Recipe Comments & Reviews

My daughter makes this recipe at least every second week (even in the winter) > These ribs are the best i've ever eatem!
I have been making this recipe for years, it is easy and very yummy. I get rave reviews for 'my' ribs every time I serve them
I have used this recipe for years for ribs from the LOL Cookbooks. It is easy and my family's favorite. I always make double the rib sauce because everyone loves it and I freeze the extra for another meal.
