I am always looking for a really good rib recipe. I also like to use my crock pot. I actually made this the day before, brought them to room temperature and then finished under the broiler. Enjoy!!
- • 4 lbs. Circle B Ranch pork ribs or Country Style Ribs
- • ½ cup soy sauce
- • ½ cup ponzu sauce (if you do not have ponzu sauce, use an additional ½ cup soy sauce + the juice of ½ an orange)
- • ½ cup packed light brown sugar
- • 2 Tbsp. rice vinegar
- • 6 cloves of garlic, finely grated or minced
- • 1 2-inch piece fresh ginger, finely grated or minced
- • 1 tsp. Sriracha or hot chili oil
- • ½ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
- • 2 Tbsp. water
- • 2 Tbsp. cornstarch
- • Scallions, thinly sliced, for garnish
- • Sesame seeds, for garnish
- Grease the inside of your crock pot with a non-stick spray or oil. Add in the ribs. Whisk together the soy sauce, ponzu sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, garlic, ginger, Sriracha, and chili flakes; then pour over the ribs. Cook on high 4-5 hours, or on low for 7-8 hours.
- When ready to eat, remove the ribs from the pot (they will be fall-apart tender) and place them on a baking sheet. Preheat your oven to broil.
- Pour the sauce into a pot. Whisk together the cornstarch and water, and pour it into the sauce. Whisk the sauce over medium-high heat until bubbling, and then baste the ribs in the sauce. Broil the ribs for 2 minutes or so, until bubbling and slightly caramelized. Serve garnished with sliced scallions and sesame seeds. You may want to serve this alongside rice or your favorite vegetable.
