My mom made these tender ribs for special Sunday suppers when we were growing up. A few common ingredients are all you need to make the zesty sauce that coats them. My family's eyes light up when I bring a plate of these ribs to the table, and company never suspects how easy they are to prepare. —Yvonne White Williamson, New York

"These are excellent - so tender! I did make a few additions - brown sugar, chipotle chili pepper and liquid smoke (and I forgot to add the hot pepper sauce)."

MY REVIEW

"First time made exactly as recipe directed. Found to be on the bland side. Made 3 more times with a few modifications each time. Last batch was to everyone's liking.

Brined ribs 4 hrs in water with 1/4 cup salt & 1/4 cup sugar. Rinsed & patted dry before putting in baking dish.
To sauce added:
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
Upped hot sauce to 1 teaspoon
Baked uncovered 45 mins at 300?
Put sauce on ribs, covered dish with foil & baked 1-1/2 hrs at 250?
Uncovered dish, basted ribs with sauce & baked 45 mins
Baste ribs & broil 3-5 mins
When making any style of pork ribs in oven:
Low & slow is the way to go."

"The meat came out fantastic, I agree that the last step of cooking for 30 minutes was not needed, However, the sauce recipe however is bland even when I added the brown sugar. I ended up pouring bottled sauce on the ribs 15 minutes before I took them out of the oven."
