These are so tender. We always get compliments when we make these with the easy to make homemade sauce. I often have to quadruple the recipe!!

Thank you, Chef Shannon!!! My family loved, and I do mean LOVED, this recipe. My son sat at the table with a towel draped over him and cleaned each rib, almost to the point of shining. They were so tasty, and easy to make. I think the exact words my son said were "Can we have these ribs everynight?" Thank you for an awesome, and easy recipe!!!!
