Awesome recipe. I tried it again using brown sugar instead of white; OMG it was even better. The red pepper paste is great. It adds a subtle taste and keeps the ribs from being too sweet. Booyah!!!

This was a nice tasty change of pace for our household. Instead of marinading and broiling, I heated up the matinade and threw it in the crockpot with the meat on low for the better half of the day. It was very good, and I served it with a pot of rice and steamed veggies. The sauce was great over the rice, just something a little different. I was quite impressed. Give this a try, you won't be disappointed.

Excelent. I forgot to add da ginger. But was still good. Also, I used a whole head of garlic, jus cuz I like garlic. The half local and half japanese soy sauce is a good idea as sometimes the japanese style is too strong.

Almost identical to my usual recipe except I add a little rice wine to the marinade.

My husband and I were in California in Oct/Nov 09 and we had some Hawaiian BBQ with white rice and macaroni salad. My husband was on a mission to make Hawaiian BBQ at home. These ribs were great!

This recipe is amazing !!! Everything the others have posted about it is true. Everyone I made it for loved it, they were gone quickly and I ended up making more the following weekend because they were so good. I even made them in the oven bcuz is was winter. I cooked them covered for 3 hrs @ 350 degrees, turned out great. I combined white and brown sugar and used powdered red pepper not paste, it all worked out wonderfully. I highly recommend !!!!
