Slow Cooker Asian Pork

OK, so I so forgot how nice it is too cook with a slow cooker. Fix it and forget about it until dinner is done. One of my husband's favorite recipes is an Italian Beef. Take a round roast, add a jar of spaghetti sauce, cook on low for 6-8 hours, shred meat, serve on toasted rolls with provolone cheese. I decided to make that up for him and the baby is loving it too. I check out a book at the library and was intrigued by the idea of a recipe in it and decided to play around and see what came out of the slow cooker six hours later. Just a little tip for this one, the recipe I got the idea for said that this was 6 servings, try closer to 8 or more.

Asian Pork

1/8 cup of honey

the juice of 1 lime

1/4 cup of brown sugar

5 lbs of country style pork ribs

1 cup of soy sauce

1 onion, chopped

2 cloves of garlic minced

1 tablespoon of chopped cilantro

2 tablespoons of red pepper flakes

if you must 1 tablespoon of minced ginger

1 bunch of green onions chopped

3 tablespoons of toasted sesame seeds

Put chopped onion into the bottom of the slow cooker. Place all other ingredients but pork, green onion, and sesame seeds in a bowl and mix until all are incorporated. dip pork into sauce and add to slow cooker, pour remaining sauce of meat. Put cover on the slow cooker and cook on low or at least 6 hours. Remove meat and garnish with green onion and sesame seeds.
