Joy’s Sweet Pork Ribs

IMG_8613

Growing up, my best friend’s Mom often made these ribs when I was over for dinner.  I normally do not care for sweet and savory, but these ribs are absolutely delish!  One of my favorite dishes.  This is not a typical “Dinner on a Dime” recipe, as ribs are not usually a budget friendly item, but if you can find them on sale, they make for a great dinner the whole family will love.  With the 4th of July on the way, this is a great dish for a family picnic.  You can easily double the batch, or make it a bit smaller, but either way, these ribs are much cheaper than taking the family OUT for a rib dinner.  So splurge, and have yourself some tasty ribs this summer!

We have them a handful of times a year as a special treat, and this time my husband had requested them for Father’s Day.  How could I say no, as these are one of my favorites as well.  I normally would pair them with rice and a nice salad, but alas, it was Father’s Day, and the hubby wanted his famous baked beans, which will post tomorrow.

Serves 6 for about $3.00/serving
