Richard’s recipe for pork ribs inspired us to whip up this low-calorie version. H-E-B swapped out regular beer for diet root beer in the sauce and elevated the ribs on a bed of onions to cook. Ridiculously good ribs!

Ingredients

BBQ SAUCE:
  • 1 Tbsp. H-E-B OLIVE OIL
  • 1 ONION, chopped
  • 3 GARLIC CLOVES, minced
  • 1 Tbsp. CHILI POWDER
  • 12 oz. DIET ROOT BEER
  • 16 oz. H-E-B ORIGINAL BBQ SAUCE

RIBS:

  • 2 racks PORK RIBS
  • 4 Tbsp. H-E-B TEXAS ORIGINALS STEAK SEASONING
  • 1 small ONION, sliced

Recipe Info

BBQ Sauce:
  1. Heat oil in a medium pot over Medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook until tender. Mix in chili powder, stirring for 30 seconds. Pour root beer into pot and cook until liquid is reduced by half. Whisk in BBQ sauce and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside. 


Ribs:

  1. Preheat oven to 350⁰F. Trim fat from ribs as needed; cover ribs with seasoning. Layer roasting pan with sliced onions; place ribs on top. Add 1 cup water to the pan. After reserving ½ cup of BBQ sauce, brush the ribs with the remaining BBQ sauce. Cover the ribs with aluminum foil and bake for 2 ½ hours or until tender. Remove foil; brush ribs with remaining BBQ sauce. Place uncovered ribs back into oven for 10 minutes or until the sauce has become a glaze.
