I'll bake frozen french fries to serve with the ribs and add a quick fruit or veggie salad. Or serve with rice & beans. My husband likes to take the meat off and make kind of a pulled pork sandwich. Great for evenings when everyone is on a different schedule!

Ingredients

  • 1 Rack of pork baby back ribs
  • 1/2 Cup Brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Garlic powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Pepper
  • 6 Ounces Cola (Coke or Dr. Pepper work well)
  • BBQ sauce, optional

Directions

  1. Step One

    Mix the brown sugar, garlic powder, and pepper. Rub over the ribs.

  2. Step Two

    Place ribs in slow cooker. Pour in the cola.

  3. Step Three

    Cook on low 8-9 hours.

  4. Step Four

    For the last hour of cooking, add 1/2 C BBQ sauce, or just hold and serve on the side.

    These are great!!! I am one who loves grill marks so I took mine out of the slow cooker and put them on my pit (on high) for just a minute to get the grill marks. I added just a touch more BBQ sauce. These are better than ANY BBQ joint I have ever been to (and I live in TX and we are known for BBQ). Totally would recommend these. YUM!

    I had to cut the rack to fit them in the crock. I see you indicated to still only use 6 oz of coke but then it doesn’t cover the ribs. Is that ok or will they dry out?

    I quit drinking soda back in 2009, so I just used water instead and they turned out better than at a restaurant. Meat was tender and juicy and falling off the bone. Yummy!

    Michelle..you would need to triple the rest of the ingredients then, too. I’m not sure if you can get 3 racks of ribs in your crock with the lid on though. You can cut them to fit, but you might have to make them in 2 slow cookers. You don’t want to overfill the crock because it doesn’t cook as well. It’s suppose to be between 2/3-3/4 full. ENJOY! and Happy Crockin’, girl!

    I am planning on making this today and have alittle over 3lbs of country style ribs – can I use same amount of ingredients you have listed in the receipe or do I need to increase?

    Yes Allison! You can cut the cook time in half if you cook them on high instead of low.

  14. allison

    question! I’m planning on making this recipe today, but i put them in the crock pot a little late, could I cook them on different temps for different times to get them done in time??

  15. Lori S.

    I made this yesterday and couldn’t wait to hop and here and give it a rave review! These were great and oh so easy. I cut them in single rib pcs, put the rub on them and put in the fridge the night before so I didn’t have to worry about doing that before going to work. Then in the crock with some Dt. Pepsi in the morning, and a little bbq sauce when I got home. The entire family loved them and I loved that I didn’t have to eat off the bone – because the meat fell right off! DELISH! This is a keeper for sure!!

    You go girl! Sounds like your house is happy, Cyndy. I love ribs in the summer too, but not standing over a hot grill. Happy Crockin’ to ya!

  17. Cyndy

    This turned out perfectly! I added liquid smoke to give it a more grilled flavor, and we had the BBQ sauce on the side. Happy sons & hubby!!

    This is our go-to recipe. I buy the ribs on sale for $3.99 / lb and there is just myself, hubby and 13 yo son so we will have a few left over for hubby and I for lunch the next day. I also take my ribs out at the end, smother in sauce and either grill them or bake in the oven to get that “sticky finger rib” texture from the sauce. The next day, we either eat them as ribs or pull the meat from the bones and make pulled pork sliders with it! Deeelish recipe!
