What is it about ribs? People love ‘em.Maybe it’s that fall-off-the-bone tender meat. Or the fact that it’s perfectly acceptable to eat them with your hands. Or perhaps it’s because no one frowns on keeping wet wipes at the table when you eat ribs. (Yes, Yes, and Yes!) No matter the reason, really. Ribs are great for crowds and reheat well as leftovers. What’s not to love?

These Hoisin Grilled Ribs might just earn top billing, however, with their ease of preparation and unique Asian flavor. These bad boys start out in the slow cooker – bathing in an aromatic mixture of hoisin sauce, garlic, ginger, Sriracha and rice vinegar for 6 hours – and finish off with a quick char on the grill right before serving. Delish!

You can even make the ribs in advance if you know you’ll be short on time. Cook the ribs in the slow cooker as directed (this one is my favorite because it has oven, stovetop AND slow cooker functions) and allow to cool. Store in the fridge for up to 3 days. When you’re ready to serve the ribs, pop them on the grill and baste them with sauce until they are nicely lacquered and heated through. Bonus: cold ribs will also hold together better on the grill.Celebrate the special dads in your life next weekend with these Hoisin Grilled Ribs. (Wet wipes are totally optional.)
