Slow-Cooked Asian-Style Ribs Recipe

Ribs no longer have to be one of those things you only eat in the warmer months. Pull out your slow cooker and whip up these savory Asian-style ribs. Serve with rice and vegetables for a complete meal that will have everyone in your family coming back for more.

Some crock pot recipes overcomplicate things by introducing too many steps before the ingredients actually touch the crock pot. The crock pot is supposed to make a cook's life easier by requiring them to spend less time in the kitchen, not more! This recipe takes that into account by keeping things as simple as possible.

There are only three steps to bring this recipe from thought to table. It will need to cook in the crock pot on low for six to seven hours or on high for three to three and a half hours. It isn't one of those recipes that you can leave cooking all day while you're at work, but it's a good one for weekends. Throw everything together and leave it cooking while you go and do something with family.

Of course, if you work from home or are a stay-at-home parent, this makes for a great weeknight meal. As long as someone is home to turn off the crock pot when it's time, you're all set! Everyone loves the idea of coming home to dinner already finished. With the aid of a crock pot and some good recipes, that dream becomes a reality.
