My mom, who does not like sauces on meat said, and I quote. 'You can make this any time.' Wow... I didn't change a thing and it tastes wonderful! You can use this for any sweet and sour dish you need. Thank you!

These are the best! We were all licking our fingers while we ate these ribs. I'm also going to try this sauce on other things like chicken and pork chops. Thanks bikelap9 for posting this keeper. We will be making these often.

This is a true Sweet/Sour rib recipe! The adults loved it - the kids would have preferred a little sweeter more BBQ flavour (but honestly, it was sweet enough!) Thanks for a great recipe.

This was GOOD! We all really liked it and my daughter mentioned it definitely tasted like sweet n sour from a restaurant. I'll definitely be trying this again and trying the sauce with chicken. YUM!

Simply awesome!! Easy to make and all the ingredients were in my pantry. I used crosscut ribs and they were delicious! I squirted a bit of Sriracha HOT chili sauce on the side for dipping and it made the flavor pop even more.

What I really appreciate about this site is reading comments before trying the recipe. I began fixing this recipe with those comments in mind. I was out of brown sugar but that was ok because it might be too sweet anyway. I only used 1/2 cup white sugar. I did not have a full cup of ketchup, but there was mention of chili sauce. I added chili sauce with a big dollop of ketchup. After 1and1/2 hr cooking, I set the meat down in the foil lined pan and added 1/2 the amount of the sauce to the meat, cooked for another 1/2 hr, added the rest of the sauce and let set on warm for another hr. Nice appearance and very good taste!

Really easy and more texture than how I make it on the stovetop. Didn't have enough brown sugar but added crushed pineapple instead of the water. Hard to coat the meat but still very tasty! Thanks bikelap9

My husband is uber-fussy, but when he tells you "Make this again, don't change it, don't mess with it, save any left-over sauce and freeze it!" you know it's good! I will admit to substituting pineapple juice for water, and lowering the white sugar content a little, but that's the only change I made, honest!

WONDERFUL recipe! The only thing my family has asked for me to change with this is to MAKE MORE next time! Thanks for sharing!
