Dr. Pepper Slow Cooker Ribs

Dr. Pepper Ribs


Summer is coming to a close and BBQ season is almost over. That’s enough to make me shed a tear! But  these bad boys can be enjoyed year round! Yay!

They are super easy to make! And require just a little attention while cooking. After they are done cooking we like to throw them (and by throw I mean place as gently as possible) onto the BBQ to just a little crispiness to the outside!

Levi has a deep love of Dr. Pepper and so we were super excited to give this a try several years ago when we started experimenting with the slow cooker. They have been a staple ever since and quite often are found on the Sunday dinner roster. They are also great to share with friends at a small dinner party.

  • 6 country style ribs
  • 18 oz KC Masterpiece Hickory Brown Sugar barbecue sauce
  • 1 can Dr. Pepper
  • 1 tbsp Paprika
  • 1 tbsp Garlic salt
  • 2 tbsp Brown sugar

Mix the brown sugar, garlic salt and paprika in a bowl. Rub this mixture onto the ribs make sure you really get it in there so you don’t lose any flavor! *Optional……place the ribs in a pan with 1 tbsp of cooking oil. Quickly sear the ribs on all sides. This will help lock in the flavor and keep them nice and tender!

Pour the barbecue sauce and Dr. Pepper into your slow cooker. Then arrange the ribs in so that they are completely covered by the sauce.

Cook on high for 30 minutes and then low for 6 hours. Occasionally check on them and turn them over. Once they’re done carefully remove them with tongs. They will be very tender and practically fall apart!

Serve with your favorite summer sides and of course Dr. Pepper!
