      Well, you have topped it again!! Excellent! I used beef ribs. They are a little tougher than pork spareribs had enough vinegar and spices to make them mouthwatering. I will continue to make again and again. Excellent mix of spices! This sauce is spicy and has a vinegary bite like chili sauce but it is just right for this family. If you want a "hot Peppery taste" then I suggest adding a little tabasco...but this sauce is really good. Not meant to satisfy jalapeno fans. Good Job!

      We are a sparerib eating family and these were pretty darn good. Whenever I make something from Zaar and my husband likes it, he gives me the "thumbs up" whch means it's 5 stars. I didn't have tomatoe juice, so I subbed a small can of tomatoe sauce and just increased the water by 1/2 cup. I also used double the amount of ribs, but kept the sauce the same and it was just fine. I also used extra garlic.
