When making ribs, I have to get the seal of approval from my husband as it is his favorite dish. There are 2 ways you can make Crock Pot Coca-Cola Baby Back Ribs and both versions are a hit in our household. I mean you really can’t go wrong either way as the crock pot does all or most of the work for you. It just depends on how you like your ribs either caramelized or not and how much time you have to prepare them.Β  And either way has the meat fallen off the bone and melt in your mouth. Yum! Yum!

      My personal favorite for sweet ribs is Sweet Baby Ray’s. If you like more of a bite to it, Jack Daniel’s BBQ Sauce (spicy). They’re both excellent! 😊

    Do they go in oven for 8-10 or on hob? And when do you use the sugar?

    Hey Alison! Trying to figure out when to use the brown sugar?? Don’t see that step in either sets of directions. Thanks!

    Personally I would mix the brown sugar with the other sauce ingredients. But really it shouldn’t matter whether you do it that way or just put the brown sugar on the meat. After cooking 8-10 hours it should all come together anyway.

    I made these over the weekend, and they were good, but it didn’t take ANYWHERE near the 8-10 hours in the crockpot on low. (I made two batches, each in it’s own crockpot). Both crocks had them cooked and ready in 4.5 hours! I’m so glad I checked mid-stream, or those poor ribs would have been dry as dust.

      Patricia,
      The reason your ribs were done in half the time is because you used actual Baby Back Ribs and a 12 oz. Coca-Cola. In the pix posted for each step, one can clearly see that a 2 ltr. Bottle Coca-Cola was used for Original Pork Back Ribs, NOT Baby Back and why the cook time was twice as long. Regular Pork Back Ribs take twice as long to cook because the meat is thicker, less tender and the actual bones are harder than Baby Back Ribs. The brown sugar should have been mixed with the bbq sauce before adding the Coca-Cola.
      The Sodium Bicarbonate & The Effervescence of the Carbon Dioxide in the Coca-Cola is what tenderizes the meat and pulls the natural juices from the bone marrow i to the meat.
      The Caramel in the Coca-Cola and the Brown Sugar in the sauce mixture is what brings out the caramelization when broiling

    Where does the 1/4c of brown sugar come in?

      I am not sure what you mean. If you are talking on where to get it, you can find brown sugar at the grocery store in the baking aisle and measure 1/4 cup. Hope that helps!

    I know where to find brown sugar in the grocery store. I also see it in your picture and see it listed in the ingredients. I CANNOT find it in either of your listed instructions. I am assuming this is what others are referring to also.

    I’m confused! The recipe is called baby back ribs, it calls for baby back ribs, but Trisha wrote its Original Pork back ribs…which is it?
