Lime Spareribs


"A honey mustard lime sauce coats these baked ribs. Scrumptious! When determining the number of servings, take into account the fact that most people actually like to have a rack of ribs to themselves. Accordingly, 4 pounds of spareribs might serve 4 or 6 people, depending on the serving size!"

This recipe was quick, easy, and a great crowd pleaser! It also works well cooked in a slow cooker!

This is a tasty change of pace after bbq'ing all summer. I used baby back pork ribs, then followed the recipe, using my oven. The recipe doesn't say to do so, but I covered them with tin foil, u...

This was really good! We used beef ribs instead of pork and it turned out just fine. The lime gives a great flavor. It was a little sour for me, so I think I'm going to experiment in the futu...

My family really enjoyed these ribs, especially my 7 year old son. They were so simple to make. The only thing I'd do different next time is to put them in a cooking bag to make them more tend...

The Lime Spareribs have got to be the very best yet! As my Husband does not like sweet on any meat - these hit him perfectly and instead of doing them in our oven, I did them on our outside gri...

My family gave this a 3. I agree it was okay not outstanding. The recipe when printed does not tell you what to do with the olive oil. I would not make again.

A little bit sour but it's ok. I thought that I will try to use less lime juice next time.

Absolutely delicious!!! The lime just adds a wonderful zip! Yum!!!

This is a great recipe, and called for ingredients I had on hand. (Except I used canned mushrooms instead of fresh, and adobo sauce instead of chili sauce.) I also liked the quick prep time. ...
