BBQ Ribs

This is an absolute family favorite that my friend Jeni shared with me many moons ago. We use it at least once a month because it's easy and delicious. We love to serve it with biscuits, corn on the cob, potato salad and baked beans...even in the middle of the winter. For more excellent slow cooker recipes, check out Sandra's Slow Cookin' Thursday!

BBQ Ribs

3 1/2 lbs. pork loin back ribs (if I'm feeding a crowd, I'll use country style ribs because they have more meat on them)
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 tsp. pepper
3 Tbsp. liquid smoke
2 cloves pressed garlic
1 tsp. salt
1 medium onion, sliced
1/2 cup cola or water
1 1/2 cup favorite BBQ sauce

Spray inside of your crockpot with cooking spray or put liner inside. Mix brown sugar, pepper, liquid smoke, garlic and salt; rub into ribs. If using back ribs, cut into 4 inch pieces. Layer ribs and onion into pot. Pour cola over ribs. Cover and cook on low setting for 8-9 hours or until tender. Dip ribs and discard liquid and onion. Dip ribs into BBQ sauce and then put them back into crockpot. Pour remaining BBQ sauce over ribs. Cover and cook on low setting for 1 more hour.

Yummy!! Troy is not a big rib fan, but my boys recently discovered that they loved them. This recipe might just convert him over to the dark side!!

I can harldy wait to try this recipe! I have never once made a successful rib dinner (always too chewy). I'd already told my hubby I wasn't even going to bother trying anymore...but I will. I think this may be my winner! :-)
