Asian Style Boneless Ribs
5lbs boneless pork ribs(often called country style)
2 medium onions, sliced
2 medium bell peppers, chopped in about 1/2 inch pieces
1 can crushed pineapple, undrained
4 cloves garlic
1/4 cup honey
2T hot mustard(or stone ground or brown)
1/4 cup rice vinegar
2t sesame oil
2t ginger, freshly grated(or sub 1t dry ginger)
1t red pepper flakes(adjust to your tolerance/liking)
1t Chinese 5 spice
1t celery seed, ground
2t ground mustard powder
2t ground coriander
2t ground cumin
sea salt and fresh ground pepper
sesame seeds to garnish(toasted) shopping list
How to make it
Spray slow cooker with no stick spray.
Place onions and bell pepper in bottom of slow cooker
Add meat and sprinkle with salt and pepper(a double layer of meat is fine, if needed)
In medium bowl combine rest of ingredients, mixing well
Pour over meat in slow cooker.
Cook on low 4-6 hours until meat is very tender.
Towards end of cooking, remove some of the liquid, if desired, and use it as part of the liquid to make rice
To serve, remove ribs with tongs and add pineapple/onion/pepper sauce using slotted spoon and top with toasted sesame seeds.
Footnote: This will yield a lot of liquid and some of it probably won’t be used
This may not be the prettiest dish, but it’s so easy and something different than the usual BBQ sauce for boneless ribs. Done this way the meat just melts in your mouth. Great served with Jasmine rice cooked in some of the liquid from the slow cooker, and topped with a lil of the sauce.
Can’t decide which of the others to make for tonight but your asian recipe will be for the other half of the package tomorrow (recipe halved of course). I have a sad looking bell pepper that needs to be used.
Thanks everyone for the great ideas. I knew I could count you y’all. Have a wonderful weekend.
