I followed this recipe exactly except I used 3 pounds of beef stew meat instead of the ribs. After after step 13, I cooked the meat in a crock pot for five hours on low instead of using the oven. The meat turned out tender and flavorful. The sauce is barbeque flavored, a bit on the sweet side, and has a slight tanginess to it. I toasted some bread with cheese slices in our toaster oven and topped it with the warm beef to make a delicious sandwich. The family raved.
I felt the BBQ sauce was a bit too sweet and maybe also a bit too tangy. Next time I would cut both brown sugar and vinegar in half. When I browned the meat, the rub burned. I was afraid the burned flavor would mess up the sauce, so I washed the pan between the meat and the onion. I'm sure that lost a lot of the flavor, but it was still quite flavorful. (I was surprised at how thick the sauce was without any thickener.) I used just 2 cups of BBQ sauce, and that was more than enough sauce. I would only recommend using 3 cups if you have a LOT of meat. The ingredient list is pretty long, but it was not hard to put it all together, as I mixed the sauce ingredients while the meat was browning. Overall, I think this recipe was just OK and not "really great" as the name suggests. I doubt I'll make it again.
This was amazing! My son said, 'O.M.G. Wow!!' and asked how much we would pay for the meal in a restaurant. Definitely a new household favourite.
I followed this recipe too, except I changed the ingredients a little. Instead of barbecue sauce I used two 12 ounce bottles of chili sauce and eliminated the brown sugar in the sauce portion of the recipe. Still used the brown sugar in the rub though. Excellent recipe....!!!!
Both DH and I thought that this had a Wow! factor! It really is powerful. With that said it grows on you and the more you taste it the more you like it. I made as posted with the exception on using boneless beef ribs and cooking in the cock pot. I did cook them in the oven for the last hour to thicken up the sauce. I served it with a side of rice. YUM!
Great does not say enough! I am not a rib fan and I LOVE this recipe. The real test is when DH gets home tonight! This is definately going in my cookbook.
