Excellent rib recipe! These ribs couldn't be easier to make, and were so tender and juicy. I followed the other reviewer's advice and simmered in the stockpot for 30 minutes, followed by a 45 minute bake in the oven. I was out of barbeque sauce so I made my own for this recipe. It was all so delicious and my home smelled amazing all night! Reheated for lunch today and everyone was commenting on how great they looked and smelled. Will be making this recipe a lot... Thanks for sharing! Should also mention this was the first time I'd ever made ribs

If I could give it a 6 I would!! This recipe is simple and can be thrown together at the last minute. Ribs usually take hours, if not days to marinate properly but not these! Max 30 mins on the stove and you're good to go. They fall off the bone and melt in your mouth. My kids love them and several friends have tried this recipe since I found it and all LOVE it! Thank you, thank you!
