“For the best taste prepare the sauce a day ahead to blend flavors --- although I have 6 servings listed for these ribs, my DS and DS could eat the whole thing just between themselves they are that delicious! I have made this recipe using side ribs also but I suggest to boil them first for about 20 minutes before cooking them in the oven for side ribs, I have to say that back ribs are better --- I always most always serve these ribs with my Kittencal's Famous Coleslaw --- you will *love* these ribs!”
