Do you love ribs?  I do!

For some reason ribs always seemed to be something difficult to cook (I’m not sure why).  This delicious and easy recipe for Beer Braised BBQ Ribs changed all that.  Made using your favorite BBQ sauce and beer-it’s a high impact dish made with just a few simple ingredients.  I’ve even tried the same recipe using chicken instead–delicious!
