Crockpot Ginger Garlic Ribs
I am always looking for new recipes for dinner. I love trying new things and my husband is just happy I make dinner every night. He’s a huge fan of meat especially from Skyview and we had just purchased a beautiful rack of ribs so I had to come up with something.
In a dish I mixed together the ginger, pepper, and onion powder. Then I added the garlic and mixed it up again. Then I added soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, and honey. whisk to combine. This sauce was so good that next time I’ll be doubling it. After the sauce was completed I split it in half.
I made a rub with a dry rub of brown sugar, smoked paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, pepper, and salt.
Then I covered the ribs in the rub. The mix smells really good 🙂
I poured the sauce over the ribs and placed them in my crockpot. I cooked them on low for about 6 hours until the meat was tender.
With the other half of my sauce I heated it on medium heat until it started boiling. In a separate bowl I mixed the cornstarch and water together and added it to the saucepan slowly to thicken it.
After the ribs were cooked I removed them from the slow cooker and placed them on a tin foil lined broil pan, meaty side up. I brushed a little more of the sauce from the saucepan and left the rest for serving. Broil in the oven for a few minutes or until it looks sticky and broiled. Allow to rest, tented with foil for 3-5 minutes and serve.
I served the ribs over rice with the sauce. They were so good!
