Asian Boneless Rib Recipe

For me, this is a good solid comfort food with perfect timing. I made this on a day where my allergies couldn’t have been any worse. The last thing I wanted to do when I got home was cook dinner. That is why I love my crock pot so much. It’s used and abused like no other.  I parked my backside on the couch with a hot cup of tea in hand while these finished up.

Everyone needs a good Boneless Beef Rib Recipe!

Boneless Ribs are a staple here in my house. I make them a lot of different ways and they taste completely different each time. I’ll share a couple of different ways as we go along I’m sure!

When you look for boneless ribs in the grocery store, they may be under a couple of different names. In my grocery store, they usually call them either “country style” or “Texas style”. Just be sure they are boneless beef. On to the recipe…

How to make this Boneless Beef Ribs Recipe

  1. Start by placing the ribs in the crockpot.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, combine the remaining ingredients except the corn starch. Pour the sauce over the ribs.
  3. Cook on low for 8 hours.
  4. Once it has finished cooking, transfer the rubs to a separate bowl and cover it with foil. Be careful, they will fall apart on you (they’re that tender!).

  6. Turn the crockpot on high. In a small bowl, whisk together the cornstarch and 1/4 cup of cold water until smooth. Pour the cornstarch slurry into the crockpot. Stir together until the sauce thickens and pour it over the ribs.

Boneless ribs won’t have any membrane that you need to remove. They can go directly into the crockpot.

How to store & reheat Asian Boneless Beef Country Style Ribs

Leftover ribs should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 3 days.

When you’re ready to reheat them, I recommend adding them to a covered over-safe dish at 350°F until heated through.

You can also reheat them in the microwave. Be sure to cover them while heating (to help keep moisture in) and don’t overcook them.

Can sweet & spicy Asian Beef Country Style Ribs be made ahead of time?

Sweet and spicy asian beef country style ribs can be made in advance. You can combine all of the ingredients and just throw in the slow cooker when ready to cook, or cook them completely through and reheat them when you’re ready.
