Fantastic. Came home from work to a wonderfully smelling house! I got a pot of rice going and finished the last couple of steps in just minutes and a delicious dinner was on the table. I made as is, though I didn't have quite enough teriyaki sauce and substituted tempera dipping sauce! It worked, this is wonderful. Thanks Dancer, I'll definitely be making this again.

This had a great rich oriental flavor, A couple of substitutions: 2tbsp of orange zest intsead of the peel, and I used 1/2 cup of commercial orange juice. For what it's worth, the teriyaki sauce I used is Yoshinoya's. I think that this recipe would also work for pork, like boneless ribs,

Very good ribs - we used short ribs with bones but the same cooking time and they were very tender and fell off the bone. Thanks for sharing!
