      This is incredible and perfect for fried rice. I used trimmed country ribs with the same cook time and have no complaints nor do I suggest changes. Perfection! Thank you, thank you.<br/><br/>Update: As I make my fried rice in 3 cup (cold rice) batches, I made my final batch reducing my normal seasonings and replaced with about 1/3 cup of the remaining marinade. A pleasant alteration. Again, thank you "Dancer."

      My husband liked this, it just wasn't the flavor I was going for. I really wanted to love it but there was something about it I just didn't like. I made it and cut it up to go in lo mein, it wasn't quite the 'take-out' flavor. I might try it again and tweak the spices a bit. I'm still giving it 4 stars because my husband says I'm nuts not to like it so I guess it's just me.
