Slow Cooker Saturday: Sweet Hawiian Boneless Ribs


Nothing says Summer like some ribs. 

I have this problem though. I really, really, don't care to eat meat off of bones.

Alas, the very term RIBS implies that there will be meat on said bones.

So it seemed that the quintessential Summer BBQ meal and I would always be at an impasse.

Forever. 

FOR...EV...ER
FOR...EV...ER

...name the movie (also a Summer must)...  

Okay so I am being a little over dramatic.

I can have ribs. It is true.

Glory be, there are boneless ribs. The next best thing to boneless chicken wings.

All the yumminess. All the sauce. All the messiness. NONE of the me having to gnaw meat off of bones.

The good news doesn't stop there.

Not only can I enjoy yummy ribs, but I also don't have to work that hard to make them. 

Simply throw them in a slow cooker. 

This is the second time I have cooked ribs in a slow cooker. No you did not miss that recipe on the blog. There was a very good reason you didn't see it...I wasn't a huge fan (most likely because they were on the bone). 

This recipe I loved. LOVED, I tell you. 

I made a few minor tweaks.

They were a hit. Even Bean devoured the meat. Seriously his itty bitty hands were double fisting the meat in. It was awesome to behold.

So today for Slow Cooker Saturday, I am sharing this yummy just-in-time-for-Summer ribs recipe

Happy eating!

Sweet Hawaiian Boneless Ribs (Slow Cooker) 
adapted from Chef in Training

Print Here

2 lbs boneless pork ribs
2/3 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
3 Tablespoons brown sugar
3 Tablespoons honey
6 Tablespoon pineapple juice
2 Tablespoons minced garlic
1 teaspoon Chinese 5 spice powder

Spray the slow cooker with cooking spray.

Arrange the ribs evenly in the bottom of the slow cooker.

In a small bowl, combine all the rest of the ingredients and mix until everything is combined and the honey and brown sugar is dissolved.

Pour over the meat and cover. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.

When the ribs are done, remove 2 cups of the sauce and put it in a small sauce pan. Heat to boiling and cook down slightly. This will take about 10-15 minutes.

Place the ribs on a cooking sheet. Baste liberally with the slightly reduced sauce. Broil the meat for 5-7 minutes, checking often, until the sauce is sticky and the edges of the ribs are almost crisp.

Serve warm.

Have a great and glorious weekend!

As a mom with 6 kids, I am always looking for easy recipes and meat is always a tricky dish as my kids are to lazy to chew it but these sound divine and will be on the table after the next trip to the supermarket!! I doubt there will be any complaints except who will get to scrap the extra sauce out on the crock pot! TFS :)
