This is an awesome and easy-to-make rib recipe. I always thought it was my mother's creation, but a few years ago I found a very similar version in a 1950s Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook. We'll never know who made it first. My mother was a home economist, and a goddess of recipes -- I should post more of her gems.
Anyway, I usually make this with pork ribs (almost any cut), but also discovered that it was great for beef ribs. That was when I lived in Syria and pork was hard to get. The first time I ordered ribs from the Syrian butcher, he proudly and kindly cut out the ribs. Bummer.
By the way, don't be put off by the number of steps. This is really easy to make.
