Paint the top with sauce then return pan to oven for 30 minute Remove, flip the ribs meaty side up and cover liberally with sauce. Return to oven for 1 hour.

Just fabulous! DS is home, and so I doubled the recipe. Took a pic but haven't uploaded....was hoping there would be some leftovers I could photograph when we had daylight, but these are so good he ate them all! The best baked ribs I've had yet. I did add a bit of greek seasoning to the ribs when I first put them in the oven, but other than that, I followed the recipe exactly. The sauce was a hit. Thanks for sharing!

THIS my friend, most certainly IS an excellent recipe! However, small the prep it calls to add tabasco and lemon juice into the tomato sauce mixture...but the amounts are not listed in the ingredients. So I put a dash of both in. It was FABULOUS! A keeper for sure! Never made them this way, but is now one of my favorites! To die for! Thank you SO much for sharing!!!! xo LA :-)
