Delicious and easy. Takes very little time once the sauce has been put together. You can also prepare sauce in advance, freeze it and use it whenever you want to make ribs.

The sauce was excellent! To make my ribs more tender, I didn't boil them, I wrapped the ribs in foil sprayed lighty with "pam" and baked at 275-300F (depending on oven) for 3 1/2-4 hrs and then brushed the sauce on ribs broiling in oven (watching). Repeated this step 4 times. These ribs fell right off the bone. I sprinkled salt/pepper and garlic spice on ribs before wrapped in foil. Read More

This is fantastic! I've cooked it three times for 10 plus people everytime and they have all loved it. I've made a few tweaks: I add crushed red pepper flakes to the dry rub boil it for nearly two hours and add about 1/4 cup of chile paste to the sauce. Sweet and Spicy...and delicious. Read More

i have done this recipe now 4 times. I used red pepper jelly instead of the plum sauce. My next is 25# for a bbq.I dont boil the ribs. I sprinkle with garlic powder and put in a roasting pan with about 1 inch of water. Cover and bake at 250 degrees for about 3 -4 hours. Then drain them and put the sauce on uncovered basting about every 15 mins until the meat pulls away from the bones easily. You need to be patient and cook them until the meat does this. Read More
