Tenderize ribs so the meat pulls easily from the bones. First, place serving-size portions on a rack in a shallow baking pan. Cover tightly with foil and bake at 350° for 1 hour; drain. Then finish cooking as recipe directs.
"BASTING with the honey-and-oil glaze seals in the goodness of these delicious ribs as they bake to a golden brown. They can be prepared in the oven, or on the grill in a foil packet to keep the meat juicy."
My grandmother gave me this recipe 40 years ago. It was a favorite at all our family gatherings and church socials. Today my children are grown and off on their own, but whenever they come home to visit, they still ask me to prepare this memorable family dinner!
I love maple syrup and so does my family, so I gave this recipe a try. It's well worth the effort! I make these ribs often, and I never have leftovers. With two teenage boys who like to eat, this main dish is a real winner.—Linda Kobeluck, Ardrossan, Alberta
