Serves 4


  • 4 lbs pork spare ribs
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro
  • ½ sweet onion diced


  • 1 TBSP grated fresh ginger
  • 1/3 cup rice wine
  • 3 cloves crushed garlic
  • ¼ cup coconut or palm sugar
  • 1 TBSP sesame oil
  • ½ tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/3 cup tamari
  • 2 TBSP balsamic vinegar
  • 2 TBSP fish sauce
  • Large pinch of sea salt
  • Juice of 1 large orange


  • Toasted sesame seeds
  • Thinly sliced scallion greens


Start by putting all your sauce ingredients into a mason jar with a lid and shake well to combine. Next, heat your oven to broil.  While oven is heating place your ribs on a cookie sheet and liberally salt and pepper both sides.  When broiler is ready, place ribs on highest oven rack and brown both sides under broiler (about 6 minutes on each side).  Meanwhile, line the bottom of Crockpot with cilantro and diced sweet onion. Once ribs are browned place them in the Crockpot on top of the onion and cilantro along with their juices.  Next, pour the sauce on top, set to low and let the ribs cook for at least 6 hours or until falling off the bone. When ribs are done, place on a service platter and sprinkle with sesame seeds and scallions to garnish.  Enjoy!
