This is fasntastic!!!!!!!!! I made thee for DH's bday dinner snd everyone raved about them! I will make these many times through the summer nd winter. I usually just put the ribs in the crock weith the rub or sauce and this time decided to do the extra steps. It was so worth it! I did add in an additional step of deglazing the pan wityh a 1/4 c of additional bourban and poured that into the crock over the ribs. Wonderful flavors melded together and my house smelled "delicious" as everyone said coming through the door. pics to follow

***PERFECT!*** I'm not a big beef rib fan, but Wow.. Just Wow! My husband brought home some beef ribs and I thought , what am I going to do with those. I can't have sugar so I didn't want to BBQ them. So I headed to RecipeZaar and this recipe stuck out immediately. I substituted splenda for the sugar and deleted the carrots (I didn't have any). This was hearty, slightly sweet, sticky and wonderful. I really enjoyed this dish. I'm making it again tomorrow using a seven bone roast. I plan to serve it over sour cream mashed potatoes. A great hearty meal for a cold winters day! Thanks so much.

I agree this recipe is awful bad after taste simply not appealing and I too now have nothing prepared for dinner and my beautiful ribs go to the trash this is just terrible
