Hi ! Tried the ribs few days ago..they are so tasty that everybody finished to the last drop! A bit too salty though.. btw the wine in the marination refers to red wine ?

Glad your family likes the ribs. Wine refers to chinese cooking wine (edited).
If you find it salty, it could be due to different brands of ingredients used.
