Happy Thanksgiving and Soy Sauce Ribs

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!  May your day be filled with good food and good fellowship with people you love.  We are family-less this Thanksgiving and are having friends who are family-less over!  Our day will start out with appetizers while watching the Green Bay Packers play!  Go Packers!  Hopefully after celebrating a win, we will feast on Turkey, Homemade Bread and Sausage Stuffing, Green Bean Dairy Supreme, Homemade Mashed Potatoes and Gravy, Sweet Potato Casserole Homemade Crescent Rolls, Cranberry Orange Relish, Banana Cranberry Fluff and Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes and for Dessert: Pecan Pie Bars, Coconut Cream Pie,and Pumpkin Pie!
There are a few new recipes in the menu that you will soon see! 

Now, for the recipe of the day....I made 2 crockpots full of ribs for Don's moms birthday dinner---one with a rub and BBQ sauce and the other this recipe. I love both kinds of ribs, but this one was a low carb recipe that tasted great!
Soy sauce ribs
low carb
2 lbs country pork ribs (cut into 3-4 pcs each)
1/4 cup soy sauce
1-2 garlic cloves crushed
1/4 inch piece fresh ginger chopped
1/2 tablespoon toasted sesame oil

Place ribs in crockpot, dump everything else in.
3-4 hours on high, 5-6 on low and the meat just fall off the bone. For the rest of my family I serve this with rice and veggies I can eat too.
Also yummy for chicken as well.

Hint: Buy a small piece of fresh ginger in the oriental produce section. Keep it wrapped well in the freezer and peel the brown skin off a little at a time, as you use it. I also use the peeler to peel off little pieces and use it just like that.
