"These ribs were a hit at a BBQ diner I attended recently. The host was serving a bunch of copycat recipes and this one was on the menu. This can easily be made gluten free bu using gluten free Worcestershire sauce."

Put ribs in a large pot with enough water to cover them. Bring water to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 1 hour or until ribs are fork tender.
Mix all sauce ingredients together in a medium sauce pan and bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer uncovered, stirring often, for 30 minutes or until slightly thickened.
Heat broiler. Line broiler with foil for easy cleanup.
Place ribs, meat side down, on broiler pan, brush with 1/2 the sauce and broil 4−5 inches from heat source for 6 to 7 minutes.
Turn ribs over, brush with remaining sauce and broil 6 to 7 minutes longer or until edges are slightly charred.
NOTE: The host did not broil these as directed in the original recipe, she grilled them over direct medium heat while brushing them with the sauce which worked perfectly.
