I must admit that at first I had reservations about this recipe, but it's 'rib season', so I tried it. My son, who is a painfully picky eater, gobbled this down. He said it was 'boss'. I took it to a church function and it was a big hit. A different twist on an old favorite, nice change of pace. Yummy.

Ribs were tender- but we didn't care for the aftertaste. Perhaps the horseradish we have in the house is a little more potent than most. I also simmered them in apple cider vs apple juice.

this recipe is so good! i left out the horseradish, worcesterhire & garlic salt. i used sweet baby rays bbq sauce. it didnt need the extra spice. also, i grilled them on the grill. they were so tender and moist. they were a big hit with everyone who tried them. i've made them 3 times already and always get requests to make them from my picky daughter who loves them.

Incredible! With the unforgiving weather this weekend, grilling wasn't an option and my tastebuds wanted ribs. I think this recipe rendered some of the tastiest ribs I've ever made even though it's a boiling/oven method. It's a no-brainer to make and a "keeper"! Just may cut down on the amount of BBQ sauce the next time as there was too much.

YUM! Followed the recommendations to use less barbecue sauce (I used one regular sized bottle, and that was plenty). That was the only change I made. These ribs were the best I've ever made, grilled or in the oven. So easy! You can do other things while they are boiling on the stove and then toss them on the grill and in a few minutes they're done. I am already sharing the recipe with friends! Thanks!

AWESOME! I used this on pork chops and it was great! Boiled them in the apple juice, then marinated in the sauce for an hour or so... then put the chops on the grill... WOW great tasting and everyone loved them! Thanks!
