Ribs have always been one of my favourite things growing up. I used to love all kinds of rib dishes, like breaded short ribs, rib tips, barbecued ribs, etc. It's a great comfort food and a dish that really brings people together. One of my favourite ways to eat ribs is with a saucey and sticky that really packs a good kick to it.
