I have more than just a sweet and sour pork recipe, check out more recipes at the end of the page.
This recipe is a keeper. If you are in the mood for some Chinese food, this is one you should make.
You may also substitute chicken for this recipe. It's delicious.

PREHEAT oven to 400 degrees. Season and bake ribs for 30 minutes to brown. Drain fat. Cover with the sauce and bake another hour at 350 degrees; basting occasionally. Ribs should be cut in individual pieces before serving.
