Sesame Pork Ribs in the Crock Pot

Crock Pot Sesame Pork Ribs from 101 Cooking For TwoA great Chinese slow cooker dish. These Sesame Pork Ribs are tender and tasty for that change of pace meal. Who can’t use a easy Chinese meal?

This uses one of my favorite cooking for two meats, country style boneless pork ribs. Based on a Food.com recipe but simplified and  cut done for a more reasonable amount. The original was for 5 pounds. Nope… cooking for two here. You get some great taste here for very little work. Serve with rice and wait for the compliments.

Notes: An easy recipe to double or triple. We are not big ginger lovers in this house so some may find it a little low on ginger so increase if you love ginger.

    This looks great. I’m a big ginger fan myself but usually keep it scaled down since my husband is not… haven’t been able to sway him yet :)

      This sounds great. Could it be made stove top or in the oven? My crock pot is too big for five small boneless ribs. Thanks, Sher

      Stove top I don’t think so. I would think covered in an over about 325-350 for a couple of hours would work… Have not tired it. If you do please post results.

    These were really tasty. I got confused by the ingredient list….didn’t have white vinegar so I substituted Apple Cider vinegar, which is what you have pictured.

    These had a little kick that I didn’t expect (probably from the red pepper). Delicious!

    Thanks for the recipe!

      I did actually make it with apple cider but one of the recipes I was modelling used white and I did the write up a few days later and didn’t change it. Either should be fine.
      Thanks for the note.

      I really don’t know. We don’t do mushrooms due to family food allergies. I don’t know how they do in a crock pot. If you try it, please past a comment on how it went.
      Thanks for the comment and the rating.
