"Good recipe. I usually make my ribs in the crockpot, and I still prefer that way. Next time I'll use foil to cover my baking pan to help with cleanup."

"My husband said these were the best ribs he's ever had!! I didn't find it that much work and will definately be adding them to our dinner rotation!"

"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."

"This sauce is wonderful! It was so good on pork ribs that we cooked a turkey breast in the slowcooker, spooned off the fat and liquid, then basted the turkey with half the sauce. We heated and served the rest like gravy. My son-in-law (who doesn't like turkey) ate seconds. Versatile, easy and delicious!"

"It's recipes like this one which has made Taste of Home practically the only food magazine/cookbooks I use anymore. This is excellent and very easy! My husband and sons loved it. As a home care nurse, I am always looking for simple recipes that taste great like this one, as I don't have a lot of time for cooking. Thanks, Anne-Marie for this "Blue Ribbon" recipe."
