EZ BBQ ribs falling off the bonePage 1 of 4    (1, 2, 3, 4)
Here is a method for ribs from a Detroit rib joint!! So easy, yet the ribs come out falling off the bone, moist meat, finger lickin' good!

Baby back ribs, remove the skin on the underside of the ribs

Place in a deep baking pan, pour 1/2 can Coca cola over the ribs, cover with aluminum foil with vent slits.

Bake at 325 to 350 degrees for 2 hrs, remove and drain off liquid, apply sauce and return to oven for 15 min more, uncovered.

Best and easiest way to make ribs, great for football season!!

Enjoy

The Coke tenderizes and keeps moisture in the meat. You won't taste any of the Coke at all after cooking either. I like a sweet BBQ sauce and a favorite is "Sweet Baby Rays" but I also sprinkle brown sugar on after the sauce is on and then stick it into the oven for the last 15 min.....your family and friends will rave about this!

...There have been 13 previous threads started on how to cook ribs. There are a thousand different ways to cook ribs..and most of them are pretty good. This recipe focus's on the use of the fructose and water in the soda. It's a fairly common idea, even though some people don't believe you should "steam" ribs...They're really proud of their BBQ talents. If you want to vary this recipe..you can actually dry rub the outside of the ribs...stick them in a piece of foil with a piece of ice for moisture..and seal them up...then cook them for 2.5 hours at 300 degrees before whipping them onto a broiler pan or the grill for the saucing and carmelizing...

there is also the tenderizing ability of the Coke to consider, not just the sugar and water combination, it has been said that Coke will degrease your cement driveway,,,,go figure!

..Right..Coke has Phosphoric acid added to it...That's the same acid they use in Naval Jelly to remove rust...so you're darn tootin' it will probably help tenderize the rib.

No, it more like baking them although they will get browned on top. You will be surprised how tender and most they become, literally can pull the bones out clean!

..I'm not sure I can go into the probability of phosphoric acid acting on a piece of tissue any more...it's been 30 years since my last Chemistry class..LOL. But I do know that to have a reaction between two compounds...a fairly precise set of conditions have to be met. Whether Phosphoric Acid will react with a stomach lining is beyond my capabilities any more...LOL.

Vinny...the beauty of this method...is the ability to hold those ribs until the last minute to sauce them. The moist heat keeps them tender...so tender in fact..that at times they'll fall apart if you try to handle them too much. I usually grab two tongs..and reach into the ribs from opposite ends to support the entire thing when placing them on a rack for saucing and carmelizing....but the OP just goes ahead and does it in the same pan.....limiting the risk of the ribs falling apart.

I intend to try your recipe method. For those wondering about the phosphoric acid (present in most sodas) it isnt much of a threat to the average persons stomach but long term frequent ingestion can pose problems with bone density and strength since it ties up calcium. Of more long-term concern is consumption of fructose and high-fructose corn syrup (the sweetner in most drinks, including sports drinks). Recent studies have proven that fructose is rapidly converted to fat ( unlike some other sugars such as glucose). That why die-hard soda drinkers usually pack a flabby spare tire. The occasional use of Coke, Pepsi, or Root Beer, or other sodas to make delicious tender ribs poses no threat at all.

OOOh in some places that would be considered "alcohol abuse", should save the beer for when the ribs are done! javascript:smilie('')

This method is intended for the cooks who don't have or want to bother with a smoker, grill or other labor intensive method of cooking ribs. It make the tenderest and juicy meats you will ever have.

Has anyone else noticed that the coke tends to make any fat on the meat really sticky and kind of revolting? Otherwise they taste great! LOL

ribs are very versatile...i'm sure everyone that has cooked ribs has their own unique way...all good...
i parboil mine first...with S&P, garlic, celery,onions, bay leaves, a little chick soup base...whatever else tickles your fancy...
boil til tender then do them either on the q or in the oven

RIBS Cooked in Myer's Rum
Posted: 4/13/2009 4:10:18 PM
..I like Liquid Smoke ..but be careful with it. It is extremely concentrated, and I have been known to just dip a spoon in it and then stir whatever I'm flavoring until I get it "smoky" enough. Measuring it is easy enough if you're making a very large dish....but take your time, and mix it to taste.
