    EdsGirlAngie's Note:

    With the flavors of coconut, brown sugar, soy sauce and cilantro (and plenty of shallots and garlic), this is an unusual pork rib sauce. It truly stars on the grill, but the oven method is delicious also, as well as broiling. Prep time includes marinating overnight.

      These are just out of this world good. I used country style ribs and we grilled them. I did not cook the sauce in a pan instead we used it to baste the ribs towards the end of the cooking time and it worked out perfect, I actually wanted to just eat the marinade as I was preparing it. I think it would be excellent on chicken too.

      I have never enjoyed ribs more in my entire life! I used boneless country style ribs, I did not steam them first just let them sit in the fridge overnight and grilled them on indirect heat in our Weber. They were so flavorful, the entire family was going crazy over them. I heated up the marinade and served it over white rice. I made one addition and that was some crushed red pepper flakes. Excellent recipe, thank you!

      Thought I rated this already! I made these back on Feb 18th.. I remember b/c my sister & niece left that day, longing to try them! They are simple, easy but needed just a bit more zing to them.. maybe some peppers?? Otherwise, I really loved them and plan on making again this WEEK to BBQ with other things!
