I brought this recipe with me from Quebec after my husband and I were married. The rich maple flavor impressed my in-laws the first time I made dinner for them.—Anne-Marie Fortin, Swanton, Vermont

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 8, 2012

"These were outstanding ribs, especially considering the time involved. I joined this site just so I could comment. Truly unbelievable. I omitted/substituted ingredients here and there, but nothing that would greatly alter the overall product. I was very attentive to the basting, and then finished on about 400 degrees. I think this was key. Everyone raved and raved. A bit sweet for my taste, but no one else said a word. 6lbs of ribs went down quickly. Did it on a Friday night after a very tiring day and still found time to make rice and asparagus. Blew my mind that I could get ribs this good without using a grill."
