“I got this recipe from another site when I searched for stuffed spareribs. It appears to be an easy-pork-recipe site. This is a very tasty dish and I will certainly make it again. I requested this recipe and was waiting for Lennie to search one out. Meanwhile, I either had to find one or freeze the meat.”
