Not a fan of Horseradish. Can you make this without the horseradish or replace with something else?

Hi there! Yes, you can make this without the horseradish or replace it with your favorite hot sauce if you want a little kick. Enjoy!

After browning the ribs on top of the stove, can you put the sauce on and then finish cooking them in the oven? Thanks!

Yes, you can brown the ribs on the stove and finish cooking them in the oven. However, it will take a little longer this way. We recommend covering them with aluminum foil and cooking them in a 325-degree oven for 2-1/2 to 3 hours or until fork tender. Enjoy!
