I was trying to think of an Asian way to use some left over pork ribs when I saw this recipe. I thought it was very good, but my husband (who doesn't like soup) said I could make this for him anytime! We can't get Bok Choy here, so I just used cabbage I had in the fridge. Thanks for a delicious recipe!
