Chinese Country-Style Pork Ribs

 Chinese Country-Style Pork Ribs
“These ribs are tangy and tender. The Chinese-style glaze gives them a different and unique taste.” Jamie’s original recipe called for the ribs to be baked, but we found we could prepare tender ribs even faster by starting them in the microwave. Jamie Wetter - Boscobel, Wisconsin
