Ingredients

  • 2 racks pork back ribs (2 1/2 to 3 pounds each, cut into 3- or 4-rib sections)
  • 2 cups hoisin sauce
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 3 tablespoons fresh ginger root (grated)
  • 3 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 3 scallions (green only, thinly sliced, optional)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sesame seeds (toasted*, optional)

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, combine the hoisin sauce, pineapple juice, ginger, and sesame oil. Arrange the ribs in a slow cooker and pour half of the sauce mixture over the ribs. Cover and cook on low for 5 to 6 hours or on high for 3 1/2 to 4 hours, until the ribs are very tender. Set the remaining sauce aside in the refrigerator.
  • About 1/2 hour before the ribs are done, remove the sauce from the refrigerator, to bring it to room temperature.
  • Arrange the ribs on plates or a platter and brush both sides with some of the remaining sauce. Sprinkle with the scallions and sesame seeds, if using. Serve the rest of the remaining sauce at the table.
  • Serves 6 (4 ribs per serving)
  • * You can find hoisin sauce and sesame oil in the ethnic or Asian section of most major supermarkets.
