I created this sauce 45 years ago when I adapted a recipe I saw in a magazine. The original called for much more oil. I usually triple the sauce and keep some in my freezer to use on chicken , beef or pork. —Barbara Gerriets of Topeka, Kansas

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 26, 2013

These ribs came out so tender and I know I've had problems with dried out country style ribs in the past. I did drop the temp. to 325 and baked for 1-1/2 hours, then topped with sauce and followed another review and did 20 minutes covered, uncovered and basted 20 minutes and basted 20 minutes. I think that last 40 minutes uncovered as long as your basting regularly (and turning) gave them a more solid outside texture and not a mushy texture. We will definitely make these again and I'll watch for the sales on these ribs which I've ignored for many years.

Prepared the sauce at night, the next morning, put everything in the slow cooker on Low before going to work. Great flavor, not too sweet or too spicy. Meat just falls apart. Family loved it!

These are the best. The sauce is simple to make and very tasty. The first time I made them I replaced the cover after each 20 minute basting and I thought they were a little on the soggy side. I wanted something more like what you would get in a restaurant. So when making them after that, I put the cover back on only for the first 20 minutes. I then removed the cover and basted them, baked for 20 minutes and then turned them, basted again and baked them for the final 20 minutes. The ribs were a little firmer (still falling apart) and the sauce was thicker and stuck to the ribs better (like in a restaurant). Really great like that!!!!
