    I only had 800g of pork so I halved all the other ingredients, then halved the sugar again. Turned out very nice but I will probably leave the sugar out altogether next time. Hoisin sauce is sweet enough for my taste. Added some chilli powder.  -  12 Nov 2017


    Flavor was good but the ribs themselves were fatty, I may try again with a leaner cut.  -  27 May 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
