Ingredients

One 3- to 4-pound rack pork spare or back loin ribs, halved

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

3/4 cup Food Network Kitchen™ Inspirations Thai Style Sweet & Spicy Chili Cooking Sauce

Chopped cilantro, chopped roasted and salted peanuts and lime wedges, for serving

Directions

  1. Sprinkle the ribs all over with salt and pepper. Brush the ribs with 1/2 cup of the Thai Style Sweet & Spicy Chili Cooking Sauce. Transfer to a 6- to 8-quart slow cooker insert. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.
  2. Preheat the broiler and line a baking sheet with foil. 
  3. Place each rib rack half, bone-side down, on the prepared baking sheet. Brush with the remaining cooking sauce. Broil until the glaze is bubbling and browned, 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. Slice the ribs between the bones. Transfer to a platter and sprinkle with cilantro and peanuts. Squeeze lime juice over the ribs.
