Asian-Style Spareribs

Spareribs from the microwave? In the Cook-Zen pot, it's possible. Ready in less than 15 minutes, these ribs are tender, browned, and in a sauce that will have you licking the pot clean.

Asian-Style Spareribs


  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 8 pork ribs (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • 4 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sugar


Place the olive oil and garlic in the Cook-Zen. Heat on medium-high, uncovered, for 1 minute.  Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Cover and heat on medium-high for 13 minutes with the steam holes set to “close.”
