Tasty Pork Ribs

I like to serve these tender, country-style ribs over rice. The tantalizing aroma and zippy Cajun barbecue sauce are sure to make this dish a favorite at your house.—Michelle Rominger, Albia, Iowa

    Ribs need salt and pepper before adding the sauce. they tasted bland.

    Really good ribs. I popped mine in a 300 degree oven for a few hours. We really enjoyed them. A great way to make economy meat taste top shelf!!

    Delicious. Substituted barbecue rub for the Cajun then thickened the sauce with a little cornstarch just before serving. Yum!

    This is the second time I've made this. We really enjoyed it last time. I just brown on the stovetop and then bake for a couple of hours.

    This was delicious!!! I used maple syrup in place of molasses and a little less worshtershire. I read of one person who boiled the ribs for a bit first to remove extra fat, great idea! Cheap meat and it was great!!!

    I really enjoyed the sauce on these ribs! I accidentally doubled the garlic and I don't think it was overwhelming. One of the best BBQ sauce recipes I've tried.

    These were so easy to make and turned out delicious. My first attempt at ribs - and I will definitely make them again.

    Really good flavor!! I thickened the sauce with cornstarch/water mixture after it was all done and put the sauce on mashed potatoes. Yum!
