Sticky Crockpot Ribs with Sage Garlic Roasted Fingerling Potatoes

Rye & Butter


Description: The best greasy and cheap Chinese food I have ever eaten was the one next to our old apartment in Brooklyn called Hing Hung Kitchen and they served these bomb sticky spare ribs. This recipe is an ode to those ribs. This dish also comes with these fingerling potatoes that are easy to prep and don't take much time.

  1. In a large bowl, mix soy sauce, hoisin sauce, fish sauce, honey, Sriracha, rice vinegar, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, salt, pepper, and the ribs. Marinate for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator.
  2. Pour ribs and marinade in slow cooker. Cook, covered, on high for 4 hours or low for 6 hours, until the meat is tender but not falling off the bone.
  3. Transfer the ribs to a baking sheet. Pour sauce into a medium saucepan and spoon off as much fat as possible.
  4. Preheat the broiler.
  5. Heat the saucepan to medium heat and bring the sauce to a boil. In a small bowl mix cornstarch and 1 tablespoon of water together. Once sauce comes to a boil slowly add in the cornstarch mixture. Whisk until it comes back to a boil and then turn to medium low and allow to simmer until it begins to reduce and thicken.
  6. Brush the ribs with some of the sauce and broil until caramelized, about 5 - 10 minutes.
  7. Transfer to a platter and drizzle with any remaining sauce. Garnish with toasted sesame seeds and green onions.


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Toss potatoes with olive oil, garlic, sage, lemon juice salt, and pepper in a bowl. Spread potatoes out on baking sheet and then roast, stirring occasionally, until crispy and tender, about 20 minutes. Enjoy!
