I had never had Ah-So sauce before I had met my husband. If you have never tried it I suggest you do. It's sweet and sticky and awesome on pork. We applied the sauce to the ribs before putting them on the grill. Yes, we have a gas grill! If you read some of my previous posts we did not have a gas grill for a bit and I was not a happy camper about it, but all is well now. Anyway, grill those babies up and apply more sauce as needed. You would think that the star of the show was the pork but that is where you are wrong. The fried rice is amazing! I could make a whole recipe and eat it all in one sitting. It is one of my husbands favorites and is welcome when I suggest making it.
I found this recipe in a Rachael Ray cook book and I really do not drift far from the recipe. I normally do not put in peppers but I actually had a half of a orange pepper so I did this time.
