Asian Ribs Recipe

My husband adores this dish, and I love how good it makes the house smell! The mild, tangy, salty-sweet sauce with fresh ginger and garlic is delicious with rice or noodles. —Julie Ko, Rogers, Arkansas

"Made this recipe with 2 1/2 lbs. baby back ribs. Cut all ingredients in 1/2 and only used 1/2 cup light brown sugar. Great Asian taste and smell. Will definitely make again."

"The sauce was tasty. I think though, that my ribs were too fatty because the cooking juices, even after reducing vere very oily. Maybe next time I'll boil the ribs a bit as I do when I oven-bake them."

"I used boneless country-style ribs, and used ground ginger rather than purchase ginger root. This recipe is very good, and very easy to prepare! I'll be making this one again!"

"These ribs were very good and easy. Only had 2-1/2 lbs of baby backs so halved the sauce portion and cooked meat side down in the slow cooker for 6 hrs 40 min, which was a bit too long, so I'll adjust it next time. Served w/ basmati rice and corn on the cob. Did not make gravy, used sauce as is. Will make again."

"This is every bit as good (if not better) than the pork ribs served at our favorite Chinese buffet restaurant. Definitely a keeper."

"I thought this dish was great! I made a couple subs with it though. I used 1 tbs of ground ginger and country style pork ribs. I thought it had a great flavor and plenty of sauce. The only bummer...my boyfriend wasn't crazy about it. Maybe because of the ginger? Guess that means more leftovers for me!"

"<p>This recipe was delicious!! My 3 kids (aged 8-14) and hubby LOVED it and they are big fans of asian food. I did substitute ground ginger from a jar for the fresh ginger root.I used the boneless country style ribs and they came out sooo moist and tender! I also served this with the Asian Spaghetti (also a Taste of Home recipe) and it was a perfect combination!</p>"

"Very good. I used country ribs since they were on sale and the meat was very tender and delicious. My only concern was the sesame oil...it had such a strong smell I was not sure I would be pleased with the results. It tasted good but I think the next time I may use half the amount of sesame oil. Sauce thickened nicely with the cornstarch and was great on the rice."

"Very tasty and so tender. The only odd thing is the two people in our house that don't care for asian flavors, loved the taste. The two that do, did not care for it! I made a half recipe - worked perfectly."

"Mild sauce is right, almost to the point of being bland. There is subltle Asian flavor but it was lacking something but the meat fell off the bone and the flavor wasn't bad just mild. Next time I might try playing with the spices a bit and see if I can't kick it up a notch."
