My mom, who does not like sauces on meat said, and I quote. 'You can make this any time.' Wow... I didn't change a thing and it tastes wonderful! You can use this for any sweet and sour dish you need. Thank you!

These are the best! We were all licking our fingers while we ate these ribs. I'm also going to try this sauce on other things like chicken and pork chops. Thanks bikelap9 for posting this keeper. We will be making these often.

This was GOOD! We all really liked it and my daughter mentioned it definitely tasted like sweet n sour from a restaurant. I'll definitely be trying this again and trying the sauce with chicken. YUM!
