“I copied this recipe from the internet quite some time ago and just now getting around to trying it. While I prefer to grill my ribs outside, the weather today wasn't cooperating so we gave this one a shot. We thought the sauce was pretty tasty and even though we prefer our ribs off the grill, this is a great recipe for the crock pot.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix root beer, ketchup, orange juice, molasses, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, onion, paprika, ginger and hot sauce in a medium sauce pan. Whisk in 2 tbsp cornstarch and bring to a boil. Simmer a few minutes until thickened slightly.
  2. Remove fatty membrane from underside of ribs and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Place ribs in crock pot (you may have to cut each rack in half so they will fit) and cover with sauce. Cook on low for 4-5 hours. Move ribs around every hour or so, so they all have a turn being submerged in the sauce.
