Tantalizing Tuesday- Cola Barbecue Ribs!

A classic summertime meal must include barbecue ribs.  Barbecue ribs is not just a summertime treat with our family; we make them year round, since Mr. DD will grill in the winter.

Coca Cola Barbeque Ribs

 

We have a local restaurant that serves some really tasty ribs.  We asked our server how they make them and he stated that they marinate them in Coca Cola.  I went searching on the internet for Coca Cola barbecue rib recipes and came across this one from Framed Cooks. I changed a few of the measurements and used everything in the recipe.

Total time:
Serves: 10
Ingredients
  • 4 lbs Pork Ribs
  • 3 cups Coca-Cola
  • 3 cups Ketchup
  • 1 cup Packed Dark Brown Sugar
  • 6 tablespoons Chili Powder
  • 2 tablespoons Ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons Dry mustard
  • 1/2 tablespoons Ground cinnamon
Instructions
  1. Place the ribs to a large non-reactive glass or ceramic dish pour 2 cups of Coca-Cola over them. Let the ribs marinate overnight covered tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerated.
  2. Barbecue Sauce: Pour the remaining 1 cup of cola into a blender and add the ketchup, brown sugar, chili powder, pepper, dry mustard, and cinnamon. Mix until smooth and well blended. Place the ribs in a roasting pan that has been coated with cooking spray, brush with the sauce, and roast covered in a 225 oven for about 2 1/2 hours until very tender. (Can be done the day before. )
  3. Grill over low heat, basting with the uncooked sauce until the outside is crispy, about 10-15 minutes. Meanwhile simmer the unused sauce for about 20 minute until a little thick.

    These ribs sound delicious! We make ribs year round here too but in the winter, I usually make them in the oven. Pinning this and I will definitely have to get the family together and try them out. My mom makes hers by boiling them in beer first but I don’t like them that way.. I bet this is a lot better :)
