I have to say this is the BEST Dry Garlic Rib recipe ever! I followed the recipe word for word, and it turned out even better than most I have tried in restaurants! I added extra garlic, just because I love garlic so much! Thanks for sharing, I will be making this again :) and its so very easy and fast! 5 Stars from me! :)

GREAT RECIPE! My first time doing dry garlic spareribs..the stuff in take-out is fatty and not very good! I had 3 lbs to make, and followed Chef's lead about the salt. I used 1/2 salt and 1/2 powder. AND pulled off some fat!MMMMMMMMMMMMMMM the BEST! I work as a nurse and had abit leftover so..of course decided to share. I gave out the recipe like MAD! Thanks!!!
