My late Uncle Larry was all Texan and he loved to cook. This was his recipe for beef ribs. I like to use this on pork steaks though. Either way, enjoy it.

Hi, Mysterygirl! We loved your ribs. I did use less sugar. Loved the leftovers warmed up, too. With our weather below freezing, this is great "comfort food."

Wonderful! Marvelous! The meat is tender and moist, the sauce is flavorful. Perfect just the way it is. (Wondering though, how would this taste with chicken??? or beef??? I think I'll try it!)

WOW! STUPENDOUS! MARVELOUS! YUM! These ribs are all these and then some! OMG, the taste is SCRUMPTIOUS! The meat is fall-off-the-bone tender. I used bone-in pork ribs and they turned out soooo good. What a dish! If this is the way Texans cook, I'm movin to Texas! Thanks for posting, MG. We loved it. LC
