Recipe of the Month: Root Beer Ribs

Wow your friends and family with these sweet, tangy, fall-off-the-bone ribs.  Everyone will want to know your secret ingredient!

root beer ribs recipe

Root Beer Ribs

Yield:  4 – 6 servings

Ingredients
  • 2 racks baby back ribs
  • 1 bottle (2 liters) root beer
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 small white onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Instructions
  1. Place ribs in large baking dish (I use my big roasting pan. I also generally cut each rack in half so I can get everything nestled in the pan easier). Pour all but 1 cup root beer over ribs. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons salt over ribs; cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours or up to overnight, turning once if possible.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Remove ribs from root beer and pat dry with paper towel. Discard root beer in pan; wipe pan dry. Place ribs back into pan. Add 1 cup water; cover tightly with foil. Cook 2 hours or until meat is nearly falling off the bone.
  3. Meanwhile, make Root Beer Barbecue Sauce: In small saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add garlic and onion; cook 3 to 4 minutes or until onion is soft, stirring frequently. Add remaining ingredients (including reserved 1 cup root beer and 1/2 teaspoon salt); heat to boiling. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 15 to 20 minutes or until sauce thickens, stirring occasionally.
  4. Just before ribs hit the 2 hour mark in the oven, preheat grill for indirect grilling over medium-high heat. Put bones on cooler side of grill, bone side down. Brush with some Root Beer Barbecue Sauce and cook 10 to 15 minutes, then flip. Brush with sauce again and cook until ribs are lightly charred and meat is falling off bone. Serve with any remaining sauce. Bring wet-naps to the table.

Smoky Beef and Bacon Chili

I’ve always loved anything to do with the great outdoors and outdoor living.  As a result, you will often find me standing over the grill, cooking for my family.  I often enjoy sharing grilling recipes, but given this brutal Chicago winter, I imagine none of you are thinking about firing up the grill.  So here is a recipe that will keep you toasty warm during these cold winter months.  With bacon, fire-roasted tomatoes, and smoky paprika, what’s not to love?  Enjoy!

Smoky Beef Bacon Chili

Smoky Beef and Bacon Chili

Recipe Time:  1 Hour, 15 Minutes

Yield:  6 servings

Ingredients

2 slices thick-cut bacon, finely chopped

1 large onion, finely chopped

1 large garlic clove, minced

1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef

1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 tsp. chili powder

1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin

1 1/2 teaspoons sweet smoked Spanish paprika (pimentón dulce – Find at well-stocked grocery stores and from spanishtable.com.)

1/2 teaspoon to 1 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper

About 1 tsp. salt

1 can (14.5 oz.) crushed fire-roasted tomatoes or regular crushed tomatoes

1 can (8 oz.) tomato sauce

1 cup flavorful, medium-bodied beer, such as Anchor Steam

1 teaspoon Worcestershire

1 can (14.5 oz.) pinto beans, drained

Sour cream, sliced green onions, and/or coarsely shredded cheddar cheese for topping

Directions

In a large, heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high heat, cook bacon, stirring until it just begins to brown, about 4 minutes. Add onion, lower heat to medium, cover, and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, 4 to 7 minutes. Uncover pan, stir in garlic, and cook 1 minute.

Increase heat to medium-high and add ground beef; break it up with a wooden spoon and stir gently until it loses its raw color, 7 minutes. Stir in spices and 1 tsp. salt and cook 1 minute. Add tomatoes, tomato sauce, beer, and Worcestershire and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover partially, and cook 30 minutes.

Add beans and cook 10 minutes, uncovered. Season to taste with salt. Serve warm, with toppings on the side.
