Asian Style Boneless Ribs Fail -- Well, Sort of

I was so excited to find an Asian Style Boneless Rib recipe on Allrecipes.com the other night!  The Boneless Country Ribs were buy one get one free at our grocery store, so I bought two packs.  I'm not sure if I ever bought them before, so I needed to figure out what to do with them.

I found this recipe for Asian Style Country Ribs.

The directions said to put them in the marinade the night before.
  So, I started them on Tuesday night around 9:00 p.m.  I was tired, so I read the directions only up until the point where I put them in the refrigerator.  Then, I woke up yesterday, put everything in the crockpot and turned it on for 10 hours. This was after I looked at the directions for the time and temperature.

All day, I kept thinking how strong the smell of soy sauce was.  And then, I tried some and thought "Eeeek!  They gave this recipe 4 stars?"  Good Grief!  I think it's a little heavy on the soy sauce.  Then, later, when we were eating it, I told my husband, "I don't think this recipe was written right!  I'd definitely cut the soy sauce in half."  I even added water!  

We finished dinner, probably with much higher blood pressures because of all of the sodium.  I was cleaning up the dinner dishes.  Then, I had a flash in my mind. ~~~Maybe, I wasn't supposed to leave the marinade in the crockpot!~~~  Duh!  The word "marinade" didn't even register with me the entire day while I was cooking it.  

So, I went back to my recipe and finally read this part!
Well, there you have it!  Truthfully, if I would have cooked it right, I would have given it 5 stars!  It was just a little strong the (wrong) way I cooked it!  We also had some gorgeous stir fry veggies, bok choy and brown rice with it.
Have you ever "skipped over" directions in a recipe and had a "fail"?
