Step 1

Cut ribs into serving portions. I cut them every 2-3 bones.
Place in a large pot.
Add crushed garlic, seasonings and chopped onion.
Pour apple juice over top. If not completed covered in liquid, add some water to cover.
Place lid on pot. Bring to a boil.
Once boiling, reduce heat and simmer 1 & 1/2 to 2 hours.
Remove ribs from pot. Discard liquid. Allow ribs to steam off some liquid before putting sauce on.
Cover both sides of ribs with the sauce of your choice.
Either broil in the oven until desired crispness then flip over and do the same to the other side or finish on the BBQ. (I prefer BBQ).
