  1. Wow! These were really good! I was nervous about baking them uncovered but they turned out flavorful and juicy. I used less sugar due to dietary changes that we’re implementing and left all other ingredients as is…utter perfection! I paired them with broccoli and homemade shrimp fried rice. My husband couldn’t stop raving about how delicious these ribs were. This has become our new go-to barbecue rib recipe. We plan on using the sauce on other meats. I’m looking forward to finally saying goodbye to store-bought barbecue sauce. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!
