I did these a bit differently than you have stated although. I put the ribs in a big dutch oven and then poured all the other ingredients over. Put them in the oven for 8-10 hours on 200 degrees. Perfect. They fell off the bone they were so moist. A nice touch other than usual way of just throwing some bbq sauce over all. Thanks for posting Wicked.~ Made for Holiday Tag!

Wicked ribs from the Wicked Cook! These ribs were just awesome, the whole family LOVED them. I made the recipe as written but doubled the sauce, however, next time I will triple the sauce as my family really liked it served over the rice as well. I did use the cloves as we like them, but I did not double the cloves because it can over power some recipes. I started cooking the ribs in the crockpot (after I had simmered them), but I didn't like the fact that all of the ribs weren't submerged in the delicious sauce so I switched to a glass 9x13 pan part way through the cooking time. I covered the dish in foil and baked for about 1 hour at 300F. The ribs were so tender and the sauce was just fabulous. The kids had three helpings of ribs each so that should tell you something about your recipe! Thx so much for sharing this, I will make this many more times and it is definitely going in the "favourites" book!

Delicious! I left out the cloves (not a fan of the clove) and didn't have garlic powder so I doubled the ginger. It was very good and we all ate it up. The only problem was that I only had half the amount of ribs than what was recommended :( I made this for Photo Tag. Thanks!
