We really enjoy the superb combination of flavors in these ribs. Cut in single rib size, they make great appetizers.

I was unable to find my very old tried and true recipe so decided to try this one. When the sauce was cooking up it smelled pretty much like ketchup and I was a bit worried. However, something wonderful happens when it bakes on the ribs and they taste very nice. The sauce sticks to the ribs. I don't think I will be looking for my other recipe! Thank you, MizzNezz
