Asian Pork Ribs in the Slow Cooker

on August 17, 2012

These ribs are lick your fingers, fall-off the bone amazing!  They are one of my 6 yr olds favorites!  Here’s what I did:


  • 1 rack of  pork ribs (mine was ~13 ribs)
  • 2 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 cup coconut aminos
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 marsala wine
  • 1 tsp chinese five-spice blend
  • 1/2 tsp ginger powder
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 4 Tbsp lime juice
  • salt and pepper

Season the ribs with salt and pepper.  Place into slow cooker.  (I put mine in frozen).  In a bowl, mix together all the other ingredients.  Add to slow cooker and coat all the ribs.  Cook on low for 4-5 hours (or longer is fine, too!).  At any point, I usually cut the ribs apart and let them continue cooking so that the marinade gets on all of them.  You can do this from the beginning if your ribs aren’t frozen. ENJOY!
