Sweet & Sour Pork Ribs - Slow Cooker
Yield: Serves 6
Cooking Time: 10 - 12 hours (in slow cooker)
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
3 lbs (1.4 kg) Canadian PORK side ribs
2 cups (500 mL) brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup (50 mL) all-purpose flour
14 oz (398 mL) pineapple tidbits in juice, undrained
2 Tbsp (30 mL) EACH: soya sauce and ketchup
1/2 cup (125 mL) white vinegar
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tsp ( 5 mL) ginger, grated
Cut PORK ribs into 2 to 3 rib sections.
Over medium-high heat, mix together all ingredients (except ribs) in a small saucepan; heat and stir until boiling and thickened.
Layer ribs in a slow cooker, spooning sauce over each layer. Cover and cook on LOW for 10 - 12 hours or on HIGH for 5 - 6 hours until ribs are very tender.
If you want to thicken the sauce after removing the ribs, just pour the juice into a saucepan and add 2 Tbsp/30 mL cornstarch dissolved in 1/4 cup/50 mL water, then bring to a boil.
