Rockin' Ribs made with classic Coke! #FamilyClassics

 So do you like Ribs?  I never use to like them so I never made them.  My husband has ALWAYS loved ribs and would order them when we would dine at a few of his favorite restaurants. I LOVED watching him get into his ribs, all saucy and messing, eating everything off of the bones! As much as I loved watching him, I always refused to eat them.  I am sure I ate them as a kid and a bad memory stuck in my head.  Have you ever had that happen to you?  Does it affect the way you cook for your family?  It sure does for me!

Anyhow, about 8 years ago, I decided to make my husband ribs for his birthday.  I always make my family whatever they want for their Birthday Dinner or we all go out to their restaurant of choice.  For some reason I had it in my mind to make ribs.  I looked through many recipe books searching for something that seemed tasty. I ended up pulling together a few recipes and decided that I would make him the best ribs ever.  This was the year that I also made him an ice cream cake.  I was on a roll that year!

I cooked the ribs in the crock pot.  The downside of this was that I was home all day and I had to SMELL the ribs all day long.  The positive side of this is that they smelled so good, I could not wait to taste them for myself.  I did taste them before serving and they were....AWESOME!  I converted myself into being a rib eater.  My husband and kids all love this recipe and so do anyone else we make them for or share the recipe with.  I'm convinced that cooking with LOVE and Coca-Cola® did the trick!  Try 'em and let me know what you think!

BEST RIBS EVER Rockin' Ribs, quick and easy (crock pot)  (CLICK for a printable copy)

3 slabs of Pork Loin Back Ribs
1 onions, sliced thinly
1 liter Coca-Cola®
1 cup brown sugar
6 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 container of liquid smoke
BBQ Sauce

Mix brown sugar, garlic and liquid smoke.  Cut rib rack into 3s. Spread on brown sugar mixture as you put in crock pot.  Between each rib add onions.  Do this for all the ribs and onions.  If you have any extra sugar mix then just dump it in crockpot.  Pour in Coca-Cola®.  Cover and cook 6-8 hours on high.  You'll know they are done because they will be super tender.

Note:  I think that the BBQ sauce is a very important part of the ribs.  We ALWAYS use Sweet Baby Rays! I think they sell this sauce all over the place!
