard liquid. Place ribs on med. heat grill. Brush with bbq sauce. Cover grill and cook for 15 minutes. When we cooked this the meat just fell apart so we put it in the broiler for about 5 minutes with the bbq sauce brushed on.


  1. So are you saying you skipped the grill step? You just took them out of the crock pot, brushed with BBQ sauce, and put it in the broiler?
    I have beef baby back ribs... I think it would work the same, right?

  2. Yes, that's what I'm sayin'!
