Clipped from a magazine and saved. This has an Asian flavor to the ribs.

Excellent! I made the sauce exactly as directed (but without sesame seeds--none in the pantry that day). I used baby back ribs and they were tasty, tasty! Will definitely make again, maybe with a little bit more red pepper flakes. Served them with fried rice and mixed baby vegetables.
