Ribs came out very tender and tasty. I did make a couple changes from reading other reviews. I used 1/2 cup of vinegar and doubled everything else. Also used brown sugar instead of regular sugar. I used country style ribs (about 2 1/2 lbs.) and they were done in 5 hours.

Very good and tender. I cut the vinegar back to 1/2 cup, because I thought the 3/4 to 1 cup would be tangier than I wanted. I used country style ribs and let mine cook all day.

My husband begs for me to cook these all the time. They are one of his new favorite foods!

Method easy. Sauce great. I just used short ribs because they are more meaty and I don't like paying for bones.

I didn't provide a rating because I changed a couple of things...I used brown sugar and only 1/4 cup vinegar. Without all that vinegar, I could have eaten the sauce out of the measuring cup before I even put it in the slowcooker. I made it for my husband for Father's day... For hours after he ate it, all I heard was "thank you, thank you ,thank you! I love you". After years of seldom cooking, his vast enjoyment of the first ribs I have ever cooked has inspired me to enjoy cooking again. :)

We used brown sugar and apple cider vinegar and they turned out great.~ Theresa

I think we like tangy, but all we could taste was the vinegar! I think it needed some brown sugar. This is not a keeper for me.
