my mom also made this but it did not have chili powder- I still have the original cookbook and that was not in there- may have to try the chili powder. It is the best! Have tried it in the crock pot also but it is better in the oven.
My mom made this recipe for us when we were kids in the 60's and 70's from the Better Home and Garden Meat Cook Book..published in 1960...as adults we recalled it and finally came across the book recently in my mom's boxes! It's as good as I remembered! Definitely make more sauce!
My mother-in-law introduced my husband and I to this recipe. We really enjoy the flavor and the meat is so tender. We get two racks of ribs and have the butcher remove the membrane and slice the racks into individual ribs. We also spend a couple buck and get a disposable roasting pan. These things make it all easy-peasy. Lastly, we double the sauce and are liberal with the hot sauce and it still doesn't end up spicy hot, just flavorful.
