    This sauce was wonderful! It was so easy and you can prepare it ahead of time because it cooks in the crock pot. I cooked country style pork ribs in it (also in the crock pot) for the 12 hours and they were great. I saved the sauce and cooked some extra ribs a few days later. It's sweet but spicy/tangy at the same time. I would definitely recommend it.  -  07 Jul 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Oh this was perfect. This only thing I did different because we like things with a little more spice was add a whole habanero pepper to it while slow cooking! I will continue to use this recipe!  -  02 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Great sauce! The slow cooker makes it easy to make and convenient. I ate it on everything from meats to sandwiches to scrambled eggs. This recipe's a winner!  -  10 Jul 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
