I just happen to find 3 pounds of pork ribs buried in my freezer and whipped this recepie together is about 20 minutes. I added about two cups of smokey bbq sauce and did what one of the other reviews said by adding all the sauce and covering it until the last 15 minutes. Flipped it half way through as well. One word review: Unreal!!! Cheers mate!

This was so good. My husband made it. He doubled the recipe and put all the sauce over the ribs, basted them while cooking. He also put aluminum foil over them, took it off 15 minutes before they were done. They were sweet and tender. We made this twice in the past week. Thanks!!


My family loved this. The only change I'd make is to boil the ribs longer. I say 20 minutes instead of the 10 recommended. I feel this would make the meat more tender. I started to follow the previous reviewer and covered it in the beginning. After 20 minutes when I went to baste, I noticed the sauce was still thin and worried about it remaining that way during the whole baking process. So I uncovered it for the rest of the time. The sauce thickened perfectly and was very tasty. Remember to turn ribs and baste every 15 min or so. I will definitely make this again.
