"These sumptuous, habit-forming ribs can be mild, to very spicy depending on your taste. My husband and I like things HOT, and the honey, mustard, onion and spices blended together will have you beggin' for more! The ribs have a beautiful presentation and will be well-enjoyed at intimate dinners, as well as backyard barbeques."

Loved the flavor, made some small changes in preparing. I first placed the ribs in a large pot and covered with water. Covered, and simmered 1 hour. Drained the ribs and transfered to a shallow dish. After preparing the glaze I let it cool slightly and then poured over the ribs. Let the ribs marinate at least 2 hours, I let mine marinate over night. Grilled them while frequently basting... it was soooo good. A little spicy for those with sensitive taste buds. My boyfriend loved the flavor, but said they were too hot to eat as many as he wanted.


I absolutely LOVED the flavor of this sauce, but was very disappointed in the end result. It didn't flavor up the ribs as much as I thought it would, so our ribs tasted as if we hadn't added any sauce at all. Next time I may consider marinating the ribs in the sauce first, because I truly did think the sauce was outstanding, I just wanted the ribs to absorb more of the flavor.

4 stars for original recipe, 5 with my changes... I took another reviewer's advice and boiled the ribs first. I also added about 4 cloves of minced garlic to the glaze and marinated the glazed ribs overnight. We took them to a 4th of July BBQ and they were the hit of the party! Sweet, sticky, and spicy good! We will definitely make these again.
