Here’s a shameless plug for a video I did. Created some damn good ribs in the process. Hope you give it a try.

    They really turned out good. I wish I had cooked up 2 racks because they were gone in no time. Let me know how they turn out.

    Mixing parkay and store bought General Tso's sauce and microwaving it to make a mop sauce is not something I would have come up with on my own, so thank you for that.

    I use to use the same ratio for my BBQ mop and it worked well. I found that when I used butter in the mop it caused the ribs to get pretty dark. You’re welcome!

    👍 Great idea.  Nice touch adding the scallions and sesame seeds too—that amps up Tso-ness,

    Yeah dark ribs aren't any good.  Nobody eats those, except my friends when they're really baked and have the munchies.

    Awesomesauce.

    Great production quality, you’re a natural!!!

    You should do a whole series of store bought sauces and parkay.  That’s the kind of cooking people want!!!

    Pete you might be on to something! 

    What kind of different sauces were you thinking of? Pad Thai ribs? Lots of potential. 
  • PeteSliverPeteSliver Posts: 113
    Any of the chick FiL a sauces would be great!!!

    Pad thai, raspberry chipotle, honey mustard, do a world tour!!!

    Well I think I’m going to do a test this weekend on some pad Thai and some honey sesame ribs. More to follow.

    Ha ha thanks. Yeah not much flavor out of the sesame seeds but they looked good. The green onions seemed a lot better than throwing a piece of sauced broccoli on top.

    I bought this last September for $14.77.  It tasted like Chinese take out version, so was really happy with it. Now it's at $20. Only downside was it a big bottle, eating up fridge space.

    Dupe, so may as well write something.

    Their Orange sauce was good, but didn't care for the sweet and sour version.

    Ryan thanks for the find. I might have to swing by Costco and get some.
