I've used this and similar recipes for several years. The only additional suggestion I would make is to drop a quartered onion and 3 or four cloves of crushed garlic into the water prior to broiling the ribs. That seems to "punch up" the flavor of the ribs quite a bit.

Today's pork is mostly pre-tenderized and it is unnecessary time or flavor-wise to par-boil ribs. Flavor is better if you put in oven, uncovered for 20 minutes, then add BBQ sauce and finish for 10-15 more, let rest 10 before eating. It still falls off bone.

Love it. I did add some galic and onion to the boiling water, and instend of cider vinegar i added balsamic vinegar and I doubled the brown suger.

I usually don't have luck when preparing ribs, but these turned out well. I added a little extra sugar to make the sauce not quite as tangy. I will try the sauce with chicken also. Overall, a good recipe.

Great recipe !!!! Very messy use foil in your pan or use throw away baking dish. What a great taste.

A really superb and easy recipe. My wife is VERY particular about the taste and tenderness of her ribs and this recipe satisfied even her. The sauce SEEMS like just another ordinary one but I can assure you that the flavor is really first rate. THIS will be our rib recipe from now on. By the way, we agree that it needs a bit more brown sugar.

This recipe was okay. I think the sauce tasted a little too much like ketchup and I would rather have used garlic then onions, the onions were a little overwhelming. To tweek the recipe, I would use less ketchup, more vinegar and brown sugar/mustard and add a little worcestershire sauce.
