Wendell's Crock Pot Hoisin Spare Ribs

Wendell wanted to test out a new crock pot that he got from Costco so he chose this recipe from the Delectable Bakehouse website.  You can check out their step-by-step directions here.  It was fall-off-the-bone tender.


  1. 4 Tbsp Hoisin sauce
  2. 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  3. 2 tsp sesame oil
  4. 2 tsp grated orange peel
  5. 2 Tbsp ginger
  6. 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  7. 6 green onions, sliced
  8. 1/2 tsp Sriracha hot chili sauce
  9. 3 lbs pork spare ribs
  1. In a bowl, combine Hoisin sauce, soy sauce, sesame oil, orange peel, ginger, garlic, about 3/4 of the green onions and Sriracha.
  2. Spoon enough of the mixture into the crock pot to cover the bottom. Top with half of the spare ribs.
  3. Spoon some more of the mixture over the spare ribs. Top with the rest of the spare ribs. Spoon the remaining mixture on top of those spare ribs.
  4. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours. Serve over a bed of Jasmine rice and sprinkle with reserved green onions.
Here's our new crockpot.  Wendell said it was around $40. It works great . . . way better than the one it replaced where the only settings were hot, warm and off.

Your timing could not have been more perfect! I keep seeing all these slow cooker recipes and have been considering a purchase of one....this recipe might be the kicker!

Try using these for your crock pot. Cleanup is so much easier & Longs always have then on sale for around $2. Ribs look good Jalna. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00578EKRY?keywords=crock%20pot%20liners&qid=1456266754&ref_=sr_1_5&s=kitchen&sr=1-5

With your cooking skills, Jenny, I think you'd make good use of a crock pot.

Mark Shelby said...

OK! So that was totally awesome!

Now I like see one Kalua Pig pork butt in da crock! ; )

My favorite!

Now go for it Wendell! I know you can do it! ; )


This really is my all time favorite crock pot feast!

I also used to make it in my Mom's oven when I was a teen. I would stab it, put the smoke flavor, add the Hawaiian salt, wrap in ti leaves and tie with string. And cook slow overnight in my Mom's oven! HO! Da whole house always smelled so good! ; )

And total fall apart porky goodness! ; )

Oh thanks Jalna. Now I remember. I see I even made a comment there. I hope that wasn't an old timers brain fart that I forgot! ; )

I would like to have this tomorrow....

jalna said...

LOL, Mark. I have chronic brain fart.

Akemi, I'm so excited for you! I'm totally ready to go back to Japan again too!

I used our crock pot once and haven't tried it again. I'm such a terrible cook.
