Super easy to make, and finger-licking good, these Peking-Style pork ribs take no time to prep and can be served at the table straight from the Crock-Pot® Lift & Serve Slow Cooker bowl! A recipe in collaboration with Crock-Pot®.
Sticky, Peking-style pork ribs are one of our family favourite meals, and they’re super easy to make at home. Usually, I slow cook them in the oven for a few hours on low, but now that I’m the proud owner of a new Crock-Pot® ‘Lift & Serve’ Slow Cooker I can make them in advance and then head out for the afternoon – dinner will be ready when I get home!

During the month of Crocktober (October) Crock-Pot®, encourages Brits to slow down by joining #Crocktober – a 31-day slow cooking challenge that aims to help the people of Britain put their feet up, enjoy that extra hour in bed and take back that quality time with loved ones. Importantly, #Crocktober sets out to remind us that it’s possible to cook delicious meals without taking up the whole day.
This is the third of three recipes I am sharing this Crocktober for Crock-Pot®. The first was a slow cooker oxtail soup recipe, the second was a pressure cooker Apricot & Almond Christmas Cake made in their Crock-Pot® Express Multi-Cooker.

- Heat sunflower oil in a heavy-based saute pan over a medium-high heat. Brown the ribs on all sides and place into the bowl of your Crock-Pot® Lift & Serve Slow Cooker.
- Mix together the Hoisin sauce, dark soy sauce, Shaoxing rice wine, honey, garlic, Chinese Five Spice and chilli flakes (if using) and pour over the top of the seared pork ribs. Stir well to coat.
- Close the lid of the slow cooker, select HIGH heat and set the timer for 4 hours.
- At the end of the cooking time, the KEEP WARM function will turn on. Remove the ribs from the cooking pot and keep warm.
- Dissolve the cornflour in a little water and stir into the sauce left in the bottom of the bowl. Stir until thickened (it'll thicken pretty quickly).
- Return the ribs to the cooking pot and stir well to coat. Serve straight from the cooking pot, or arrange the ribs on a serving platter and serve the remaining sauce on the side.
