    1. Place ribs in a large stock pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and cook for 15 minutes.

    3. Cover and cook on Low for 6 to 8 hours, or until ribs are tender.
    4. If sauce is too thin when cooking time is done, drain sauce from ribs and pour into a saucepan. Combine the cornflour with the cold water then stir into sauce and bring sauce to boil. Cook until the sauce has reached your desired thickness.

    Stuartt, the 1/4 cup of water is for the cornflour thickening at the end. I have added a second set of water to the ingredient list to be used for the boiling phase.  -  01 Jun 2015
