When cooked: Saturday 18 November 2006
Which meal: Dinner
Which try: First
Missing ingredients: Mushrooms
Exchanged ingredients: Hua Tiow Chiew instead of Shaoxing, Kwong Chong Thye Standard instead of Best Grade.
Difficulty Level: 3
Others: The ribs were still not tender after the required time, so I cooked it for at least 30 min more.

Verdict: Brian loved the dish, said it replaces Coca-Cola Pork Ribs as his favourite. Eddie finished all 4 ribs. Sean finished his dinner. I found the taste all right, a bit diluted.
