Coke Pork Ribs With Easy Sides
Warning to all my cooking gals: this one will be messy. Plan your attire accordingly.
1. Start with a full apron for plenty of coverage. The country apron is perfect for this occasion.
2. A cute country scarf to tie it all together.
3. Wrap it up with a pair of custom books, so your country cookin’ has some flare!

(Oil/Vinegar Cole Slaw)

- 1 teaspoon of salt
- Salt and pepper to taste

Feel free to make bits and pieces of all of this. This just happened to be my Sunday meal. Feel free to experiment.
1. Cut your ribs into three to four rib slices and put in a large bowl. Cover your ribs with pineapple juice. Le the ribs sit for 12 hours. If you did not cover the ribs, as this takes a lot of pineapple juice, rotate the ribs three to four times. This will make your ribs super moist.
2. Preheat your oven to 300 degrees F
3. Mix together the sugar and spices to make the rub into a large bowl.
4. Put the ribs (I do one section at a time) into the bowl and make sure the rub is rubbed into all sides.
5. Make a two layer pocket of foil. Two on the bottom and two on the top. Make sure the ribs are in your pocket before crimping the edges. This helps the ribs to cook and keeps your pans cleaner!
6. Place on a baking sheet and cook for 2-2 1/2 hours. (Until the meat shrinks away from the bone!) This is when I start cooking the bbq sauce! It takes some time to reduce.
7. Remove from the oven and take the ribs to the grill. Add your sauce and let your sauce cook on to the ribs. Medium heat for about 5 minutes.
1. Mix all ingredients in a saucepan.
2. Bring to a boil.
3. Reduce heat to a low simmer (A few bubbles) and cook for 1-2 hours, stirring occasionally.
Oil and Vinegar Cole Slaw
1. Mix vinegar and sugar to help dissolve the sugar in a large bowl
2. Add oil to the vinegar and sugar
3. Add cabbage to the dressing.
4. Add salt and pepper to your taste
5. Toss with your fingers.
6. Let stand for 20 minutes.
7. Re-t0ss the Cole Slaw and serve!
1. Lay out ry a decent size of foil. (Enough to make a pouch for your asparagus)
2. Drizzle oil and salt on to your foil.
3. Place Asparagus on the foil.
4. Make your pouch and place the asparagus on the top grill.
5. Let the asparagus grill on medium heat for 10 to 15 minutes. Asparagus will be tender.
6. Make your hollandaise mix as directed by the package. (I usually make this as the very last item, as it doesn’t hang around well and is best served immediately)
7. Drizzle hollandaise over your asparagus. Enjoy!
I did try a new coke Jello that did not set up. I will continue to play around with the recipe and get back to you. It was older and I’m not sure my replacement ingredients were correct! If you have a good recipe to share, I would be excited to try it!
