My father, who had worked on the railroad, use to make this dish for special family occasions. After he passed away, our family discovered that no one else had this recipe! Then one of my school friends mentioned Pasa de Shuto and shared her recipe with me. I experimented with it until it tasted just the way my father made it.
A friend shared this recipe for marvelously flavorful pork years ago. It really sparks up a barbecue and has been popular whenever I've served it. I guarantee you'll get many requests for the recipe.

My husband is a meat cutter at a supermarket and likes to find new ways to smoke or barbecue meat. Several years ago, he discovered this recipe for pork ribs covered in a rich tangy sauce. It was an instant success with our family and friends.
