Asian Style Boneless Ribs Fail -- Well, Sort of

I was so excited to find an Asian Style Boneless Rib recipe on 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"?
