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


  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.
