Wegmans Braised WPop Ribs
Serves 8

2 pkgs (about 3 lbs each) center-cut pork spareribs, halved
1/4 cup Wegmans Cracked Pepper Seasoning Blend
2 cans WPop-Cola
32 oz Heinz Ketchup
Salt and pepper to taste

Large roasting pan (or 1 EZ Foil Rectangular Roaster Pan 16 1/8 x 11 3/4 x 2 7/8)

Clean grill with wire brush. Using soft cloth, coat grill grate lightly with vegetable oil.
Preheat grill to high
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Season ribs generously with cracked pepper. Sear on grill 3-4 minutes on each side.
Whisk together WCola and ketchup in large bowl; set aside.
Transfer ribs to roasting pan; top with cola mixture. 
Cover pan tightly with large piece of foil, sealing well.

Place pan on center rack of oven about 2 hours. Remove pan from oven. 
Use oven mitts to carefully remove foil cover; avoid steam. Transfer ribs to serving dish.

Pour sauce carefully into medium saucepan; skim fat from surface and discard. Bring sauce to boil on high on stove-top Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, about 5 min, until reduced by one-quarter. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve sauce over ribs.


Delayed Baking
Place covered pan in refrigerator until ready to bake. When ready to bake, preheat oven for 10 min before placing pan in oven. As ribs will be cold from fridge, bake time may increase.

Slow Cooker (instead of oven)
Transfer grilled ribs to 6-8 qt slow cooker.
Pour sauce over ribs.
Cover and cook on HIGH 3-4 hours or on LOW 6-7 hours, until tender

Recipe from Linda Allen, Tampa Florida

Perfect to serve with Pasta with Brie, Basil and Tomatoes

The pictures and the recipe look so appealing. I think Wegman's have some of the best tasting food. Hope you are doing well.
