I just happen to find 3 pounds of pork ribs buried in my freezer and whipped this recepie together is about 20 minutes. I added about two cups of smokey bbq sauce and did what one of the other reviews said by adding all the sauce and covering it until the last 15 minutes. Flipped it half way through as well. One word review: Unreal!!! Cheers mate!

Not good

Mar 28, 2005

This was so good. My husband made it. He doubled the recipe and put all the sauce over the ribs, basted them while cooking. He also put aluminum foil over them, took it off 15 minutes before they were done. They were sweet and tender. We made this twice in the past week. Thanks!!

My family loved this. The only change I'd make is to boil the ribs longer. I say 20 minutes instead of the 10 recommended. I feel this would make the meat more tender. I started to follow the previous reviewer and covered it in the beginning. After 20 minutes when I went to baste, I noticed the sauce was still thin and worried about it remaining that way during the whole baking process. So I uncovered it for the rest of the time. The sauce thickened perfectly and was very tasty. Remember to turn ribs and baste every 15 min or so. I will definitely make this again.

The ribs were tasty but the sauce dried up during cooking. Will make this again though as it is easy and good, but will pour over all the sauce at once and cover for most of the cooking time. I made half the recipe of sauce again and poured over the left over ribs and this was terrific.

Wow! I came home for work, wasn't sure how to fix the country ribs I had in the fridge. Then I found this recipe. My husband loved it! I did not add the lemon juice because I did not have any, but it was still delicious with out it. I will use it agin. Thanks for the great recipe!

and my changes were- i do not boil ribs and lose flavor- so i placed in a 9 X 13- added 1 cup water- mixed other ingred together and spooned half on- baked at 325 (covered with foil)- 1 hour removed foil- added rest of ing- - baked another hour- your time will depend on your ribs i had country style- so they are very thick not like a sparerib- mostly meat- i did for us change a bit- i had a partial jar of applesauce-with cinnamon- so i did not add that- and i used 1/3 the amount of honey in place of the maple- we do not care for it and not in the budget-lol- the only thing i would do different is maybe a sprinkle of red pepper flakes- just cause we like a kick- but all in all very nice recipe- oh- i just dumped all in the partial jar of applesauce and shook the heck out of it - shook the sauce- not the ribs-lol
