This is one of the Zaar recipes that I adopted. I hope to make this soon as it looks like a dish my family would enjoy. I’ll edit the recipe accordingly if needed.

May not be Chinese but very tasty just the same.
I made this with country style spareribs. Given the kind of ribs I used, this recipe made them fairly tender. The flavor was not bad, but it reminded me more of an Italian dish rather than a Chinese dish. I probably will not make these again.
My DH enjoyed these ribs and the only thing I would do different next time is double the sauce so he would have some to dip his ribs in.
