Crock-Pot Asian-Sesame Pork Ribs

READY IN: 5hrs 15mins

This is an easily assembled slow cooker recipe. I serve the sauce on the side, along with white rice and Chinese pea pods or sugar snap peas.

Excellent! My DH raved at how flavorful and tender the meat was. I actually put this together in my crock pot Sunday afternoon and refrigerated until Tuesday morning before work. I put the crock in the base and turned to low and let it cook all day while I was at work. What a heavenly scent to come home to. I loved that these are ingredients I have on hand (with the exception of the ribs) and can whip it up on a whim. I served this with Recipe #381017 for an extraordinary meal that was nearly zero effort after a long day at work. Thanks for sharing. DH has already said I can make this again soon :)
