Crock Pot Cooking: Hawaiian Style Country Ribs

My quest to make a really good Cashew Chicken at home, lead me to start using Hoisin sauce on a regular basis. Like ketchup or mustard, not all Hoisin sauces are equal when it comes to quality or taste.  When I fell in love with the Hoisin sauce sold by Wildtree (you can find it HERE), I had to shamelessly promote it. I like the taste of this Hoisin sauce more than what I bought before, and for a bonus I get close to four ounces more for almost the exact same price. This sauce is a keeper, and so is the crock pot recipe I’m posting today. All four of my kids will eat this dish, which gives this recipe a solid endorsement as a kid friendly food worth trying.

Hawaiian Style Country Ribs

  • 3 lbs boneless pork or beef ribs
  • 8 oz can of pineapple chunks (not drained)
  • 2/3 cup (6oz.) Hoisin Sauce

  • ½ tsp ground pepper
  • 6-8 Cups of rice cooked
  1. Place contents of bag in crockpot. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
  2. Prepare rice per package directions (may substitute canned coconut milk instead of water when making rice).
  3. Serve ribs with rice. Top with sauce & pineapple chunks from Crock Pot.
