This turned out really well, but I added 2 T. freshly grated ginger root for extra Chinese-y flavor. More fun to eat if you cut in pcs. longer than 1". The third-across cut is an excellent idea, the butcher can do this with his band saw.



This was definitely a finger licking good recipe. I wanted something that was lighter then the traditional barbecue sauce. (Partly for a low carb diet.) It was great. I would stick with the low sodium Soy sauce. I didn't have any and figured it was just for health reasons that it was done with the low sodium soy. But it is just a tiny bit too salty with regular soy sauce. I also goofed and cut the ribs only into 3rds rather then individually. It was too late when I figured out my mistake. I was already browning them. But worked fine, I doubled the sauce and just cooked them longer. About 2 1/2 hours at a really low heat. This is a keeper recipe for me.

These were great! Be sure to use low-sodium soy sauce, I didn't and it was a tad salty. Brown really well. Turned out very tender.
