2 . Meanwhile , in a large saucepan , combine the remaining ingredients . Bring to a boil . Reduce heat ; simmer uncovered , for 15 to 20 minutes or until slightly thickened .

Broil the ribs cover under medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes or browned , turning and basting occasionally with remaining sauce .
This is not your common barbecue sauce on these ribs . The tomato sauce is sweetened with honey and flavored with rum . Everyone will love it . You can make this dish a day ahead and reheat it .
This recipe is also good with the small ribs , you can put them in a slow cooker and serve them as an appetizer .
