      Fabulous!!!! I used boneless beef ribs, which everyone knows are generally dry, but this recipe made them so tender and not at all dry! My 11 year old son who usually only eats noodles when we have Chinese food ate two ribs~Zomg Amazing~ I will make these regularly! Great recipe thank you for sharing <3!

      This is a good recipe. I had the butcher cut the rack of baby back ribs in half so that each bone would be somewhat short. This made the dish into finger food, or appetizer style. Otherwise, I followed the recipe as written except I sprinkled sesame seeds liberally on the finished product. Nobody raved about the ribs, and I sorta liked them. Nice, but no big cigar. Next time skip the 5 spice and add 1000 pounds of habanero sauce.

      Excellent flavor to these ribs. The only change I made was to grill them instead of baking and they were perfect. Thank you Daydreams for sharing the recipe.
