I truly expected this recipe to be a joke and have plastic melted everywhere but instead I just had the most tender delicious ribs ever. I used brand name plastic wrap and the heaveiest duty foil I could find. Cool recipe!

My family loves this rib recipe. It sure doesn't get an easier than this! The only thing that I do differently is I use a large roasting bag instead of the plastic wrap. That way I don't have to peel the plastic before serving. Super yummy recipe!!

I am making these now, I'm a bit afraid of using plastic wrap, so I'm using Reynolds oven bags. For those of you who used the bags, did you put flour in with the bag? Directions say on oven bag box to add flour in bag to prevent bursting. I don't want to add flour if I don't have to. Thanks!

Do not be afraid of the plastic wrap, this recipe is legit. I cooked some pork ribs just like it told me to, and in 3 hours I had a some of the best homemade ribs I've made to date. Trust this recipe!!!

Definitely fall-off-the-bone tender. Easy and done in 3 hrs. We found removing the plastic wrap at 2-1/2 hrs then placing on grill with foil adds to the great taste and look. A+

This recipe was GREAT! I used previous reviewers advice and used an oven cooking bag instead of the plastic wrap. Came out soooo tender. I finally found a rib recipe to keep. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

I was pleasantly surprised by how delicious the ribs were! I used a turkey bag instead of cellophane (less mess and no melting!)and wrapped them around reynolds wrap foil.I didn't need the heavy duty type, or the larger foil, I just cut two big pieces to flip over and make an envelope with seams up. I made two racks of ribs (and two bottles of BBQ sauce)and kept in for about 3 hours. Still fell off the bone and was great! Used the Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ and husband was very satisfied with the ribs! Worth trying! I'm making for racks for Easter!!

The ribs were definiately falling off the bone but the plastic was melted all over the meat! We did pick and scrape but the little we sampled tasted good. Not sure what went wrong

Loved these! We tried and crossed our fingers on the plastic wrap. I went out and bought the Expensive kind... Reynold's Plastic Wrap and their Heavy Duty Foil. This was sooo simple! I used Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce (bought at WalMart) and it was great! Our meat was a bit fatty, but we will now be looking for better ribs for future dinners.
