  • 1 red onion cut into 1-inch slices
  • 3 lbs. ribs trimmed
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 Tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Sriracha sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cups fresh pineapple diced


  • Spread sliced onions evenly in the bottom of the crock pot. Place ribs on top of onion.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together garlic, ginger, brown sugar, soy sauce, Sriracha, and apple cider vinegar. Pour mixture evenly over the ribs.
  • Cook on low for 7 hours. Add pineapple to the crock pot and stir slightly so the pineapple is coated in the crock pot liquid. Continue to cook for one more hour.
  • Carefully remove ribs, pineapple and onions from crock pot. Cover with foil to keep warm.
  • Pour remaining liquid into a small saucepan. Skim excess fat from the surface. Bring to a boil and cook until liquid is reduced by half and slightly thickened.
  • Brush reduced liquid over the ribs.
  • Spoon pineapple and onions over rice to serve.


  • The sriracha adds flavor rather than heat, but if you are particularly sensitive to spicy foods you can swap it for ketchup.
  • I found that cooking on low for 7 hours produced the best ribs, but you can cook them on high for 4 hours if you are short on time.
