  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon sugar or Splenda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

What to do:

Dump everything except the water, cornstarch, and noodles or rice into your crockpot. Definitely don’t forge the Rib Candy grilling sauce – it is a key component. Cover and cook on low for about 6 hours, until the meat is tender.  Combine the cornstarch and cold water to make a paste, and stir it into the slow cooker. Turn the crockpot to high and cook for about a half-hour longer, or until thickened.

Serve over noodles or rice.
