    Bay Laurel's Note:

    From This is a Todd Wilbur recipe from "Top Secret Recipes." He says it is an appetizer on the menu but I used it as my main course when I made it.I have never been to a P.F. Chang's and I have never ordered spare ribs at an asian restaurant but maybe I will next time just to compare. I was pleased with the taste and the texture. I am sure I got more for my buck too:) Enjoy!!

      Nice sauce. Different. I feel though, that the method which is boiling and then frying are quite radical methods which only toughen meat. The same thing could be done if you make the sauce and put it over the ribs and bake in the oven at a particular temperature.
