I found this recipe at


  • 3 1/2 lb pork loin back ribs
  • 1/4 C packed brown sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 3 TBS liquid smoke
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1/2 C cola
  • 1 1/2 C barbecue sauce


Step 1

1. Spray inside of 4- to 5-quart slow cooker with cooking spray.

Step 2

2. Remove inner skin from ribs. Mix brown sugar, salt, pepper, liquid smoke and garlic; rub mixture into ribs. Cut ribs into 4-inch pieces. Layers ribs and onion in slow cooker. Pour cola over ribs.

Step 3

3. Cover and cook on low heat setting 8 to 9 hours or until tender. Remove ribs from slow cooker. Drain and discard liquid.

Step 4

4. Pour barbecue sauce into shallow bowl. Dip ribs into sauce. Place ribs in slow cooker. Pour any remaining sauce over ribs. Cover and cook on low heat setting 1 hour. Note: This recipe was tested in slow cookers with heating elements in the side and bottom of the cooker, not in cookers that stand only on a heated base. For slow cookers with just a heated base, follow the manufacturer’s directions for layering ingredients and choosing a temperature.
