I love the molasses. It gives such a rich flavor. I orriginally had 10 hours on here for cooking time, But recently changed it to 6 due to over whelming reports that 10 hours was too long for most folks.
- 6 lbs pork spareribs, cut to fit crock pot
- 3⁄4 cup ketchup
- 1⁄2 cup soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon ginger powder
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon molasses
- 2 teaspoons garlic, minced
- Put ribs in the slow cooker.
- Mix in a bowl the rest of the ingredients. And pour over the meat.
- Cover, and cook on low for 6 hours.
- Take the meat out of the crock.
- Pour the juices into a sauce pan. Boil until reduced. pour over ribs. Serve.
Mmmmmm! These were awesome! I shredded the meat, mixed it in the reduced the sauce and served it over egg noodles. VERY good, the whole family loved them even the picky guy : )
Fabulous flavor, read reviews and changed molasses to 1/2 cup. Served with rice and coleslaw. My family raved about it. Can't wait to make again.
I did these for 6 hours and followed the recipe as written. The ribs really soaked up the flavors and were super tender. The only problem that I had was that I boiled the sauce from the crock pot for 45 minutes and couldn't get it to reduce. I'm not sure why it didn't reduce and I was definitely bummed that I couldn't serve it with the ribs because it tasted pretty good before I cooked it. I also think I'll follow another reviewers advice and add more molasses next time so the flavor doesn't get lost in the soy sauce. I'll probably make these again but next time I'll try them on the grill and baste them with the sauce as they're cooking.
