I knew this would be great when I got home from work, and the house smelled so wonderful from it cooking all day. I added extra garlic, but otherwise made it exactly according to the recipe. The flavors mixed so well together, and the ribs just fell apart. I will definately make this again.

Ding,Ding,Ding!!!!!My fellow Zaar friends we have a winner here!!This is by far the very best recipe. I used Chicken..thighs and legs. I cut off all the skin and fat. Turned out nice and tender. Served with rice and a garden salad. Wonerful meal. Daughter loved it so she took the left overs and the recipe with her.

Man, was this good. I couldn't find boneless pork ribs so the supermarket people told me to take a pork roast and butterfly it and cut it into strips. I used 2 roasts that were 1.5 pounds each. I mixed all the ingredients the night before and let it sit in the fridge to marinate overnight. In the morning I dumped it all into our crock pot and let it cook on low for 10 hours. The pork just fell apart so it turned into pork pieces and sauce. We ate it over rice and my wife said this was "possibly the best crock pot meal I have ever made in all of existence." Her words not mine. This recipe has it all. It is super easy and has a lot of flavors so it's exciting to eat. Thanks, Sandy! We'll make this a lot.

Very, very good.....the sauce is delicious ...... When the meat was done, I removed it and took half of the remaining sauce and ran it through a food processor, and then added some flour and thickened it the crockpot. Served it over rice with the meat on the side....I'll be making this again and again I'm sure.......

Delicious, Made this for dinner last evening. I did make it on top of the stove, as I didn't have time to make it in the crockpot. turned out great. Tender, Yummy, served it with rice.

I have a similar recipe for sweet and sour that includes the same ingredients except for the tomato sauce and tomato paste. With ommitting these items I believe the sweet and sour taste would be enhanced. Next time I'll try that, but with the tomato products my family and I didn't care for it. Next time I'll also use boneless ribs, using bone-in ribs made the meat very dry. Thank you for posting the recipe though!

I followed the recipe exactly (I even bought 3lbs of "boneless" country style ribs). I added a little extra garlic. My family and I found it tasteless, not sweet, not sour, nadda. Not sure what went wrong but I won't be trying it again.

My husband loved this. I made it into a delicious sweet and sour pork because my ribs were totally falling apart. I pulled them out of the crock pot, removed the fat and cut them into chunks. While the ribs were out of the pot, I mixed up 2 tablespoons of cornstarch with 1/4 cup cold water and added it to the sauce in the crock pot. Switched the setting to high. When the sauce was thickened (10-15 minutes), I added the pork chunks back in , with a tablespoon of soy sauce. I served it over jasmine rice and garnished it with sliced green onions. It was delicious. I will make it again. I did add more than one clove of garlic, it needs about 4 cloves. I think 8-10 hours is too long, I cooked mine 6-7 hours and they were falling apart.
