Why brown sugar? We’ve tried molasses in our ribs recipe but found that the molasses made our sauce really think. Adding brown sugar allowed for the sweetness of the sauce without it being overpowering. Love a sweeter BBQ sauce? Add another tbsp of brown sugar. Don’t have mango juice on hand? Try pineapple or orange juice. The key to this baked ribs recipe is flavor, slow cooking and ingredients you have on hand. We always find that your favorite recipes are ones you can make again and again because you have the ingredients on hand, they are easy and most important – they taste great.
