Country Style Ribs

This one isn't tried and true yet. As a matter of fact I just found it in my files from 2002, in a file that I didn't know I had. You see, I lost all my files last summer when my computer crashed and burned. The geeks at Best Buy were able to go into my dead computer and retrieve some of my files and put them on discs for me. I uploaded a bunch of them not too long ago, and 'found' a bunch of recipes I forgot I had! This one sounded similar to the sauce on some of the dishes you get the Chinese food places in the mall.

2 tablespoons Soy sauce
1 small Onion: finely chopped
2 teaspoons Fresh ginger, minced
1 Garlic clove, minced

4 pounds Country ribs, cut into individual portions

Broil the ribs,turning once, until browned. About 10 minutes. Transfer the ribs to the slow cooker. Stir to coat the ribs with the sauce. Cover and slow cook until ribs are tender, 5−6 hours on LOW. Transfer the ribs to a platter and cover with aluminum foil to keep warm. Skim the fat from the surface of the sauce. In a medium saucepan bring the sauce to a simmer over a medium heat.

Pour the sauce over ribs and serve immeadiately with delicious mashed potatoes.Print Friendly and PDF
