Slow Cooked Pork Ribs

**Non-Halal Post**

slow cooked pork ribs02 -f

I've read in Lilian's Food, travel, recipe and sights on how she had cooked spare ribs in a slow cooker (also known as crock pot) without adding any water. I was worried all these while what if the slow cooker crack under such circumstance. However, in her post, she reassured that did not happened when she experimented it.

So using guesstimation again, I marinaded some pork ribs with red preserved beancurd, oyster sauce, Worcestershire sauce and a bit of cornflour. Placed some chopped leek and onion at the bottom of the slow cooker. Next, arranged the ribs on top. I've used a small slow cooker that has only one heat setting and cooked the ribs for about 3+ hours.

The meat came out very very tender and fall out easily off the bones (like those canned ribs!). Very flavourful. However the leeks and onions have gotten a bit mushy since I've sliced them too finely. Hubby liked the meat but he thinks bittergourd cooked this way would be more flavourful as compared with the mushy leeks and onions. Will try that next time.

Thanks to Lilian for the insight of cooking without water in a slow cooker. Without her post, I wouldn't have done this! The best thing is all I need to clean up was the pot, no messy oil splatter all over the stove, YAY!
