We had some boneless Pork ribs left over from last nights BBQ. So I can't rate the cooking of the ribs. I rated the sauce only. I found very tasteful myself. Now the old guy I live with said to much vinegar for his taste. So next time I will try the mild rice vinegar instead, then both of us will be happy.

Although the cut of ribs we used ended up pretty wretched, after one taste of the sauce, Ron & I looked at each other & said 2 words: "Wings. Tomorrow." A most excellent & versatile sauce we will make again & again. MANY thanks.
