I was a little disappointed with the flavor. For some reason this was a little too sweet for my taste. I think it would be improved with the addition of some liquid smoke and perhaps a little more chili powder. BTW since the chef said that this could be made with other cuts of pork...I cut about 1 1/2 x 4 inch strips from a pork tenderloin. I will make this again because I think a little fine tuning will make it a wonderful new way to cook those huge pork tenderloins I get from Sam's club so cheaply. Made for Spring PAC 2010

We really liked these! This was my first attempt to make ribs in the oven (it was to cold to bbq outside), and they turned out very good! This was easy to prepare, and the ribs turned out very tender with lots of flavor. DH said he missed the drippy sauce, but I liked them without that mess. Thanks for the great recipe andypandy...I'm sure we will use again!
