This is great, and much easier than I expected. I was in a hurry and barely got the 2 hours marinating time, and I will let it sit even longer next time, because I think longer would get even more flavor into the meat. Made for Fall 2011 PAC game.

Wow! Taste almost exactly like pork spareribs you get in the chinese restaurants, delicious! I marinated the meat 24 hours because I started them marinating too late in the evening, and had to work the next day. It still worked out well.
