Hunk of Meat Monday


  1. I've always wanted to try cooking meat with cola, but never have. (Even though it seems to be the Southern thing to do!)

    Curious--what does the cream of tartar do here?

    Thanks for linking these delicious ribs up at See Ya In the Gumbo!

  2. It provides extra potassium.....and a little extra tang as well.
