Recipe by Redneck Epicurean

These are sure to be a hit on your appy table. If you would rather make meal out of these, that's easily done too. To keep these warm after cooking, throw them a crockpot on low and put a little container of cocktail toothpicks next to them. Stand back, and watch them fly away!

Wow!! This recipe was great. I loved the sauce. I did not have any molasses, so I used honey. My DH could not quit coming into the kitchen and sneaking a bit of the sauce. I will make this recipe again, and again.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cut the ribs into 1 1/2-2" pieces. Place either a disposable tin pan or a shallow baking dish lined with non-stick foil. Salt and pepper the ribs to taste.
  2. Cover with foil and place in the oven for 45 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, stir together the remaining basting sauce.
  4. Remove the ribs from the oven and drain any fatty liquid. Toss with 1/2 cup of the sauce.
  5. Return the ribs to the oven, uncovered, and bake an additional 30 minutes, basting with the remaining sauce.
