  • 1 slab boneless country style pork ribs
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce low sodium
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp vinegar Apple cider or white
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper optional
  • 1/2 onion small diced


  • Trim one slab of country style boneless pork ribs. Remove fat cap and cut into pieces following the cuts.
  • Mix in a smaller crock pot. 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup soy sauce, 1/4 cup ketchup, 2 tbsp honey, one tsp vinegar, one clove garlic minced, 1/4 tsp ground ginger, 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper and 1/2 small onion diced.
  • Mix in the pieces of pork. Cook on low for 4-5 hours. Remove meat and reserve the liquid for "gravy" over the meat and rice.
  • Serve topped with toasted Sesame seed and sliced green onion.


Pro Tips

  1. This is a smaller crock pot recipe. I used a 3.5 qt. Smaller is ok. If you use more than 5 qt, I suggest doubling the sauce and you might as well double the meat also.
  2. If you don't have boneless pork ribs, strips of pork chop or pork loin would be fine.
  3. I cut down the ginger and vinegar for our taste. Adjust if you wish.
  4. Serve on rice or noodles.
  5. This produces about 1 cup of sauce as written. Increase if you want more for your rice.
  6. The crushed pepper only adds a little heat. Adjust up or down for your taste.
  7. The salt level can easily get out of hand on a recipe like this. I suggested lower-sodium soy sauce and did not add any more salt.
  8. I like roasted sesame seeds and some slices of green onion.
  9. Good refrigerated 3-4 days. Good frozen for 3-4 months.
