Honey Garlic Ribs

"Freeze ribs right in the marinade to take along to the cottage or those guests expected in a few days So easy to make and such a wonderful flavor. This recipe came from a Canadian living magazine a number of years ago and I have been making them ever since. I so often have a bag made up at the cottage for those unexpected guests or those hot summer days when you just don't feel like cooking. They can also be served as a appetizer."

    Oh so good. Fall of the bone tender and so lick your fingers sticky! Made as part of the Zaar recipe swap #16, May 2008. I should have made more :-) Gonna post a pic now!

    Delicious sauce! A nice cut of meat is very important. Unfortunately I bought a very fatty cut of ribs which didn't do the recipe justice. I will definitely try this one again!

    Wonderfully flavorful and so incredibly good! This is a great make ahead and freezer friendly, perfect to have on hand for impromptu grilling. Thanks for another Dotty2 winner!


I have just recently retired. I worked in the banking industry for 25 yrs. My husband and I own a cottage and have spent most of this last summer at the lake. We go there in the winter as well. I love to cook and I collect recipes. <img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/Pohutukawa-2-1.jpg"> <img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/pick0GuXD-1.jpg"> <img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/picNW72Oj-1.jpg"> <img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/picx2XGjA-1.jpg"> <img src="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3316/3345270671_dd30334798.jpg"> <img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/picx2XGjA-1.jpg">
