This is a recipe I have made for many years. It came from the 1962 souvenir edition of the Better Homes and Gardens cookbook.

This was a request recipe - Myrna has served these delicious ribs for years - and you don't have to have a grill! My sister-in-law tried this and loved it too - she pointed out that there is no sugar in this recipe.
