Just realized I never reviewed this recipe even though it's been ages since I made it. This is really good. It has a nice spice taste to it w/out being overwhelming. The only thing I did differently was I used about 3 tbsps. lime juice after it was done cooking before I served it and I used crushed garlic (about 3 cloves worth) rather than garlic salt. Great recipe. thanks for sharing!

I took a chance and just dumped every ingredient into the crock pot and cooked on high for about 4-5 hours. I skipped marinating and was unsure about what kind of chili sauce to use, so used 1 Tbsp. of Heinz chili sauce and 1 Tbsp. or a bit more of Thai sweet red chili. It was certainly not too hot. In fact, there was very little heat at all. I used 3 fairly large boneless country ribs that were partially frozen still. I put all the other things on top of the meat and just left it alone until it was done. Then, I shredded the meat and mixed it with the sauce. It was not very watery, but still sort of saucy. I think this could be a great freezer in-a-bag crock pot meal. In fact, that's how I will make this next time. It was tasty - kind of similar to curry.

"Unbelievably awesome!" (to quote my husband). The spices are wonderful. I'd suggest adding the marinade to the coconut milk (or discarding the marinade and making an additional batch of marinade and adding that to the coconut milk). Tastes great with carrots and a final garnish of chopped spicy peanuts. Thank you for a non-traditional pork ribs recipe!

Delicious! Used a 1.3 lb. pork loin roast, sliced 3/4" thick, but otherwise followed the recipe. So easy - I can see simmering this in the slow cooker, with good results, though I did mine on the stove top. Thanks for sharing!

I pan seared this per the instructions and then put it into the crockpot on a busy day. The result was a tender, tasty, and flavorful pork roast. I had expected it to have more of a Carribean flavor though with the ingredients. Thank you for sharing your recipe.
