This recipe needs salt! Also the cook time for the ribs is way off! I tried to cook the ribs for only the 2 hours and they were though! I had to end up cooking them for 6 hours. Also they had a lot of fat on the top so I skimmed all the fat off the top with a spoon. Other than that I thought this recipe was delicious.
This is a terrific recipe. I really enjoyed going through the steps, as it made the entire cooking process very meditative. My only addition to this recipe was mixing chipotle peppers in adobo sauce into the blend. I'd only recommend doing this if you really want to spice it up. Ribs and steaks can sometimes be on the bland side, so I'll definitely keep this recipe for future use!
This sauce is delicious! It is tedious and takes time to make though. We will not boil the ribs next time as they were quite tough. Would heat them in the oven instead. Maybe cook longer at a lower temperature when you cook later. We will see. The reason you boil them is to make broth which is used in the recipe, but you could get broth other ways. Easy to make, but time consuming. Worth it? Definitely! Will definitely make again. I also think I will roast the chilis before making the sauce. Thanks!
Fabulous! This is prepared in the authentic Mexican way and couldn't be better. Does 19 dried chiles sound like a lot? It isn't. I made this exactly according to the recipe except for adding a teaspoonful or so of sugar to counteract the slight bitterness of the chiles. Any left over sauce can be put to good use making enchiladas or chilaquiles.
