From my Rival cookbook. This one is different... No ketchup!


  1. Cut spareribs into 3 inch pieces.
  2. Mix soy sauce, ground ginger, and cornstarch until smooth; brush over spareribs.
  3. Place ribs on rack of broiler pan. Bake in preheated 425 oven for 20 minutes to remove fat; drain.
  4. Combine remaining ingredients in crock pot; stir well.
  5. Add ribs. cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours.

This was so easy to put together and turned out very tender and tasty. I used boneless country style ribs. The only change I'll probably make the next time is to use a little less ginger. That's a personal preference but I'll be making this one again for sure.

Wonderful! Rich, savory little shortribs with a dark sauce to soak the rice. What was above the broth at the end of cooking had a nice shiny glaze to it. We used it as a appetizer, and it went away quickly. Made for the Photo Forum Crock Pot challenge, August 2008.
