Sweet and Spicy Barbecue Short Ribs


(5 votes) 3 5

Overall taste can be mild to medium to super-hot, dependiing on how much Tabasco you like to add to the recipe. Have plenty of napkins around. I experimented with this recipe for a family cookbook about 20 years ago. It is wonderful for a few or a gathering.
