Finger-Lickin’ Baby Back Ribs.
Any rib lovers out there?
We decided on ribs for our Super Bowl Sunday meal this past Sunday. They are great football feasting food!
Hubby learned a great way to make them.
The secret to making them tender and fall-off-the-bone wonderful is in boiling them first in Coca-Cola.
After boiling them for a couple hours, you drain them, put them in a container, drench with your favorite barbecue sauce, cover tightly, and marinade overnight.
When you are ready to eat them, you simply throw them on the grill, or in our case, Hubby likes to throw them in our Pit Barrel Cooker and smoke them a bit. In a half hour, you have the most amazing tender, fall-off-the bone, juicy pork ribs you’ve ever eaten.
I like to add a little more sauce on when I eat mine. (I’m a little saucier than Hubby!)
I know many folks have their own way of making ribs with varying techniques – dry rubs, wet sauces, marinades, etc., but I have not found a way I like better than this simple full-proof recipe.
Hope you’ll give it a try and let me know.
Finger-Lickin' Baby Back Ribs
- 1 rack baby back pork ribs
- 3-4 cans Coca-Cola (or enough to cover ribs in a pot)
- 1/2 bottle Sweet Baby Ray’s Barbecue Sauce (or your favorite)
Cut ribs into 4 pieces. Put in large pot. Pour Coca-Cola over ribs until they are completely covered. Put lid on pot, and bring to boil. Reduce heat, and simmer about an hour or so until they are fully cooked.
Remove ribs from pot, and discard Coca-Cola. Place ribs in airtight container. Cover with barbecue sauce and lid. Marinade overnight or for at least 6-8 hours.
A half hour before ready to serve, place on grill or in Pit Barrel Cooker and grill/heat through.
Serve with additional barbecue sauce if desired.
Cheers & Hugs,
