Helpful hints

  • Adjust root beer to cover meat but do not fill slow cooker more than 2/3 full.
  • Read ingredients and select a root beer that does not contain phosphate additives.
  • Instead of ribs you can substitute a Boston butt or pork shoulder roast. Sprinkle garlic and onion powder on meat and cover completely with root beer before cooking in slow cooker. Shred cooked meat.
  • Serve ribs or roast with coleslaw and rolls
