Fall Off the Bone St. Louis Ribs-Connie's

Connie Ottman


This is the way my mom and Nana cooked their ribs. We got so excited about eating the ribs, so delicious. Finger lickin' good. It's easy, breezy to make but you have to plan ahead for this recipe as it's in the oven over four hours. It's a fix it and forget it recipe. Low and slow, Enjoy!
