An Asian-inspired orange-flavored relatively simple pork rib recipe using easy-to find, simple ingredients. Servings are based on a recommended 4-oz. meat serving. Most will find these ribs too delicious to hold themselves to this quantity.

I made this recipe with saffron rice maybe a year ago, cutting down the recipe to the 1.3 pounds of boneless ribs that we had on-hand. Also used dried ginger- still amazing! Now whenever I'm at a loss for dinner, I can make this easily- use meatballs, use whatever meat you want and just bring the glaze together. Works beautifully.
