Coca-Cola Ribs & BBQ Sauce

I've created recipes using my favorite wake up beverage for beans and roast beef so I wanted to try using it for ribs.  Not only just marinating the ribs in Coke, but also creating a bbq sauce to baste them with.








Coca-Cola Ribs & BBQ Sauce

Cut ribs into 4 rib pieces.  Place in a large plastic bag that seals and add in one can of Coca-Cola.  Marinate overnight or for at least 8 hours.  Place ribs in a crock pot for 2 hours with juices from bag and heat on medium high.  Remove from crock pot and grill for about 15 minutes, basting with the BBQ sauce below.


Coca-Cola BBQ Sauce

1/2 cup Coca-Cola
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1 tbsp chili powder
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/4 tsp ground mustard

Combine all of the ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer.  Cook until it thickens.
