- In a large pot, place the ribs, cola, and pepper. Add water, as needed, to cover the meat. Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer very gently for 2 hours and 30 minutes to 3 hours or until the meat falls off the bone. Drain the meat and keep 250 ml (1 cup) of the cooking liquid to prepare the barbecue sauce.
- In a saucepan, brown the onion in the butter. Add the garlic, mustard, and paprika and cook for about 2 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 to 12 minutes or until sauce is syrupy. Season with salt and pepper.
- Preheat the grill, setting the burners to medium. Oil the grate.
- Grill the ribs for 5 to 6 minutes per side, basting generously with the sauce while grilling. Serve with Apple and Pecan Coleslaw.
