An easy to make homemade barbecue sauce poured over ribs and baked instead of barbecued. Serve with cole slaw or kapusta Kapusta (Sauerkraut), green beans, and boiled small new potatoes with melted butter and dill. Can also be served as an appetizer. Tip: Wash some inexpensive white terry wash cloths from the dollar store (3 for $1). Dampen clean wash cloths with hot water; wring out and wrap in foil paper; place one on a dish beside each place setting instead of paper napkins.

These were wonderful! I used country style ribs, red onions, Louisiana hot sauce, homemade chili sauce. Great meal, especially as it has no bottled bbq sauce. Very easy to follow directions.
