I must admit that at first I had reservations about this recipe but it's 'rib season' so I tried it. My son who is a painfully picky eater gobbled this down. He said it was 'boss'. I took it to a church function and it was a big hit. A different twist on an old favorite nice change of pace. Yummy. Read More

Ribs were tender- but we didn't care for the aftertaste. Perhaps the horseradish we have in the house is a little more potent than most. I also simmered them in apple cider vs apple juice. Read More

this recipe is so good! i left out the horseradish worcesterhire & garlic salt. i used sweet baby rays bbq sauce. it didnt need the extra spice. also i grilled them on the grill. they were so tender and moist. they were a big hit with everyone who tried them. i've made them 3 times already and always get requests to make them from my picky daughter who loves them. Update: I've made these many times now. Love them. A little tip: I put the barbecue sauce in a small/med deep bowl and dunk the ribs in with tongs. So much easier than brushing. Read More

Incredible! With the unforgiving weather this weekend, grilling wasn't an option and my tastebuds wanted ribs. I think this recipe rendered some of the tastiest ribs I've ever made even though it's a boiling/oven method. It's a no-brainer to make and a "keeper"! Just may cut down on the amount of BBQ sauce the next time as there was too much. Read More

YUM! Followed the recommendations to use less barbecue sauce (I used one regular sized bottle and that was plenty). That was the only change I made. These ribs were the best I've ever made grilled or in the oven. So easy! You can do other things while they are boiling on the stove and then toss them on the grill and in a few minutes they're done. I am already sharing the recipe with friends! Thanks! Read More

My family said "Awesome" and even I did my share of licking my fingers and eating an extra large portion. My daughter suggested that I send this to her sister away at college. So on parent's visiting day for freshman these ribs will be going to Delaware. Read More
