My husband found this recipe on Facebook & suggested I try it! There was a lot of grease in the sauce in crockpot, so I took a fellow JAP friends (Noreen) advice, which is the last step. Great idea! They turned out pretty good for the first time ever making spareribs!( took some to my mom the next day& she said"mmmmm,mmmmm,mmmmmm! Lol!) Already have a few tweaks in mind for next time.
