"My daughter turning 14 has requested this for her birthday dinner. I just logged in to email the recipe to Nana since she's making the birthday dinner this year. It was an easy, yummy, instant-favorite! I used grape jam instead of plum."

"I followed the recipe just as written and they were good. I did not think they were amazing, although they smelled amazing all afternoon as they were cooking, but they were good and tasty. The entire family ate them, even the 2 and 5 year olds. Definitely worth the effort to make."

"Ribs were so tender and not dry at all. I did drain the juices, but kept the onions with the meat and then poured on the BBQ sauce and jam. Very easy and delicious. Thanks, Kimi for a very good recipe."
