Dr. Pepper Braised short ribs

Haven't made them in so long so I did this weekend

Easy to do and out of this world

Short ribs (depends on people serving)
Dr. Pepper, a can to a 20oz bottle
Beef stock
Bay leaf
Celery, carrot, Onions, chopped in big pieces
Adobe in a can or soy or teryiaki sauce (your choice, I like soy and teryiaki)

First brown the short ribs on all sides with some oil in large pot, remove
Add vegetables for just a couple minutes
Return ribs to pot
Add Dr. P and stock until the liquid is not quite covering the ribs
Add bay leaves, thyme, "sauce", and cover.
Place in 350 oven for 3-4 hours. Season with S&P

Make a gravy with runnings, mash some potatoes, and cut a good bread.

I dont use measurements, just kind of wing it

    I am not a big Dr Pepper fan. Have you ever used anything else?

    Any cola or soda with sugar and caramel color will work fine

    Ya, I would suspect any dark soda. Root beer would be good or cherry coke. I might try cherry coke next time. Ive done ribs in cherry coke and they were pretty good

    Read somewhere fhat u can also use this on country style finger ribs in the crock pot. Think they called them sticky ribs. Might have to try it out
