For those of you that are like I was before this recipe, and don't even know what you are looking for at the store. Here is a picture for you. The look like skinny little steaks kinda. This is just 2 lbs, the recipe calls for 4 lbs, so I halved the recipe.
If you have never bought liquid smoke before...here is a picture for you.
This recipe couldn't be easier...just mix, simmer, then pour the sauce over the ribs before they go in the oven. Adam ate the leftovers for dinner tonight and said they were just as good if not better than 2 nights ago! You really need to give this one a try, and don't let the dumplings scare you, they are super easy...my kiddos loved them. But if you really didn't feel like doing them, try using mashed potatoes instead.
