This is such an easy recipe! We make these two ways, fist choice is fully cooking the ribs ourselves, or second choice is buying fully cooked ribs at the store.

It is all a matter of time.

We love ribs... but I have to say... we really love fried ribs!

This is what we have game day, Christmas Eve, other special occasions. My 7 year old grandson Gavin, wanted this for his birthday last year... we made them.. but he could hardly eat them because his baby teeth were loose! He asked for it for this birthday coming up too... lol!

We sometime double or triple the batch (my son-in-law can eat a rack by himself!).

Give it a try, it impresses guests... and it is so easy!
