(Part of the Chinese New Year Theme Thursday Series)

It’s finally here;  The day we’ve been waiting all week for.  In just a few hours, we will be freed from our daily grind and plunged into the short-but-sweet world of free time.  Yes, it’s Friday.
Chinese-Style Barbecue Country Ribs
It’s Friday, and I’m posting an extension of the “Theme Thursday” series, I know.  Hopefully this extra recipe will make your weekend all that much better (and tastier), so you can forgive me on posting out-of-schedule.

And I think it will, because tender BBQ Ribs have never let me down before.  Especially not these easy-to-make, Chinese-inspired ones.

These Chinese-Style Barbecue Country Ribs are marinated and slow cooked, and require very little effort for a lot of flavor!
Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Asian
  • 3 pounds Country Ribs (I used boneless, because I like to serve mine over rice, but you can use bone-in as well!)
  • Toasted sesame seeds, scallions, and/or red pepper, to garnish
For the Chinese BBQ Sauce:
  • ⅓ cup sherry
  • 1 cup hoisin sauce
  • ⅔ cup soy sauce
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup tomato paste
  • 10 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 scallions, minced
  • 2 tablespoons hot chili sauce (such as Sriracha)
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon Chinese five spice powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  1. In the crock of your slow-cooker, stir together all of the Chinese BBQ Sauce ingredients. Add the ribs and cover with the sauce.
  2. Cover the crock and place in the fridge to marinate overnight (or at least 5 hours).
  3. Cook on low for 8-9 hours, or high for 4-5 hours. Skim off the fat from the sauce before serving.
  4. Top with toasted sesame seeds, scallions, and/or red pepper and serve over rice or Chinese-style vegetables.
