    Use Asian Rice Vinegar, in a pinch wine, malt or apple cider vinegar works. Watch out for White Vinegar (use sparingly) and don't use Balsamic. Interesting idea to use Duck Sauce. I would think home made version using a 1/2 plum sauce and some apricot or Peach preserves would compliment. Consider using about a Tbs of crushed ginger match sticks and 2 garlic coves. I personally like a little tarragon and basil to add the herbal sweetness. This recipe can be scaled up to use as a all purpose cooking brine.

    We think this receipe is great and make it often. Instead of the sugar I added 4 tablespoons of duck sauce. What a great taste! Also did this with chicken wings and everyone loved it. Thank you

    A very tasty treat. I also cooked this in the crockpot and it worked out very well. Next time I'll try to thicken the sauce a bit, although even as it was, I liked it over rice.

    My mom used to make this 1,2,3,4,5 ribs for me when I was a kid in Hong Kong. I think this taste a little different than hers because she used chinese (red) winegar instead of white vinegar. However, this is definitely a 5 stars. I actually put the ribs in the crockpot and cook it high for 4 hours before I serve it. The taste is excellent and the meat falls off from the bone.My husband and kids all love it. The favor is so good. I don't think we need more favor to it unless you want to increase your blood pressure! Anyway, thanks for the great recipe!
