"My Mom's longtime recipe that she learned from my grandmother who has long passed on. Combines soy sauce, sugar, vinegar, dry mustard, garlic, as well as a few other simple ingredients to make a delicious sauce for sweet and sour cut ribs. Great over rice! Some say rice and this sauce is their favorite food! A Lechner family tradition!" — HOWITZER

pork spareribs, cut into bite size pieces
These ribs were terrific! I made them a bit differently then the recipe said to, but they turned out great!!!! Instead of going from parboil/fry/oven, I just threw all the ingredients together to make a marinade, and put in the fridge for a few hours...(I also didn't have any dry mustard, so I just added a squeeze or 2 of prepared mustard) Then I put the ribs and marinade in a glass baking dish and threw them in the oven @ 325 till they were done. VERY VERY VERY YUMMY!!! Thanks for the great recipe HOWITZER!
This recipe is good but not great. I have had better before.
I was looking for a different flavor for some country style ribs (boneless) I had on hand and thought I'd try this out. I cut up the meat into bite sized pieces, boiled for 1/2 hour, drained and then followed the recipe being sure to brown the meat well. It was absolutely delicious! I used rice vinegar as it didn't specify what type and served over white rice. Both the boyfriend and I just loved it, he would have preferred a bit thinner sauce to mix into the rice but I thought it was fine. Best sweet & sour we've ever had. This is going in the recipe box and will be repeated again and again!!!
UPDATE!!! I cut some pork loin chops into bite sized cubes, shook in salted, peppered flour, browned in oil & then added the liquid with one addition, about a teaspoon of freshly grated ginger. WOW! That brought it to an all new level of delicious!
I put everything in the crockpot, even frozen pork stew meat. Turned out great!
this recipe was really tasty and really easy but I must say I didnt follow the recipe totally. I mixed everything in a bowl and after my meat was cleaned and seasoned I poured the mixture on top and baked slow at 300 degrees it came out outstanding will definately try this again with pineapple chunks!!!
This will be my new rib standard recipe! The dish turned out wondefully...moist meat, and yummy flavors. I did make the following adjustments: less soy sauce and water, used brown sugar instead of white, and used rice vinegar. The sauce thickened up nicely with the use of slightly less liquids.
Very good recipe. I added green pepper strips, pineapple chunks, a little celery, cored chopped tomato and sesame seeds for color. This is a KEEPER. Thank you HOWITZER.
i followed the recipe to the T and it came out great. one of the best recipes for spare ribs!
