Reviews for Lip Smackin' Ribs
"These were very good. The sauce was excellent! Just have to be careful not to cook them too long. I cut the recipe in half, and they were slightly overcooked after only 2.5 hours in the crockpot."
"Just ok to me."
"Turned out wonderfully! I used thyme instead of savory though just because that's what I had on hand."
"These were just okay. Nothing to write home about. WAY TOO SWEET! I do however wonder where a person can find the recipe for the veggies that are pictured in this plate! They look AMAZING!"
"I halved the recipe because it's just me. These are so good! The sauce was wonderful and the ribs were tender....perfect cut of meat for this recipe."
"Very tasty and easy to make. As other reviewers have noted, this recipe makes more sauce than needed. I am freezing the extra sauce to use later for pulled chicken sandwiches. I pulled the remaining pork and will have pulled pork sandwiches tomorrow. My husband gave this a thumbs up. The only changes I made was I used two tsp. of pepper instead of three and I also used some homemade roasted tomato sauce that I had on hand. I will definitely make this again in the future."
"Delicious, tender, and easy to make. I couldn't find dried savory at the grocery store, so I used a Southwest smoky and spicy blend instead, which gave it a nice kick."
"For BABYEDIE dried savory is an herb. I normally prefer fresh leaves snipped from growing plants which give a more intense flavor, generally, but the dried can be found in the spice section of the store (although in some stores small packets may be found in the ethnic food section or small packets of fresh in produce.)This is a good recipe."
"This recipe is the greatest! All though I have the recipe somewhat different. Instead of ketchup, I use a small bottle of barbeque sauce, I add sliced onion and sliced green pepper as well. I also add some crushed garlic. I then brown the ribs on the grill for a few minutes on all sides to give them the barbeque smoke taste, then put them in the crock pot on low. If you need to cook for a large group (8 lbs. and over), I use a large Nesco set on 225 degrees for about 3 to 4 hours. Yum!! Enjoy."
