1/1 Photo of Sesame Pork Ribs

This is adapted from a recipe by Michelle in CA, from another board. It is easy to put together even if the list of ingredients looks long. You can double the recipe and freeze half of it. If you do that, don't sprinkle the sesame seeds or green onions on until you are ready to serve it. It can be reheated in the crock pot or thawed overnight and reheated in the oven or stovetop.
