These are DEVINE!! I make them all the time. I usually don’t cook them in the oven or reduce the sauce and they are still amazing. I do skim the fat off the leftover sauce before spooning it over the ribs when serving.

These are amazing, very simple recipe with fantastic results, the only thing I did differently was marinade over night, not sure it will have made any difference to the taste though.
