Great Flavor! We were looking for something different to do with ribs and this definitely fit the bill. The meat fell off the bones.

I made these yesterday and couldn't wait to get home from to work to test them. The meat was so tender, and the sauce ingredients blended nicely so it was a bit sweet, but you couldn't tell it was apple butter. I also threw in some quartered redskins. I thought I'd have leftovers but my boyfriend finished them up. Will be making these again.

Wonderful flavor. I tweaked things a bit by adding chopped apples and carmelized onions to the juices, which made a more hearty gravy. The meat was incredibly tender and just fell apart -- no knives needed!
