Hoisin Country-Style Spare-Ribs

"Our family loves pork ribs! This recipe produces a tender meaty pork rib which we bake in the oven so it is great for the winter months when grilling isn't an option. *Note: Serving size depends on how many ribs there are in the packages."

    I just made these ribs for dinner tonight and they were delicious. Noting that an earlier review mentioned had wished the sauce flavored the ribs more. Here is how I solved that. Since I was using 2 x's the amount of ribs. I knew I would need 2 x's the sauce. First, I marinated them over night with salt, pepper and garlic powder. In the morning, I made up one batch of the sauce and marinated the ribs in it for around 8 hours. Before I cooked the ribs, I made a second batch of sauce. I did not brown the ribs before putting them in the oven. I did spread the sauce on them and baked them for the 45 minutes as mentioned above. Instead of putting them back in the oven. I noticed that they were cooked thru. I took the remaining sauce and then browned the ribs on my grill.

    I've never made such easy and delicious ribs. I mixed some extra sauce with some olive oil and lime juice to make a great complimentary salad dressing.

    Wonderful flavor and easy to do. Even though I only had two lbs. of meat, I made the entire sauce and we had extra on the side. Served with Recipe #33489 and Recipe #28551.

    Great on ribs and pork! I made some up and used it on pork chops on top of the stove. Let the chops sit in the sauce until it thickened up. Deeelicious!

    Made 2 batches of sauce and marinated the ribs in one batch for 8 hrs. I made a second batch of sauce, baked the ribs for 45 minutes with the new sauce and then finished them on the grill basting them with the remaining sauce.
