2 Tbsp.
Cornstarch, dissolved in 2 tbsp cold water
2 Tbsp.
2
Racks Smithfield St. Louis Spare Ribs, (2 1/3 to 3 pounds each), cut into 3- or 4-rib sections

1/4 cup(s)
Dark brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup(s)
2 Tbsp.
Chili powder
2 Tbsp.

1 1/2 cup(s)

Directions


  1. Combine brown sugar, chili powder, salt, onion powder and allspice in medium bowl. Set aside half the spice mixture (about 1/3 cup.); sprinkle the rest over both sides of ribs. Pour 1/2 cup root beer into slow cooker and add ribs. Cover and cook on low 5-6 hours or on high for 3 1/2-4 hours, until ribs are very tender.

  2. With 10 minutes left on ribs, combine remaining root beer and reserved spice mixture in medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Add cornstarch mixture and stir until sauce thickens, just a few seconds. Remove from heat; set aside.

  3. Remove ribs to platter and cover. Strain the cooking liquid and pour off fat. Add 1/3 cup remaining liquid to sauce; stir until smooth.

  4. Brush ribs with sauce, serve with remaining sauce on side.
