These are delicious! They really hit the spot when you are craving barbecue! I grilled these instead of baking them. I grilled them for about 20 minutes, as I didn't want the sauce to burn on the ribs. I also decreased the amount of brown sugar to 1/3 cup after reading some other reviews. I thought it was just the right amount of sweetness for our taste. I will definitely make these again! I'd like to try them in the oven also.

These are amazing--they taste just like bbq'd ribs without actually grilling them! I did add about 3/4 tsp. liquid smoke to add that true bbq smoky zip! They really are easy and delicious and so tender that they just fall off of the bone and are packed with flavour!

We've been making this for decades and absolutely love it. We make this a bit differently: We skip the initial process of baking the ribs on racks, then we double the sauce, throw everything in a roaster, cover and cook until they are falling-off-the-bone tender. Yummy!

Excellent!!! Made twice so far exactly as written (with the addition of a sprinkle of cayenne in the sauce) and loved by all. Forgot, I also decreased the sugar to 1/2 c.

This recipe is fantastic although it was a little too sweet for my family's taste so on my next try I will cut the brown sugar down to 1/2 cup. Also, I put the ribs in the crockpot for about 5 hours instead of baking them--so much easier.

Very good, we've tried cooking the last 45 minutes on the grill or in the oven and both times had amazing results.

Too sweet for our taste

My family loved this recipe. I had never made ribs before, and wanted to do them for our Memorial Day meal. They turned out so tasty and tender and have been asked to make again next weekend by my mother in law, who said she loved it so much, she dreamed about them last night. My husband liked them so much, he went back for seconds. We poured a bit of the sauce over the rice to make it more yummy.

Did the ribs in my crock pot and they were excellent. The sauce is absolutey delicious. Agree with GregH3000 about skipping the soy sauce and using Bragg's Aminos. Not healthy or wise to use soy sauce. Great recipe.
