It's picnic season, a great time for burgers and ribs! This is easy and yummy. Cook these ribs ahead of time and take them to your next picnic.  July Fourth is quickly approaching! But don't just wait for a picnic; this is a great dish any time of year!

This recipe is from Betty Crocker's Slow Cooker Cookbook.  Enjoy!

1/2 t pepper

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 t salt
1 medium onion, sliced
1/2 cup cola

Spray inside of 5-6 qt. slow cooker with cooking spray.

This sounds wonderful but I have a small crock-pot and usually we make the ribs in the oven and then finish them on the BBQ. Happy upcoming 4th of July to you and your family!
