Want to make those baby back ribs even better?

Shake up the sauce with Dr. Pepper for ribs coated with a smoky, sweet sauce that you won’t be able to get enough of.

“To be honest, the idea of having Dr. Pepper in my BBQ sauce totally freaked me out–but boy was I wrong,” says food blogger Gaby Dalkin of What’s Gaby Cooking. “It adds a hint of sweetness that compliments these ribs. And let’s not forget about the fact that the meat seriously falls off the bone in this recipe.”

Dalkin’s recipe for BBQ baby back ribs features a blend of chili powder and cayenne pepper to balance sweet against spicy.

“It’s super tender and juicy–and perfect for making a mess,” Dalkin says. “With only about 10 minutes of actual prep time these ribs will become a staple in your kitchen!”

These tantalizing ribs also offer another perk, especially for those with significant others.

“They make a great guy pleasing dish,” says Dalkin. “Perhaps a special birthday for your man?”

Single? No problem–sharing is overrated, anyway.
