Asian Style Country Ribs

It's definitely time to bring out the slow cooker.  The weather is getting cooler and since school has started, our lives have gotten much busier!  The slow cooker is invaluable to us on those busy days when it's impossible to get dinner on the table in a timely manner AND drive the kids to their various after-school activties, some which run into our usual dinner time.  There are lots of different slow cooker rib recipes out there.  I found this one, which used ingredients that I had already in the house.  Now, I've made many slow cooker recipes and many have turned out eh, kind of bland.  Both my husband and I were surprised out how tasty and flavorful these ribs were.  My daughter was eating hers right up and even had seconds.  My son, the picky eater had a couple of bites of these.  I don't often repeat recipes but I would definitely make these again! Rice and veggies completed this quick and easy meal.

  1. Ooooh I love crockpot recipes that are actually good. I swear, they're usually either terrible or awesome. And it's great to have ones that all you need to do is buy meat, because you have everything else on hand. I'll be trying this one out for sure!
