I have just acquired a slow cooker and I am experimenting with it. Here is a recent success - an Asian confusion spare ribs recipe for the slow cooker.


Pork Ribs - 3 lbs - cut into large 4 to 5 large pieces
Chinese Spare Rib Sauce - 4 tbsp
Vietnamese Hot Chili Sauce - 1-2 tbsp
Mirin - 2 tbsp
Sushi Vinegar - 2 tbsp
Shallot - 4 - thin slices
Olive oil - 2 tbsp

1- Broil the ribs on a roasting pan for 25 mins
2- Drain the fat
3- Marinate ribs with the sauce mixture overnight
4- Saute' shallot in olive oil until golden brown
5- Spread on top of ribs in the slow cooker.
6- Cook 6-8 hours on LOW.
7- Serve with rice or green leafy vegetables.


I do not have any pictures of the finished product because they are all gone as soon as the ribs are done. So, there you have it!
