  • Crockpot



  • Remove any membrane from ribs.  
  • Rub ribs with seasoning and place in large crock pot (you may have to cut the ribs up so they all fit).
  • Pour in water and cook on low heat for 3-5 hours, until ribs are cooked through and they are already starting to fall off the bone (a good way to tell if they are done is to stick a knife in the ribs and if the knife comes up without pulling at the meat, they are done).
  • In a small bowl, combine chili sauce, sugar, vinegar, ginger, and Sriracha.   
  • Place ribs on a baking sheet and generously brush the sauce over the ribs.
  • Place the ribs on the top oven rack.
  • Broil for about 3-5 minutes or until the sauce begins to caramelize.  Watch them VERY closely so they don't burn.
  • Remove from oven, lightly cover with foil, and allow to sit for about 5 minutes before serving.
