This is my mother-in-laws much requested recipe for ribs. They are tender and delicious with a mildly spiced sauce you can pour over rice.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the ribs in a dutch oven or large saucepan with enough water to cover.
  2. Bring to a boil, lower the temperature and simmer the ribs for 30 minutes.
  3. Drain the ribs.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  5. Season the ribs with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Place in a shallow roasting pan meaty side up.
  7. Combine the sauce ingredients, and pour over the ribs.
  8. Bake until done, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
  9. Baste ribs with sauce every 15 minutes.
  10. If sauce gets too thick, add a bit of water.

Very, very tasty and easy to make - definitely a keeper!!! I recommend reducing the baking time ...after an hour, the meat was falling off the bones. Thanx Hag Chef!!

Best ribs we've eaten. I do recommend that cooking time be lowered to 1.25 to 1.50 hours AND that cooking dish should be covered. Also, back ribs are leaner and tastier than side ribs--although, both kinds will work fine.

Love these, and so easy to make. I didn't have Honey so I substitued Molases and it worked just fine.
Thanks for Sharing!
