    The Flying Chef's Note:

    I made this to go with some braised chicken wings the other night. So you may want to up rib amounts if serving as is and not with other dishes. This amount would serve 3-4 as a starter.

      Oh my goodness! This recipe deserves more than five stars. The ribs were exactly as the recipe title implies, "wonderfully tender". Frying them in the oil gave them the perfect crispy-brown texture while retaining their moisture. I only made one variation in the directions. Instead of cooking the sauce in a separate saucepan, I drained the oil from the pan and added the sauce to the pan to coat the ribs. Yummy, yummy, yummy! DH enjoyed emensely, literally licking his fingers. Thanks for sharing this recipe, which will be a definite "keeper" in our household! (Made for AUS/NZ Recipe Swap #42)

      Very good ribs, very tender. I used the whole ribs, but made as written. Made for Make My Recipe.
