"These were so good. I'm not a rib fan but I would make these again. They are easy to make and the sauce is excellent!"

"I am actually preparing to make these a second time. It was wonderful & easy!!! I actually did this the night before. I followed all of the directions except placed them in a 9x13 pan then poured the sauce over the top, the next morning I transferred it to the slow-cooker. I also used Country-style ribs. It was delicious. This recipe is going into the rotation."
