Instead of boiling the ribs, I would suggest baking them at 250 degrees for about 3 hours (if you have the time...) this keeps in all the natural flavors- the marinade is great! I added a little bit of sweet BBQ sauce!
The marinade was not easy to work with and I don't think it made a big difference in flavor. I think I could have just boiled the ribs and got the same result.
Excellent recipe, my best ribs ever.
I boiled the ribs for 10 minutes, baked them in this sauce for about 2 hours at 300F, then grilled them for about 15 minutes using indirect heat on the BBQ. As they were grilling I was brushing on more of the sauce, making a beautiful caramelized coating.
Easily restaurant quality.
I use this recipe time and time again, and I always get rave reviews. I usually double the sauce so there's extra for people who like to dip.
This is great. I simply put the ribs [I used spare ribs] in my slow cooker- mixed the remaining ingredients, and cooked for about 5 hours. Then transferred to the bbq for a few minutes each side. Boiled the sauce from the crock pot w/ a little corn starch to thicken-it was wonderful!
OOooh, this is so tasty. My kids and I have a sweet tooth but my husband is a savoury man. Well, when I made these the other night there (baked in casserole dish for 3hrs lid off for final 1/2 hr) he could not stop raving about it and has been nagging me to make more ever since. It's a really easy recipe with pretty much store cupboard stuff and I'm looking forward to using it on different cuts of meat to see what it's like. Thank you this one's a keeper!
These were FANTASTIC! I used Bullseye BBQ sauce in place of the ketchup for some bite and DH and I couldn't stop eating them. So sweet and delicious we're getting more ribs this weekend to try it again. I also marinated them overnight. Try this!
Karen, this recipe was so easy and delicious! I'd never cooked ribs before, but followed your directions to the letter and the ribs turned out beautifully -- so succulent, tender and flavorful. I loved the maple glaze as opposed to a heavier BBQ sauce. This one is a keeper for our family (two weekends in a row so far). Thanks SO much :-)
