Recipe by Ang11002

If you enjoy a glaze-like sauce, remove the lid to the crockpot when the ribs are done. Turn the heat to high (if it isn't already) and simmer until thickened.

Yum, yum, yum! I had boneless ribs, but bone-in would have been more flavorful. I just used 8 oz. beef broth because I thought 14 oz. might make the sauce too watery. I figured I could always add more liquid if needed. Because it didn't cover the ribs 100%, I stirred the meat once during cooking to make sure all the spices got into the sauce. It was GREAT! I did add a pinch (actually about 1/4 tsp.) red pepper flakes. I thoroughly enjoyed it, but hubby did say he got 1 mouthful that was too hot, so I must not have stirred enough. (I did not think that it was too hot overall, but more stirring was definitely in order.) I'll be making this again for sure. I did grate the ginger rather than mince it and just measured by my best guess as if it was to be a minced amount. (The grated amount was probably about 2 tsp. because grating reduces the volume a lot.)
