It took me a while to find ketjap manis, but I'm glad I did. I think the sweetness made a big impact on the taste of this dish. The ease in preparation was a delightful surprise as well. Both hubby and I enjoyed it a LOT. In fact, we ate all but one small piece of the meat at one meal. I've put this in my favorites, as I will be making it again. I served it with basmati rice and stir fried celery and cashews with 1 minced Serrano chile. I skipped the Thai chiles. The combination was great. Note: I saved this recipe as a favorite and later tried putting all the ingredients into the freezer together. Last night I put the frozen bag into the fridge to thaw and into the crock pot this morning. It cooked it on low for about 6 hours, and it turned out GREAT - even better than when cooked fresh. This is certainly a winning recipe!

These were surprisingly good! I didn't have ketjap manis so I used Bragg's Aminos and an extra TBSP of sugar. I served it with Indonesian Yellow Rice topped with pineapple tidbits and steamed broccoli normandy. We both enjoyed this meal very much and I'm actually making another batch right now.

I love this recipe. It melts in your mouth. I was not able to find the ketjap manis so I used equal parts soy sauce and light molasses. I served it over brown rice and will try basmati rice next time. I steamed a broccoli/cauliflower medley to served with it that was very complimentary. It's going to be a staple in my house.

This is the type of recipe that gives you that lovely warm taste in your mouth that almost has an after glow- Not too spicy but just right.I cut the recipe back to 4 ribs, removed the fat, cooked on low for 6 hours - perfect. Served with whole wheat noodles,sauce over noodles, green beans with cherry tomatoes and steamed cauliflower Wonderful dinner thanks Sue

Oh Sue....this is now my new favorite way for country style ribs! The sauce is SO flavorful and delectable! I ended up cooking the ribs on low overnight as I startted them too late and was NOT going to stay up until 12:30am! They turned out perfectly moist and fall apart tender. This was SO good over the jasmine rice! I am thrilled that I have 1 1/2 large ribs left to make myself dishes for lunch! Thanks for sharing this treat Sue!
