Recipe by Karen From Colorado

These ribs are so tender they fall off the bone. Packed with flavor. Very easy dinner.

As soon as I saw the name of this recipe I recognized it as one I have used for the last ten years. I originally got it from a magazine add for Reynolds cooking bags. I have had this tattered magazine page for years. Now I can replace it with a printable version. Thanks. Jessie.
