Different, unusual way to prepare ribs. The soda pop tenderizes the meat. Untried recipe but they sound so good I just had to post them!

Top Review by Scott Keith

I've tried several recipes from Recipezaar for all sorts of dishes. Some great, some so-so, and some not to my tastes. This recipe inspired me to rate it and add comments. It was soooooooooooo good. The meat was not dry andwas very fork tender. I cooked them in the Dr. Pepper about 1 hour and 20 min before the oven part. I found a really good bbq sauce last month called Sweet Baby Ray's which is what I used. It's bottled sauce I got at Kroger. This is the 6th time I've used this sauce. I love it. They got a website in case anyone is curious : No I don't work for them but think it goes well with this OUTSTANDING recipe. Thank you sooooo much JoAnn for posting it. I highly reccomend this recipe.
