"This was figerlickin goood gotta try it ..Love"
"The recipe worked out perfectly in regards to the actual flavor, rub and glaze. I modified it by basically rubbing it with the molasses rub mixture. Then I placed it on a deep roasting pan with a rack and placed the ribs in it with a small layer of water. I then steamed the ribs for 2 hours and replenished the water every 30 - 45 min. Afterwards I followed the section of grilling it and the end result was a hit at a party. :)"
"This is a great recipe! Here's an oddly simple recipe that's better than you'd think. Made by a friend of mine, please watch and share Http://howsthatdone.blogspot.com/2011/07/how-to-make-mamaws-grilled-cheese.html?m=1"
"Please review accuracy of nutritional info. Sodium count is beyond the pale; calories, fat g's are suspect, too. We enjoy Asian grilled food, but are not suicidal. Notice the cute little boy in a baseball cap who has no choice. Please respond . . . thanks!"
"I made these ribs yesterday and everyone that ate them loved them! This is an easy recipe to do and very tasty!"
"Much too much sodium in this recipe!"
"This looks like a great tasting recipe and easy to make. Anyone who knows how to cook and has a special diet would know how to switch some of the ingredients to make it meet their own needs."
"Please, please tell me what in the world you people DO actually eat???? You complain about fat, sodium, carbs, everything that is in a typical meal. If you want healthy recipies, please go to one of the MANY sites that offer nothing but grass and fake ingredient recipes and leave the rest of the normal world alone to enjoy good food."
"I thought the calorie count was very high till I made them and realized, like most grill recipes, you don't use nearly all the sauce, and that is wehre most of the calories are. They're very good!Ann Johnson"
"The salt is very very high. I do have high blood pressure. But, I will probably still try this recipe because I love Asian food and ribs. I will try to cut some of the salt out of the recipe by using low sodium products. Barbara C."
"Sounds delicious and a good rib recipe is always inviting! I would like to try this recipe.Christine M."
"If you can't top them then stop complaining...Karen B from MD"
"U R picking the winner. Don't vote for it if thats the way you feel"
"I can not believe Taste of Home would choose a recipe like this. The nutrition content is unreal. Come on we want healthy recipes."
"Are you sure the sodium content is correct??? definitely not a heart-healthy meal."
"GARAY: Wow, you have been critical and bitter over every winning recipe. What happened, yours didn't get picked? If you don't like the recipes, don't make them. Keep your comments to yourself. They're in the finals because of votes so don't go putting blame on the website."
"It's hard to believe that in this day and age with so many people having health problems do to obesity you have as a finalist a dish that has 47 grams of fat."
"I am voting for this recipe because the asian sauce sounds very appetizing. I also like to pre-cook my ribs in the oven. I'll be trying this recipe real soon.Good luck!"
