chia, thumbs up! Well, I came home to fix the ribs and found that my husband had already broiled them. So I put them in the pan and followed the directions, except I just simmered them in the sauce about 15 minutes, to let it cook down. Oh, so good! I wasn't able to find anise seeds, but when I find them I will make this again. The sauce was so good, I think I will try it on some tofu! Thanks for a truly delicious recipe!
