I made this marinade to use on country style spareribs and marinaded them for 24 hours. The flavor was excellent and better than any chinese retaurant and the meat was very tender; my family loved this. My son asked me what I marinaded the spareribs in this time, I told him I got anoher great recipe from Recipe Zaar. I can't wait to use this marinade on chicken wings, we love 5 spice powder! Thanks again for a recipe that will be a definate keeper.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all ingredients, except pork, in a bowl and mix well.
  2. Coat pork in mixture. I store mine in quart sized zipper bags, 2-3 chops per bag.
  3. Let pork marinade in refrigerator for a minimum of 1 hour. I marinate for 24 hours.
  4. Cook outdoors on grill until done. On my grill that's 4-5 minutes per side.
  5. They also cook well indoors on a contact type grill. I generally cook for 5-6 minutes indoors.
  6. Pork filled bags may be frozen with marinade and thawed to cook later.
  7. **Note - Marinating time is not included in my "time to Make".
