We all have those nights when we just need a break from cooking in the kitchen. It's a fun thing to do, don't get me wrong, but sometimes it isn't as enjoyable to end a hectic day with a few hours cooking away in a hot kitchen.
It's nights like these that make you incredibly grateful for your slow cooker. A slow cooker can do all the dirty work for you, leaving you with a fragrant aroma to greet you at the door after a long day of work.
These Asian-inspired spare ribs have become part of my weekly meal planning. My family adores the delectable flavor the ribs offer and I love the ease of meal prep! The slow cooker maximizes the flavor profile and leaves the meat incredibly tender.
Serve the ribs with a side of rice and veggies and you'll have a complete feast that will satisfy even the smallest tummies of the family. The best part about this recipe is that it also makes fantastic leftovers, perfect for the next day's lunch at the office!
2 racks spareribs, trimmed (about 4 lbs.)

6 cloves of garlic
1/2 c. hoisin sauce
1/2 c. honey
1/4 c. soy sauce
1 tbsp. molasses
1 tbsp. Chinese chile-garlic sauce
