These country back ribs could not have turned out with any more ease or any more flavor!! One of my sons had tipped me off to pouring a can of root beer over a pork roast and slow cooking for 6 hours. I thought it would translate nicely to back ribs so I tried it today. In the words of one of my daughter-in-laws it is a "do again".
Ingredients for slow cooked BBQ Country Back Ribs:
4 meaty country back ribs
1 can Root Beer
1 jar your favorite BBQ sauce
Place ribs in the slow cooker and turn onto high for 6 hours or low for 8-10.
Pour a can of Root Beer over all and let this simmer all day. After 6 hours drain off all of the liquid. Return the meat to the cooker and cover with the bottled BBQ sauce. Reheat over low until serving time.
We served with a side of fresh cooked green beans, cottage cheese, and sliced tomatoes. Yield 4 servings.
