These ribs are flavourful and something completely different to have for dinner. As they cook they become tender and the meat falls off the bone.


  • 21⁄2 kg pork spare ribs
  • 2 tbsps peanut oil
  • 1⁄2 cup char siu sauce
  • 2 tbsps soy sauce
  • 1⁄2 cup orange juice
  • 5cm piece fresh ginger, grated
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped
  • 2 tsps sesame oil


Step 1

Cut the rib racks into pieces to fit a 4.5 litre slow cooker. Heat the peanut oil in a large frying pan and cook ribs, in batches, until browned all over.

Step 2

Combine the sauces, juice, ginger, garlic, chilli and sesame oil in a jug and brush all over the ribs. Place the ribs in the slow cooker and pour over the remaining sauce. Cook, covered, on low for 7 hours. Remove the ribs from the sauce and cover to keep warm. Place the sauce in a medium pan and bring to the boil. Boil, uncovered, for about 5 minutes or until sauce has thickened slightly.

Step 3

Serve the ribs, drizzled with the sauce over steamed rice and broccoli.
