Beef or pork spareribs (7-8 lbs.)
1 liter of Dr Pepper
2 tsp. liquid smoke
4 or more garlic cloves, smashed
1 onion, quartered
your favorite BBQ sauce
Put spareribs in large pot or Dutch oven. Cover with Dr Pepper, so that all ribs are completely covered. Add liquid smoke (a few shakes), garlic cloves to taste, and onion. Bring to boil, then simmer until ribs are tender. (About 1 hour.)
Take ribs out of liquid and place in shallow pan, pour BBQ sauce over all the ribs.
Place in a 350 oven and bake until desired degree of doneness. (About 1 hour.)
The Dr Pepper adds a sweet taste to the ribs and they are very moist and tender. This recipe can also be used for ribs on the grill. Doubles well.
