Saucy Country Ribs

Serves: 6

3 lbs. country-style pork ribs
3 c. cola soda (or 2 cans)
1 c. ketchup
1 T. dried minced onion
1/4 t. garlic powder

In a crock pot, put all ingredients except meat; mix until smooth. Trim fat from the ribs. Place in
crock pot. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours.

Tips: I found country pork ribs on sale for 99¢/lb. so I wanted to find something good to do with them. I also found a 2-liter of store brand cola on sale for 83¢ so it made this whole meal very affordable. The soda and ketchup mixture taste a bit like barbecue sauce just thinner. I meant to try to thicken the sauce but I forgot. If you want to try, I suggest mixing 2 T. cornstarch with 2T. cold water then mixing it into the crock pot about an hour before you are ready to eat. Serve this with some homegrown veggies and your meal is ready! I also shared this recipe at Smockity Frocks' What's in Your Crockpot?.
