    My entire family thought these ribs were excellent! I actually made slightly larger portions and served it as a main dish. Goes well with baked potatoes and salad.

    this is a five star recipe, have made it several times now and always a hit. The only change I made is to use fresh garlic.

    We make this recipe quite often. It is as good or sometimes better than the honey garlic ribs we get from our local chinese restaurant.
