"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 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."

"Tasty! To help with the fat, I put the ribs in crockpot, let them cook for a few hours, pour off the fat and then add the sauce. Works for all my pork recipes."

"I thought these turned out terrific. I could not find the bone in ribs, so bought boneless, which my husband preferred better anyway. Next time I will trim more fat before the cooking, can't see the point of the slow cooker if I have to boil them before cooking! The flavor was delicious and we ate them all week long. Great recipe!"

"Remember to boil the ribs for 10 to 15 minutes to help reduce the fat level. I do this ( for 30 min) for the bar-b-que. Works for the slow cooker too."

"My kids, husband, parents and sisters love this recipe! We have even tried it with beef instead of pork since the pork it SOOOO fatty. Sauce is perfect and the meat always just slides off the bone."

"scrambledwithcheese, you must have done something wrong. I made these today for my family for valentines day and they just devoured them. Especially my husband and son-in-law. Sorry, they were great to us.

"My family really liked them. My ribs were very tender but firm. I enjoyed the sauce. My kids aren't much for barbeque and this was a great balance for them. My Husband had seconds. Great for when the men are doing field work and dont come in to eat at the same time the kids eat."

"This was really terrible. The ribs come out like mush in a watery, flavorless sauce. What a waste!"
