These were delicious! I boiled them for as long as the recipe said and they were fine. They smelled a bit funny when I drained them, which put me off, but honestly, once that glaze is on and they're grilled, they tasted amazing, and they were so easy too!

We thought boiling the ribs initially sounded unapetizing, but gave it a go. WOW were we impressed. The end result was so tasty that we've now made them a few times for different guests and just for ourselves because they were so yummy. Can't wait to try them on the BBQ as we've only tried them over the Winter so far and so oven baked on a rack! Very easy to do, the kids love preparing them (& eating them).
