We usually prepare ribs on the grill. But the recipe is so good, you won't miss that smoky flavor if you bake these in the oven instead. Tangerines are a favorite of mine, but oranges work just as well.
My mother would agree that coming up with foods that a husband and 13 children all liked could be a real challenge. Each and every one of us thought these ribs were delicious. Now my own family loves them, too!
At first glance, this seems like an odd combination of ingredients, but the result is absolutely delicious. My mom made this main dish when we five kids were growing up. At the end of the meal, the table was surrounded by satisfied smiles and piled high with bare rib bones.

"These ribs are so simple to prepare," confides Denise Hathaway Valasek of Perrysburg, Ohio. "Just brown them, then combine with the sauce ingredients in your slow cooker. Serve them at noon...or let them cook all day for falling-off-the-bone tenderness."
