I cooked these tonight. It was simple and the work involved was little. I threw in the oven for the 2 hours, took them out let them soak in the sauce I made for 15 minutes then grilled them for 12 minutes. They were delicious and very tender. Just as I was hoping they would be.

For those asking about "Stan's Ribs"... It was in 6/98 issue & on page 95 in the 1999 TOH Annual Recipe book. The recipe is called "Stan's Smoky Ribs". We liked Stan's recipe a lot. You simmer the ribs on stovetop first & then grill them for 8-10 mins. Stan's recipe also includes Molasses.

After almost three hours of baking marinating and grilling, these ribs were dry and tough! I was extremely disappointed!!

Over all taste was good but not great. I will add a rub next time. This is a great recipe to start building your own taste. Thank you.

This first time I made this recipe every one raved. My son said this is the only way he will eat ribs. I have tried making it twice since then, but the ribs are so dry it is awful. Does anybody have suggestions on how to cook pork now that the meat is so lean?

Would add a little pepper to the sauce - other than that, I really liked this recipe.

I have used this recipe from TOH for years, and lost the old magazine so I am thrilled to find it online. I make the sauce for brisket as well.

One of my best recipes that I got from TOH years ago was called "Stan's Country Ribs" and is almost the same as this recipe. Great recipe!
