Great flavour, great recipe. Sadly, I overcooked the ribs and some of them looked a bit charred. Surprisingly even the well-done ribs were moist, tender and flavourful and did not taste burned. I will watch them a bit more closely next time and pull them out earlier. I love the lemon juice flavour. I did only get to have them in the marinade for about 5 hours and they were, indeed, very tender. This will be my go-to Greek Rib recipe. Thanks for sharing.
Great I slow cooked them at 250 for 3 hours and they just fell off the bone.
This was a very good recipe, and might add easy as well. One of the better greek rib recipes I have tried in a long time!
