Reviews for Molasses-Glazed Baby Back Ribs
"Can these be cooked in a slow cooker? The recipe sounds great!"
"Excellent on the grill. Looking forward to making them again on Memorial Day."
"not bad, but not spectacular ..still hunting for perfect rib recipe."
"Yes but I would slow cook them in an oven first. The flavour was excellent but they were not fall-off-the bone even though I bought fresh baby back ribs which you usually can't go wrong with. We were disappointed."
"I used a temp of 350 since there was no temp indicated...."
"I omitted the cola marinade & baked in low-heat oven for 3 hours; then basted with sauce for the last hour. Ribs were perfect and tasted great!! Best sauce recipe I've found."
"Hands down, the best ribs we've ever had. We'll be making these again soon. Fantastic!We did bake them in the oven at about 350 for 15 minutes or so before we put them on the grill."
"These were amazing! I'm always experimenting to find the perfect rib recipe and now I've got it."
"Wow! I loved these ribs! I've made ribs in the past, many years ago but gave up because they were always so tough. These have great flavor with the rub and were so tender and moist. This will be my rib recipe!!"
