Country-Style Spareribs

READY IN: 9hrs 20mins
Top Review by Bobbie

Tried this recipe last night and it just didn't appeal to us. I used the country style pork ribs. The sauce was just a little too "bity" for us. I ended up adding quite a bit of barbecue sauce at the end -- just to sweeten it up a bit. I did cut the recipe in half -- maybe that was the problem. The sauce was also very thin -- it just didn't stick to the ribs like I had hoped.
