You’re gonna fall in love with these Slow Cooker Thai Style Pork Spare Ribs. I mean, the meat falls off the bone, y’all! The taste is so delicious and the flavors are so good together! They are a great week night meal and perfect for Game Day weekends!
My kids went back to school last week, and like most of the first days, I try to make their favorites for dinner when they come home. My oldest LOVES ribs! He craves and talks about them all the time. You know how growing boys eat…he could probably eat an entire rack of ribs, if we let him. Thankfully as my kids are growing older they are starting to like more flavors. In our house we are huge fans of Mexican and Asian infused meals. So I thought I would combine my oldest’s love for ribs with our love for Thai style food in one delicious slow cooker meal.
- 5-6 lbs of Pork Spare Ribs
- 11/2 cups of Peanut Sauce
- 1 Tablespoon of Sesame Oil
- 11/2 teaspoons of minced garlic - or fresh if you have on hand
- 1/2 cup of Ginger dressing
- 1/3 cup of low sodium Soy Sauce
- 1 Tablespoon of Worcestershire Sauce
- Juice of 1 lime - set aside a few slices for garnish
- 1/4 chopped cilantro + some for garnish
- 1/4 green onion - if desired
- 1 Tablespoon of sesame seeds* for garnish
- Start preheating your slow cooker on low.
- If you have 5-6 lbs of ribs - they should be cooked within 7 hours on low*
- In a mixing bowl combine all ingredients together.
- Be sure to set aside some cilantro, lime wedges, sesame seeds & green onion* for garnish.
- Cut your rack in half if needed to fit inside your slow cooker (that's what I did)
- Spray your slow cooker with Butter Spray
- Lay your ribs inside the slow cooker and pour your mixture over the ribs
- Try to get in between the layers with the sauce mixture.
- In about 7 hours they should be "fall off the bone" ready!
- Slice the ribs, and place on a serving platter or baking sheet and garnish with extra Peanut Sauce along with the cilantro, lime wedges, sesame seeds and green onion, if desired.
