I love ribs. I like to experiment with various flavors and cooking styles when making ribs. Sometimes I bake the ribs, other times I will cook them in a slow cooker. In terms of flavor, I have made these awesome BBQ Baby Backs, but last night I wanted to try an Asian Style Flavor rib.

These ribs were to die for! My husband and I annihilated them like it was our last meal. These ribs literally fall off the bone, and the marinade is seriously one of the best umami flavors I've ever tasted. The perfect combo of sweet, spicy, tangy and salty. The only downside to this dinner was I think I should have made more ribs....we practically licked the plate clean.
