Makes: 4 to 6 servings

Prep: 15 mins

Cook: 5 hrs 35 mins

  • 1 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 head garlic, peeled and smashed
  • small piece (1 oz.) fresh ginger, thinly sliced crosswise
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 racks pork spare ribs (about 4 lbs.), trimmed and sliced
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 1 10 ounce box  plain couscous
  • 1 large bunch bok choy, cut crosswise into 1-inch pieces
  1. In a slow cooker, stir together the soy sauce and brown sugar. Add the scallions, garlic and ginger; season with pepper. Add the ribs and toss to coat. Add 1 cup water and cook on low heat until the meat is tender, 5 to 5 1/2 hours.
  2. In a bowl, pour the boiling water over the couscous; season. Cover and let stand for 10 minutes; fluff.
  3. Meanwhile, using tongs, transfer the ribs to a platter. Pour the sauce from the slow cooker into a large saucepan; skim off and discard the fat. Bring to a boil, add the bok choy and cook until the stems are crisp-tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer to the platter. Serve the ribs with the bok choy and couscous; serve extra sauce on the side.
Tip Do Ahead
  • Marinate the ribs in the cooking liquid overnight for extra flavor, then throw into the slow cooker in the morning.
