Jin Dou Spare Ribs

Tried cooking Jin Dou Spare Ribs for the first time. I'm not a great fan of spare ribs (not much meat, just bone) but Jerome is. So Jerome liked this sweet & sour side dish. I served this with a simple steam toufu on beansprouts and white rice. I had to resort to using fingers to eat the spare ribs & ended up licking my fingers clean of the Jin Dou Sauce. Finger lickin' good? Hmm...
