Oven Baked Ribs

READY IN: 2hrs 40mins
Recipe by Irmgard

This Michael Smith recipe is delicious, easy to assemble and very forgiving. I found myself low on brown sugar so substituted maple syrup to make up the difference. The ribs turned out great and the leftovers reheat very well.

Serves me right for trusting 1 review, who didn't even use the right ingredients. This recipe sucked, plain and simple. I don't know where the Michael Smith reference is from, I don't think this quite followed whatever he may have done in the original. I've tried many other oven rib recipes with much better results. This one is bland and ribs are on the tough side.
