I found this on a New Zealand Pork site, but added extra ginger and 5 spice when I made it.

Though the cooking time was off for me ( 1 Hour) and definately done these were GREAT !! Love the marinade on these as they were gobbled down in a hurry. Very Satisfying recipe. Made for Recipe Swap #48.

these were a 10 star recipe. They were so good very juicy and i will be making them again. loved the maple syrup and five-spice powder. I had no problem with the cooking time. Cooked for just over 1hr. Made for Edition 5: MAKE MY RECIPE—a game of tag! in Aust/NZ forum.

NIce tasty ribs. I left them marinate for 2 days. Though you might want to watch the cooking time. Mine were a bit dry after 1hour, but they weren't very meaty either. Good for small kids too. Definately a cook again.
