A meal centered around ribs always feels just a little bit special.  Throw together these easy Root Beer Ribs, some corn on the cob, and a quick coleslaw and you're all set!  Here's a couple ways to make it possible - even on busy weekdays. 

A Ribs Recipe That Works in a Slow Cooker or a Pressure Cooker!

Sometimes it’s easier to plan ahead and have the right ingredients on hand than it is to plan ahead and have the right amount of time available! Here's a quick and easy ribs recipe that solves that problem for you.  If your mornings usually stay on track, use your slow cooker to make delicious Root Beer Ribs.  If prepping for dinner in the morning just isn’t an option for you, you can still make Quick Cooker Barbecue Root Beer Ribs in your electric pressure cooker in under an hour!  The ingredients are the same for both recipes so you can make a last-minute decision about which cooking method will work best for you.

Slow Cooker Recipe for Ribs:

Root Beer Ribs only takes about ten minutes to prep.  This recipe calls for root beer for a couple reasons:  The root beer flavor complements the barbecue sauce and meat and the carbonation has a slight tenderizing effect.  When this recipe is done, the meat will be tender and starting to fall off the bone.  Start cooking about 6–8 hours before you want to eat if you set your slow cooker on low.  Cut that time down to four hours if you set your slow cooker to high.  The ribs are going to be delicious no matter which setting you choose, so pick whichever method works best with your schedule.

Best Way to Cook Ribs in Under an Hour:

Electric pressure cookers are kitchen game changers!  If you have an hour to make dinner, like when you're running into the house after a long day -  use a pressure cooker to make Quick Cooker Barbeque Root Beer Ribs. You’ll enjoy the same ten-minute prep and ability to leave the kitchen as you would making ribs in a slow cooker.  You can spend that out-of-the-kitchen time outside soaking up some summer sunshine!
