Slow Cooker Asian Style Ribs

Slow Cooker Asian Style Ribs. Fall apart tender ribs in an amazing sticky Asian style sauce. Cooked low and slow for 8 hours!

This is one of the best meals you will ever make with the least amount of effort. These ribs are incredibly tender after being cooked in the slow cooker for 6-8 hours.

The ribs start off with an easy dry rub: brown sugar, garlic powder, onion powder, 5 spice powder and chili powder. It’s the perfect blend of sweet and spicy!

Once the ribs are rubbed down with the spice rub they are placed in the slow cooker with an amazing sticky Asian sauce!

These ribs are incredibly easy to make. Simply mix up the rub ingredients in a small bowl and the sauce ingredients in a separate bowl. Rub the ribs with the dry rub then place in the slow cooker along with the sauce.

Once the ribs are finished cooking I brush them with a little extra sauce and broil them until crispy.

Serve these Slow Cooker Ribs with a side of rice and a vegetable. To serve garnish with a sprinkle of sesame seeds and green onions for garnish.
