"I adopted this recipe after Mean Chef left the site. The recipe is from Fine Cooking Magazine. My comments from my first reviews were, "I prepared these for my Christmas Open House appetizer buffet. I used baby back ribs and rubbed liberally with the spice rub. They smelled heavenly while baking, and had a great flavor even before I added the sauce. Everyone raved, and they were the first item to disappear from the buffet." I have since made these for many, many parties and everyone always loves them. I use baby back ribs, and 2 racks are never enough. Cooking time for baby back ribs is about 3 hours."

"These were great!! A nice change from BBQ ribs, and SO tender!"
"Agree w/ YungB. Next time I will reduce the salt. I doubled the sauce, but that was completely unnecessary. These were excellent. Thanks for a great recipe!"
"Excellent ribs. The next time, I will reduce the salt but the rest of the ingredients are perfect."
"I just made this tonight. I used dried fennel seeds instead of ground fennel. I really love the dipping sauce. I baked them for 3 hours. Thank you for posting this recipe."
"These ribs were great. The dipping sauce is amazing. I didn't have any fennel on hand but used all other ingredients for the rub.I used baby back ribs and cooked them for 3 hours. Ribs were tender, falling of the bone. I can't wait to make then again! Thanks"
"Absolutely fantastic! Used baby back ribs, perfect right at 3 hours. Just crushed my fennel seed, rather than grinding, but otherwise followed recipe exactly.Used tamari in the sauce. My skinny 9 yr-old, who usually just picks at food, put them away.So asked him if I should review & if it should be a 5-star. He said it should be at least 10 stars. Big hit around my house. Thanks! "
"Great Recipe! I made these for a Sunday Dinner and my family is raving. This will be a new 'special' in our house! Thank you!!"
"Outstanding. I loved these soooo much. They were tender and had a great flavor and the dipping sauce is TDF. Simply fabulous. "
