Adapted from Spend with Pennies. Spend with Pennies quoted, "The key to making these ribs melt-in-your-mouth-fall-off-the-bone tender is slow roasting them in the oven. I know many people boil their ribs.. I am very anti-boil… I just think it “waters down” the ribs and takes away the flavor! After the initial 2 hours, if your ribs aren’t quite tender enough, leave them a little longer… these babies need TIME!! Back ribs are the best you can get and, while they cost a couple of dollars more, they are totally worth the splurge!"
