Sweet and Sour Short Ribs

Tis' the season for crock pots! Well technically it's one appliance we use year round, but fall seems to be one season we look forward to serving up that first cozy bowl of soup or maybe even these ribs. We're back to busy nights and my crock pot gets a little more use during that time.

I tried out this recipe last week, not knowing how it might turn out, just crossing my fingers it'd be really tasty. It was, the kids ate really well that night and I was one happy mama! I've learned it's the little things. Agree?

We all love meals that you can literally just dump into the crock pot and go off to work or about your day. This is another one of those. You'll taste just enough sweetness from the cola and brown sugar but it's not overwhelming. I loved adding my baked beans to the pot, that takes care of one side dish right there. Oh and the meat itself is so tender and falls right off the bone. I love that!  I used short ribs but I'm sure boneless beef or pork ribs would work just as well. The whole family is sure to love these.

Sweet and Sour Short Ribs

3 lbs. short ribs
12 oz. can Pepsi (coke or dr. pepper would work too)
28 oz. can baked beans
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp paprika

Place ribs in crock pot. In a bowl, combine baked beans with cola, brown sugar and spices. Pour over ribs, cover and cook on low for 7 hours. When ready to serve drain liquid and serve ribs with beans.
