Cola Short Ribs

Found this recipe at Mr. Food.  Pretty good!  The only things I changed were that I couldn’t find short ribs with the bone; I found beef country ribs and used them instead plus I minced fresh garlic rather than use garlic powder.  The original recipe called for the ribs to cook on the stove top; I popped them into my casserole dish (which is similar to this one from Le Creuset) but my mom got it for me from QVC.


3 pounds country ribs, boneless

salt and pepper

2 garlic cloves, minced

3 tbsp. canola oil

one 12-oz. bottle of Pepsi Cola (not diet!)

one 12-oz. bottle of chili sauce

2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce

2 tbsp. hot pepper sauce

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Place ribs along with salt, pepper and garlic in plastic bag.  Shake bag around and squeeze gently so that ribs are covered with seasonings.

Place canola oil in casserole pot, on high heat.  When oil begins to shimmer, add ribs.

While they brown, combine wet ingredients in a large bowl.  When you pour in the pop, it bubbles up really pretty.

Stir well.

Still bubbly!  As soon as the ribs are browned on all sides, slowly pour in the cola mixture.

Cover the casserole tightly and pop into the oven for an hour.  At the end of the first hour, flip ribs around and baste any pieces that aren’t covered.

Bake for one more hour.  At the end of the second hour, remove them from the casserole and place in serving dish to rest for five minutes.

They were so MOIST, they were falling apart!  I fixed roasted asparagus and buttery potatoes with them.
