Asian Style Country Ribs

This was such an easy and tasty meal!  It will take you less than a minute to assemble the sauce ingredients and then maybe another minute to put the ribs in the crock and pour the sauce over the top! A great way to begin cooking my first week back to work!

We found my sauce to be too thin, but I think I've corrected that problem below.  I like to know there is sauce stuck to my ribs!  If you're a huge ginger fan, you may want to add more ginger.  I'm not a huge ginger fan, therefore, I'm very stingy with it!

Oh, and I had scallions all cut up and ready to in the last half hour or so in the fridge.  Guess who forgot about them?  That would be me!  They would be awesome with these!  I cut up 6 scallions on an angle to make them look pretty.

I think you'll find these a great alternative to BBQ ribs!

Asian Style Country Ribs

3-4 lb. Country Ribs (I used boneless because they were on sale.  Please feel free to use whatever kind of ribs you have or are on sale!)
1/2 cup Soy Sauce (I used low sodium)
1/2-3/4 cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp. Garlic powder
2 tsp. ginger
1 tsp. sesame seeds
2 Tbsp. Red Wine Vinegar (Or if you have Rice Vinegar, use that.  I did not)
6 scallions (approx.) cut up (not pictured because I forgot :()

Mix together the soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic powder, sesame seeds and red wine vinegar.

Next, in your slow cooker, place the ribs.
Pour the sauce over the ribs.

Cover and cook on LOW for 7-9 hours or on HIGH for 4-5 hours.
The last half hour, add some scallions.....unlike me who forgot!

  1. Have you ever add some honey to make it thicker ?
    I would add some scallions too ! Yummmy

    Sounds like Sunday sinner for us !

    Thanks again for the wonderful simple fast & easy recipe !

    Hope your first week back to work was a great one for you

  2. looks and sounds delicious!

  3. Silly Ramblings, I have not added honey, but that would be yummy! And funny you mention the scallions.....I had some all cut up and ready to go in the fridge to add the last half hour and forgot! I will add that in above! Thanks for reminding me....again! LOL

    And thank you, my first week back went well! Now, to survive the first week of kids.....LOL

    Tamara, thank you!

  4. Do you think this would be good on pork chops instead of ribs?

  5. Alisa, I'm sure it would be delicious!

  6. Just made these tonight and they were delicious! Although I still had problems with the sauce sticking to my ribs. I took the bones out and stirred up the meat in the sauce and let it cook for 30 minutes and that seem to do the trick. Very yummy! Sharing with my friends on FB!

  7. Just made up the sauce tonight to get these cooking tomorrow. Question on cooking time, tho - I only have 1-3/4 lbs of boneless ribs. Would it be safe to cook on low a shorter time, maybe 5 hours?

    1. No, Sarah, sorry! You can cook them on HIGH to cut down cooking time, but no matter the quantity, they need to cook for the same amount of time.

    2. Thanks for letting me know! I had to go out this morning, so I put them in before I left. My house smells delicious already!!

  8. I don't have sesame seeds in the house. Do you think it would make that big of a difference in taste? This sounds good. Also I have the Red wine vinegar and the rice vinegar. Which do you recommend more? Thanks.

    1. No sesame seeds is fine. Rice vinegar will give it more of an asian flavor, so I would go with that.
