Directions

  1. This crock-pot entre is really, really good. It takes 10 minutes to prepare, is made from ingredients that are readily available and is a bargain when you consider the number of servings it provides. One caution - you'll have mush with Asian flavor if you cook this for more than 5 to 6 hours. The recipe is adapted from "Slow Cooker Recipes for All Occasions", a Rival Crock-Pot publication.
  2. Served with rice and snow peas you have the makings of a minor feast that you'll repeat often. My family loves this dish. I think yours will, too. This, by the way, is a wonderful recipe for novice cooks. If you have a willing teen, let them have a go at it.Asian-Style Country Ribs with Black Bean Garlic Sauce
  3. Spray interior of slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray.
