“This treasured 1950 recipe for ribs is easy to make and tasty. The garlic powder, curry powder and ground ginger make it a little different from the usual garlic ribs. You can adjust seasonings to taste. The original recipe called for one half of a small bottle of garlic powder; I have estimated the amount in the recipe. Great as an appetizer or serve with steamed rice for dinner.”

  4. Add the garlic powder, curry powder, ginger, and soy sauce.
  5. Stir together and simmer gently for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
