lazy question about asian markets/cooking

Russel Shank | Dec 23, 2009 10:13 PM

I see a lot of recipes, like some Pad Thais, that call for little pieces of chinese spare rib (the neon red appetizer kind you order off the take out menu.)

Anyway, is there a packaged prepared version of this? I shop at lots of little and big asian markets, but haven't seen it (haven't really looked hard or asked though.) It doesn't make sense that so many recipes would expect you to cook it fresh separately.

Is it available packaged? What's it packaged like?
