Country Style Ribs

These country-style ribs were a family favorite back when I was a kid, and I always get compliments on them. I often make the sauce the night before for convenience the next day. —Bethany Mott, Provo, Utah

    The meat was very tender and delicious. The sauce was way too runny, one reviewer referred to it as "broth" which I think was an apt description. I sprinkled the meat with BBQ seasoning, used tomato sauce instead of juice (juice would just go to waste in our house), increased the brown sugar to 1 C, and added some additional bottled mustard, and some BBQ seasoning to the sauce. For serving, I just put out a bottle of BBQ sauce to go with the meat.

    Very tender but would have liked more flavor in sauce.

    Sauce was good, meat, not so great. I need to start buying my ribs at a butcher shop. Anywhere else, it's always tough in places and gristly in others. I'll try this again, using good meat.
