Slow-cooked BBQ Pork Ribs (Incredibly Delicious)

Slow Cooked BBQ Pork Ribs01

These are the best slow-cooked pork ribs I’ve ever had. The nearly fell-off-the-bone pork meat with the sweet and slightly tangy sauce will make you want more. The taste is well-balanced and the meat is not fatty at all. With minimum preparation, all the cooking can be done in one pot simmering on stove. If you have a slow cooker, draw it out from your pantry to serve you. This recipe will work perfectly either with a pot on stove or a slow cooker. This dish can be served with steamed rice or salad.

Slow-cooked BBQ Pork Ribs Recipe (Printable recipe)
By Christine's Recipes
Prep time: 10 mins + plus marinating time
Cook time: 2½ hrs
Yield: 2 to 3 serves

Ingredients:
  • 500 gm American pork ribs
  • 2 Tbsp BBQ sauce
  • 2 Tbsp ketchup
  • 2 tsp red wine vinegar
  • 3 to 4 orange peels, orange part only, each about 1cm x 3cm
  • 3/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 dried red chilli
Slow Cooked BBQ Pork Ribs Procedures

Method:
  1. Soak the dried chilli in hot water until softened. Chop roughly. Set aside.
  2. Cut the pork ribs to fit into the size of your pot. Mix all ingredients with the pork ribs. Cover and chill in fridge for at least 6 hours, or overnight.
  3. Remove the ribs from the fridge and rest at room temperature for 10 minutes. Transfer the ribs with the marinade into a heavy-based pot. Pour in some water that just covers the ribs. Cook over high heat, covered. When it boils, reduce heat to simmer until the ribs are softened, for about 2 to 2½ hours. (Remark: If you use a slow cooker, cook for about 4 to 6 hours, no need to top up with water though.) Remove the cover. Turn heat to high and cook until the sauce is reduced and thickened. Serve hot.

Notes:
  • The power of every stove is very different. Please adjust the cooking time accordingly.
  • Replenish boiling water if necessary while cooking. Towards the end of cooking, the sauce should be thickened and a bit glossy.
  • To get the best results, get sweet navel oranges to make this dish.

    1. Sometimes I got very lean beef brisket to make the stewed beef brisket too. It's a bliss, no need to solidify the fat then discard it. Save time and energy.

    1. You may use oxtail or shank.They are all beef, only different cut. The taste will be as good as brisket.

  4. Hi Christine, thank you so much for sharing the recipes (I've tried the sausage rolls and japanese style bacon & cheese bread. They are amazing!!! My children and husband can't stop eating them and we end up having them for lunch and supper). I want to try making this pork ribs recipe but I never had any experience with red wine cooking, so never had them in my shelf. If I omit it will the end result be totally different? What can I use for the substitute? Please advice. Thank you so much. Loisa

    1. Great to hear that you had big success on making bread.

      As for making this dish, you need red wine vinegar, not red wine. It's a kind of vinegar. If it's not handy to you , you may replace with white vinegar.

  5. I don't eat much pork, but am sure the sauce would be fantastic with some chicken thighs or wings. It does look very delicious, Christine.

  6. Hi Christine - great recipe! Can I please clarify when you said no need to top up water if using slow cooker, did you mean to skip the step of adding water to cover the ribs? Thanks!

    1. No need to add too many water in the first place. It depends on the size of your slower cooker and how deep it is. Just add water that barely touches the surface of pork ribs.
      Pork ribs will release some water and a slower cooker won't lose any water along the way of cooking.
      You're aiming at getting thickened yummy sauce. If too many water, it will dilute the taste.

  7. Hi Christine, I would like to try this recipe. But I do not have red wine vinegar. Can I substitute it with zhen jiang vinegar?

    1. The taste of red wine vinegar is very different from zhen jiang vinegar. I haven't tested it with this recipe.

      But you still can experiment with zhen jiang vinegar and see how you like it.

  9. hi Christine, i have cooked it with beef shin using slow cooker...it didnt turn out to be tasty :( is it because i used beef instead port ribs? and it is quite spicy due to just 1 dried chilli. is it supposed to be hot spicy? thank you. i dont know what went wrong...

    1. Taste-wise, beef shin doesn't work with this recipe. Pork ribs have bones that make the whole dish taste differently.
      If you find 1 dried chilli too hot for you, you might use half next time. Or remove the seeds inside. It won't taste that hot anymore.
      This dish should taste subtly spicy, not too hot though.

  11. Hi Christine
    Can I use oyster sauce to replace BBQ sauce? Thanks for your lovely recipes!

    1. You can. Oyster sauce tastes differently and saltier. Adjust the amount accordingly.
