1 garlic clove, minced (or its equivalent in dry form)
1 small onion, sliced
1 (8 oz.) can crushed pineapple in unsweetend juice, undrained
3/4 cup ketchup
3 Tbsp. brown sugar
3 Tbsp. hoisin sauce

With the remaining pineapple and juice add ketchup, brown sugar, hoisin sauce and gingerroot; mix well

Cover and cook on low setting 8-10 hours.
About 35 minutes before serving, drain and discard cooking juices from slow cooker; wipe edge of slow
cooker clean. (I remove the meat and pour out the cooking juices.) Spoon or pour evenly over ribs the sauce mixture. Increase
heat setting to high; cover and cook an additional 30 minutes or until ribs are glazed. Serve with rice and your favorite
Recipe yields 6 servings and can easily be doubled for a crowd.
