Molasses-Glazed Baby Back Ribs Recipe

Molasses-Glazed Baby Back Ribs Recipe

My husband grills up his luscious ribs recipe for our family of five at least once a month in the summer. The sweet-and-sour barbecue sauce is the perfect condiment for the moist tender meat. Serve it with other finger-licking foods like corn on the cob. —Kim Braley, Dunedin, Florida
