I made pulled pork with it, tossing all the ingredients in the crock pot and letting it simmer on low for about 4 hrs. It was a bit dry for pulled pork, so I added some extra sauce. Very tasty (especially the lemon flavor), but I agree it could have used a bit more zing. I doubled the worcester sauce and omitted the salt. Thanks for posting! (Paul Paul--thanks for the idea of serving it over buttered noodles!)

I have been the Mr. Mom for 15 yrs. (as well as working) and this is a dish my wife and two children never huff at. It's fun and easy, great tasting, and aromatic to boot. I've made this at least 6 times and always a hit. Great with or over buttered noodles.

I made this recipe 2 times. Once with regular store bought BBQ sauce and the other time with all ingredients as listed in therror recipe. Both were great. The one with store bought BBQ sauce tasted better to me because it's what I am used to but the original recipe is great too. So give it a try the only thing I did different was keep adding water so that the meat would cook long enough and be very tender. Great recipe.

These were tasty! I made them 100% in the crockpot and it worked out quite well. Very tender. The sauce kind of disappeared but I served with additional BBQ sauce poured over them. Enjoyed by all. Thanks.

This was SOOO good. I only had one packet of realemon juice (from CiCi's pizza, lol) and no worsteshire sauce. I used a T soy sauce instead. Also my ribs were partly frozen when I started and they came out PERFECT. I cooked these in a cast iron skillet with two layers of foil covering it. Served with Kohlrabi Slaw and 40 minute buns made into breadsticks instead of buns (both recipes on here). Perfect Summer meal. Wonderful recipe, thanks!

Had guests for dinner and everyone finished this up and liked it alot. I did make the mistake of burning (not browning) the onions, so started over with a new pan, added a little oil, beef bouillon , onions to be browned for the second try, and went on from there. Thanks for sharing! Loved it! This goes into the 'favorites catagory'!!

I made this using beef short ribs and they made the house smell wonderful while cooking. I will make these again as they make the ribs very tender. Thank you for sharing this with us.

Very delicious! My husband is a meat eater and absolutley loved them! I added my own little touch: I added cilantro, onions sliced in rings (not minced as the recipe calls for) and I added about 3 tablespoons of Valentino hot sauce to contradict the sweetness a little. Paula Dean is a genious!

These beef ribs were finger licking good!!! Instead of cooking on top of the stove, after sauteing the onions I poured everything into a caserole dish and baked covered in a 325 degree oven for 2 hours and they were quite tender and tasty. Thanks!!!!

These were soooo good. I used Beef Ribs as I was already making a Pork Rib recipe (Maple Glazed Ribs Maple Glazed Ribs) and followed the directions exactly. This is a definate keeper and I will be making them again soon. Thank you for posting this recipe to help me satisfy my BBQ cravings.
