When a lowfat queen decides to go hog wild, she needs a very easy recipe. Have not cooked ribs in years but recently began to crave them. Did not want to go through the trouble of making sauce from scratch but wanted more than the sauce from the bottle. Made a half batch of this using country-style ribs and got easy and fabulous. At the chef's suggestion, I cut the parboil time to 30 minutes. My sauce used spicy brown mustard in lieu of yellow, and my sauce of choice was Kraft's Bold n' Spicy. The meat was soo tender, it was really falling off the bone tender and moist. The sauce was alsoa wonderful blendof sweet and spicy - just what you want in BBQ. I had lots of sauce left over and plan to use it in cookings some chickn breasts.
