    My sister made these for a football game at her house last year, along with some cole slaw. Oh my, those ribs!! I bugged her for the recipe until she gave it to me. Now that football season is upon us again, I'll be cranking up MY crockpot with these delectable ribs in them! Only 5 ingredients--what a find!

    Great taste and very tender. Did thicken the sauce a bit with cornstarch and water. Will try using boneless ribs next time.

    I used boneless beef short ribs with good results. Added 1/2 tsp. ground ginger and used teriyaki sauce instead of the soy/ketchup. At the end, I thickened the liquid with a mixture of cornstarch/cold water. The family ate it up!

    Another version uses teriyaki sauce in place of the soy (eliminate the ketchup) for a slightly spicier and gingery taste
