Hoisin Pork Ribs – slow cooker redemption


If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. And so I did. Today the slow-cooker recipe was “Asian Pork Ribs” (thanks, Betty Crocker iPad app!) …. However that name is way too politically correct so henceforth I shall call these Hoisin Pork Ribs.

Way better than last week. The butcher at Met Market cut these country style ribs in cubes just for me (wow, I used a butcher!). I got back from the store then realized we were out of soy sauce. I ended up using a ton of those little packets we get from takeout sushi.

How can I be a legitimate Chinese woman without soy sauce in my kitchen?

The ribs were great. Husband liked them, kid liked them, I really liked. I stir fried some broccoli and green beans, and used a frozen rice/beans mix, which I still managed to mess up, even though husband tried to help there. I am a lost cause when it comes to rice. Maybe it’s for the best that I don’t eat much rice anymore. Maybe I should give it up all together.

What to try net week? I think I’m all porked out.
