I made this in oven as the recipe says and the ribs were not tough at all - super easy to shred - meat was falling apart in my hands. Delicious!!
oh i forgot to add that I also added some baby bellas to the onion mixture and I think it was a great addition and added some more depth to the overall flavor
I do not recommend using the pork spare ribs, they were VERY fatty and if you can believe this they came out VERY tough and dry. I must add however that I did make this recipe in my crock pot from the part where you were normally put it all in the oven.
The sauce was amazing and I will be using it in the future but probably with pork butt (and again in the crock pot) I served it with some cheesy Gouda grits and it all went together very deliciously.
