Slow Cooker Pork Ramen
A simple but delicious version of Japanese ramen, this soup starts with pork cooked to perfect tenderness in the crock pot, with garlic, ginger, leeks, mushrooms, and onions rounding out the flavors. The noodles are cooked separately just before serving, then the shredded pork and fragrant broth, with a little soy and sesame oil added, are ladled over top. A soft boiled egg makes a great garnish, as do shredded scallions or chopped baby spinach. Add some chile oil or Sriracha if you want to spice things up.
Easy BBQ Baby Back Pork Ribs
You don't have to baby-sit a smoker to get perfect barbecue baby back ribs. You can coat these with a spicy-sweet rub and oven roast them while you make an easy BBQ sauce. Then finish the ribs on the grill (up to 2 days later), where the barbecue sauce caramelizes into a glaze and the ribs get a hint of smoke. A Chowhound BBQ favorite.
