Ingredients

  • 2 pounds pork ribs
  • 18 ounces root beer
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder

Preparation

  1. Place one layer of pork ribs in an oval slow cooker. Mince the garlic. Sprinkle garlic and 1 teaspoon onion powder over the ribs.
  2. Place a second layer of ribs on top of first layer. Sprinkle with the remaining onion powder.
  3. Pour root beer over ribs to cover.
  4. Turn slow cooker on low setting and cook for 8-12 hours until ribs are tender.

Helpful hints

  • Adjust root beer to cover meat but do not fill slow cooker more than 2/3 full.
  • Read ingredients and select a root beer that does not contain phosphate additives.
  • Instead of ribs you can substitute a Boston butt or pork shoulder roast. Sprinkle garlic and onion powder on meat and cover completely with root beer before cooking in slow cooker. Shred cooked meat.
  • Serve ribs or roast with coleslaw and rolls
