“Everyone I know who has tried this recipe has loved it. Being an "immature" cook, I wasn't too sure about mixing these ingredients but it makes for a wonderful taste and the ribs fall off the bones. My sister has made it with regular pork ribs and said they were good. This was given to be by a friend from memory. I did not write it down”
