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.
