Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Absolutely outstanding! Even my picky eater son loved these ribs. Can't wait to make them again.

Goodness, I don't understand why people have to get so nasty. Just explain to the person that Mr. Food does have a Diabetic site also that might be helpful to her. It's that easy folks!!

looks good I will try and make it


I am looking for the recipe you featured about 2 weeks ago - it included a can of cola

was it the cola pot roast?

Going to make this tomorrow

I make it a bit easier on myself - I just use my favorite bottle bbq sauce. I just pan brown the ribs briefly while heating up the crock pot. Pour enough sauce on the bottom of the crock to just cover - place ribs on top - cover with a large sliced/seperated onion and the rest of the sauce and let it go. Have never had 'em come out tough - and taste like bbq! Only problem is they get so tender they lose their bones! When there are leftovers, I like to shred the meat and serve on toasted buns! Guess I better add some ribs to my list I even like this with the "Texas boneless ribs".

Sounds great, but, I want to see a picture of it.

These are the worst tasting ribs I have ever had, what a waste of meat. It tasted like you poured spagetti sauce over the ribs. Sorry this is coming out of my recipe file.

Greetings. I did not have a 4 qt crockpot so I used a 6 qt crockpot. Other than that, I followed the recipe verbatim. The 475 degrees F for 30 minutes was WAY too much. The ribs were like wang leather (way over-cooked). My wife also indicated that it needs a 14 1/2 oz can of dice tomatoes, too. It was pretty tasty, but the tomatoes would have really helped the dish, and in the future, I will use 375 degrees F for 30 minutes, or 10 to 15 minutes at 475 degrees F. Will let you know which way I alter it and the end results. Okay?

Where did the 475 come from?

I really need the nutritional value of your recipes as I am diabetic and follow Weight Watchers plan. You provide awesome recipes but without the nutritional value, I really can not take advantage of the recipes. Thanks for caring!


Did we get out of the bed on the wrong side today?

HI Mr Food, I make something like this but with a pot roast lots of onions and a bottle of beer braizing the beef first in a little of olive oil, with salt and pepper.cook until tender. i love your recipes. thank you so much .
