This is one of my favorite southern meals. Maybe it’s because I’m a Georgia girl at heart. Southern comfort food has been a staple of my family meals for as long as I can remember.
I made a great cornbread to go with the ribs (yes it’s sweet which is not traditional southern cornbread). The cornbread recipe is courtesy of Kittencal who was on Recipezaar and is now at Kittencal’s Kitchen.
There is nothing I would change about this meal. It was perfect.
Whisk all the sauce ingredients together in a medium sauce pan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes. This will reduce the sauce to about 2 cups. Set aside. This sauce can be made ahead and kept in the refrigerator.
Slow Cooked Ribs
- 1 recipe for Root Beer BBQ sauce (above)
- 2-4 pounds baby back ribs (pork ribs)
- Salt and pepper
Remove fatty membrane from the underside of the ribs. Rub the meat with salt and pepper. Pour 1/2 of the sauce into the bottom of the slow cooker (aka the crock pot). Add ribs and coat with remaining sauce.
Cook on low setting for 6-7 hours.
