Does take patience to simmer for two hours, TRUE! The only other thing is NO WAY would this be a meal for 2! Made 9 ribs, ONE was more than enough for me, And I don't eat like a bird, Would my grocery bill you like to see? Don't have ANY expectations about these ribs on the grill, But today these DID T-H-R-I-L-L-! Thanks Happy Cooker Too, I did take your advice, added 2 tabespoons of lemon juice and they came out very nice!

A very tasty sauce! I did deviate a little. Browned the ribs in oven for 30 at 350. Put all sauce ingredients in the food processor, except for green onion--made it very easy. Also I did not use Crystal Lite as I do not care for it. I substituted two tblsp lemon juice. Definitely would make again. Thanks for submitting.
