Many thanks to you Pixie these were beyond delicous! I did make a couple of changes, I added about a teaspoon of chinese five spice powder when simmering the ribs and omited the salt and the gingerroot as I had none on hand. I also added two cloves of garlic to the sauce. These were absolutely fabulous we will make them again and again. Thank you again!
Delicious-prepared as written, no changes needed for us. Thanks *Pixie*!
