Excellent! A very simple tasty unique recipe but I would recommend the following: (1) Although the receipe indicates "6 servings" one and one half pounds of ribs with the bone in is really "2 servings". Adjust accordingly. (2) The sauce is fabulous but the original recipe just doesn't give you enough. I would triple the amounts listed so you have plenty of sauce to serve over the ribs. It's no problem the ingredients are simple and cheap. (3) The sauce will burn easily so if you like to grill the ribs like I do over medium-high heat baste the ribs only during the last 5 minutes of grilling. Read More

The sauce was the best part of this recipe. I found the meat not to be as moist and tender as I would like. I found I needed to cook the ribs longer than the time recommended in the recipe. Read More

I changed the cooking method for this recipe because I wanted to cook my country style ribs in the slow cooker. I was concerned that the cinnamon would become too strong with the long cooking so I left it out but tossed everything else in the slow cooker turned it on and left it all day. I thought it tasted really good. The mustard cuts the sweet of the cranberry sauce perfectly. Read More

These tasted GREAT. I did bake the ribs instead of grilling though and it took longer than 60 minutes but the ribs were REALLY thick ones. I would double the sauce next time as what I had was just enough to pour over the ribs for cooking. And the flavor gets better in the leftovers (if you have any)! Read More

My boyfriend and I just started to cook more at home and we found this recipie to be very tasty and easy to cook. But 45-60 minutes seemed like a long time for ribs. We took it off after about 30 minutes. We also doubled the basting sauce recipie for 2 lbs of pork ribs and we had just a little bit left over. Everything turned out great! Read More

These turned out really good although not as zesty as I like pork ribs to be. I felt like it needed vinegar or something. I also had to thin the sauce with a little orange juice to make it more brushable. I think this would be a great glaze for pork roast maybe with some herbs... Thanks for the recipe. Read More

Love Cranberries!I buy several bags of fresh when available and freeze for future use. Fpr this recipe I boiled up approx 1 c fresh Cranberries removed enough berries before straining to sprinkle over meat after cooking. Straining left me a nice clear glace which is what I was after. This is also totallt yummy on chicken breasts and rotisserie chicken - place glaze on chicken about 30 min's before cooked - also makes a delic marinade Read More
