Cleaning out stacks of old magazines and want to save this from Cdn Living Dec 1997. Cook time does not include 8 to 24 hour marinade time.

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.
