  1. been making these for years and years – i even use thick cut pork chops – and always a winner – big time – d0uble the sauce – you need it – to pour over rice or mashed spuds my fav recipe in the world

  2. my previous neighbour and good friend – Irene (rene) jenner – was friends with one of your group- when her and george lived back east – she talked kindly of you all – and she taught me lots – thank you

  3. In the recipe book, it says to parboil for 30-45 min and then to place in shallow dish and bake for an additional 3 hrs. Won’t the ribs be overcooked? Should I do one or the other, or are both fine (ie: follow the recipe as in the book)?

  4. All my kids now use this sauce on nearly everything just like mum.
    This is the easiest and best Sweet & Sour sauce ever. Thank you ladies.

    • Hi Janice, beef back ribs would be tasty, but would require much longer cooking time to become tender. We have not tested this recipe with the beef option. You might want to look for another beef rib recipe with a similar flavor profile. Happy cooking.
