When I was working two jobs, slow cooking was my way of life. Sometimes I had more than one slow cooker going at a time to help me feed my family delicious home-cooked meals. It's nice to walk in after a hard day's work and have dinner ready. I hope you agree these ribs are quick, easy and delicious. Enjoy! —Paula Marchesi, Lenhartsville, Pennsylvania

  • 3 pounds boneless country-style pork ribs
  • 6 green onions, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 can (8 ounces) sliced water chestnuts, drained
  • 3/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sherry or chicken stock

  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

  1. Place pork, green onions and water chestnuts in a 5-qt slow cooker. Mix hoisin sauce, soy sauce, sherry, garlic, gingerroot, corn syrup, marmalade, pie spice and pepper flakes in a bowl. Pour over pork. Cook, covered, on low until meat is tender, 6-8 hours.
