"I love these! I don't even eat BBQ ribs anymore because of these, maybe one day I'll branch out but these are too good!!!!!"
Serving Size: 1 (50 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 4
"I really liked this recipe, it was very tender and tasty. Instead of boiling the ribs on the stovetop, I let them sit in the crockpot all afternoon in water, seasoning and a little vinegar (to help tenderize). The rest of the recipe I followed exactly (except that I had to omit the sherry, as I did not have any on hand). The ribs were finger-licking good! Thanks!"
"Awesome ribs! I didn't boil them but basically steamed them in a covered broil pan with water at 325 for about 2 1/5 hours then slathered them with the sauce and broiled for about 20 minutes to make them crispy (pouring out the water first). They were perfect and the sauce was excellent. A nice change from standard BBQ ribs. Thanks for sharing!"
"This is truly yummy and as an asian it sure beats all the other ribs I have ever eated. So thanks for sharing....my kids think I am an awesome cook now..."
"Used this for a pork roast and it went over better than almost anything I've made before!! OMG this is great!!!!!!! Served with rice."
"These were inhaled. I didn't want to fuss over these, so I did as another reviewer and cooked them in the crockpot over low for about 6 hours. They were literally "fall off the bone". AND had amazing flavor. I didn't have any dry sherry but that is the only difference in ingredients - everything else was just right. Everyone at gamenight thinks I am some great cook, but I just follow great recipes like these that make me look really good. Thank you for sharing this. I will make these over and over."
"i swapped in a little filipino jufran banana hot sauce instead of half of the ketchup and skipped the sherry. boiled the ribs on fairly low heat for 4+ hours due to not coming home as soon as i expected. the ribs turned out so great i even mentioned them in my blog (although it's not at all about cooking). "
"This was just great! My family loved the spicy asian flavor. We will definetally make again. We felt like we had gone out to dinner!"
"This is really good!!! Definately a hit with the family :) Thanks."
"Delish! Made these last night and DH and I enjoyed them very much. The only ingredent I had to purchase was the Hoisin sauce. We raised our first pig last year and I had two packages of ribs. I will use this for the second pack and probably for some of the shoulder steaks as well. It is finger licking good. Thanks for posting a very easy and tasty recipe, Leslie"
"These were great. I used frozen ribs and subsequently boiled the ribs for too long; I think 2 hours would have been sufficient. I didn't have chili sauce, so I just used a little extra catsup and some cayenne to spice it up a little. Yum. :-)"
"Deliscious !!! I added more garlic and 1/4 t Chinese 5 spice powder and it was absolutely wonderful !!!!"
"Very tasty, the sause is outstanding. I used pork spare ribs instead of beef and doubled amount of garlic. Thanks, it was great. I'm planning to make it again next week."
"I agree, "finger-licking" good! And so easy to combine the sauce ingredients. The garlic and ginger flavors really come through. I used baby back ribs and my only complaint is that I wanted more! Thanks for a recipe I will be using often."
"Jessica, I have to confess that I cheated... we were out at an afternoon B'day party and were to bring guests home with us... so I threw everything into the crockpot (NO boiling, just meat and sauce) and left it on for the 5 hours that we were away... It was good timing coming home, we were starving for something savoury to nibble as the only things to eat at the party were overly creamed cakes, but didn't want anything too fussy, so this with a litte salad and chicken on sticks went down a treat. I didn't make too muchsince this was an experiment and my small amount was *just* beginning to get too dark after 5 hours, and since the meat was falling off the bone, I grabbed the salad and next minute it was all gone ! I will play around with the recipe just a little as "more garlic" was muttered by more than one full mouth, but your recipe was a hit and it will be a regular feature in our house from now on. Please see my rating system: a wonderful 5 stars:) Thanks !"
"Oh very good!!! My family's only complaint was ....I didn't make enough!!!!!"
"Oh,Wow,these were so good.Finger licking good."
"Great recipe! I followed all the steps and replaced only the fresh ginger with a tablespoon of ginger powder and it still worked great. This is quite an authentic Chinese spare ribs recipe. My one problem was that after the baking, the ribs were a little dry. So, I guess I will have to reduce the baking time a little next time. Will definitely be using this recipe again. Thanks!"
