For small appetizer portions, ask the butcher to cut the ribs in half crosswise.

1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 tablespoon vegetable oil

How to Make It
Sauté first 3 ingredients in hot oil in a small saucepan over medium heat 3 to 5 minutes or until tender. Stir in next 7 ingredients. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 5 minutes.
Place half of ribs in a single layer in a lightly greased 6-qt. slow cooker. Pour half of sauce mixture over ribs. Top with remaining ribs in a single layer. Pour remaining sauce mixture over ribs. Cover and cook on HIGH 4 hours or until tender. Transfer to a serving platter.
Thank god I didn't "lightly grease" my crockpot. This was the heavest, greasiest meal I've ever made or had. The sauce was too much, too heavy. Maybe it would be good parboiled and grilled with the sauce, but not like recipe stated. I rarely waste food, but, we couldn't eat but a few bites and ended up throwing most of it away.
