Making slow cooker Coca-Cola ribs is a delicious way to prepare tender, flavorful ribs. Here’s a basic recipe to get you started:


  • 1 rack of pork baby back ribs
  • 1 can (12 ounces) Coca Cola (or any cola of your choice)
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce (use your favorite brand)
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Prep the Ribs:
    • Remove the membrane from the back of the ribs (this helps the flavors penetrate better).
    • Season the ribs with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  2. Slow Cooker Setup:
    • Pour the Coca-Cola into the slow cooker.
    • Place the seasoned ribs into the slow cooker, meaty side facing outward.
  3. Cooking:
    • Cover the slow cooker and cook on low heat for 6-8 hours (or until the ribs are tender and cooked through).
  4. Finishing Touches:
    • About 30 minutes before the ribs are done, mix the BBQ sauce and Worcestershire sauce.
    • Brush the ribs generously with the BBQ sauce mixture.
  5. Broiling (Optional):
    • If you prefer a caramelized finish, transfer the ribs to a baking sheet.
    • Broil the ribs in the oven for a few minutes until the sauce is bubbly and caramelized.
  6. Serve:
    • Cut the ribs into individual portions and serve with extra BBQ sauce on the side.

This recipe is great for those who enjoy sweet and savory flavors. The cola helps tenderize the meat while adding a subtle sweetness to the dish. Adjust the seasoning and BBQ sauce according to your taste preferences. Enjoy your delicious slow cooker Coca-Cola ribs!
