    I tried this recipe for a casual dinner with our good friends. I love using the Crockpot as it allowed me to get the main ingredient ready with little fuss. The variations were that I cut back on the soy sauce (about 1/2 as we are very sodium conscious) and therefore cut the sweet ingredients so as to keep the balance. I also always brown the meat on a skillet to lock in the flavor. My guests really enjoyed the pork which was fork tender along with the onions and au jus.

    My boyfriend is a cook and this recipe even blew him away! The flavor was fantastic--I might use a little more red pepper next time because I like spicy food but the sweet and savory flavors soaked into the ribs really nicely. I also used some water to thin the marinate a bit and served over orzo. Great recipe

    We've been making this recipe for years (it's in a cookbook I own) and we love it. I don't feel the need to change a thing. Most of the ingredients are things I have on hand all the time, and they are very easy to throw together. The ribs are tender and flavorful. I serve them with brown rice and veggies and the kids always ask for seconds! Yum!

    This made a really good sauce that was not too sweet and had a little tang to it. I subbed boneless/skinless chicken breasts for the ribs and when the chicken was done I turned the crock off and tossed in some peppers and onions that had been cut up. I let it sit on the counter for a while so the vegetables could soften just a bit but still retain some crunch. Removed everything from the crock and poured the sauce in a pan and thickened the sauce with a little cornstarch. Served it all over rice and had a nice Sunday dinner with very little effort. Thanks for sharing!
