READY IN: 3hrs 15mins
Recipe by CookingMonster

Mom made these ribs, as long as I can remember. Very tasty with rice. Although I have usually done these in the oven, I imagine you could make these in the slowcooker.

This is delicious. I made this today for our dinner and put in the slowcooker.I also added a few veggies (carrots,celery,onion and green pepper and mushrooms) and added a dash of sesame oil. It was delicious. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
