Sweet 'n' Saucy Root Beer Pork Ribs

Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 1 1/2 to 2 hour
Serves: 4-6
Ingredients:
  • Two racks Swift Premium® St. Louis Style Pork Spareribs (5 to 6 pounds total)
  • 2 to 3 liters root beer
  • Root Beer Barbecue Sauce:
  • 1 3/4 cups root beer
  • 1 1/4 cups ketchup
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Cooking Directions:
  1. Cut racks in half. Place ribs, bone sides down, on wire rack in a large, deep roaster with cover. Pour enough root beer over ribs to cover. Bring mixture to boil; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until meat is very tender, rearranging ribs in roaster halfway through cooking. If necessary, add more root beer to cover ribs.
  2. Meanwhile, for sauce, combine 1 3/4 cups root beer, ketchup, brown sugar, paprika, and Worcestershire sauce. Gently boil, uncovered, for 10 to 15 minutes or until reduced to 2 cups.
  3. Preheat gas grill to medium for direct grilling. Remove pork from root beer; discard root beer in roaster. Pat ribs dry with paper towels. Brush both sides with 1 cup sauce.
  4. Grill ribs, uncovered, for 8 to 12 minutes or until heat through and sauce begins to caramelize, turning ribs over and brushing with sauce halfway through grilling. Transfer ribs to cutting board. Cut into serving-size portions; brush with remaining sauce.
