    These are AWESOME!!! My boys went crazy over them. They were soooooo tender and flavorfull. We put BBQ sauce on the side to dip them in but I'm sure they would be just as good if cooked with it on. Can't wait ot make them again this summer, THANKS!! - 4/16/09

  • Was a bit skeptical, but made these as listed adding a bit of paprika and chile powder and omitting salt. Seared in oil and then put in crock pot for 4 hours on low. OMG they were fantastic! Added bottled sauce (Honey barbecue) but they were great without. A keeper:) - 3/29/14

  • Omitted the salt but substituted chicken bouillon for the water. It was pretty good. Wasn't falling apart tender after 45 mins, so will have to either bump up the heat or simmer longer. Everyone loved regardless. Will be eating this one again. - 7/30/12

  • This technique is an excellent way of cooking country style ribs. I thought they were extremely bland when cooking with just water, so I started using beef stock instead, and wow! so much more flavor! I suppose a vegetable stock would be pretty good too. - 7/27/11

  • If you're on a low sidium diet, you to need to cut way back on the salt. I used 1/2 of the called for amount and the meat was too salty. Otherwise, this dish is yummy! - 8/9/10
