Recipe adapted from: Cook’s Country magazine, August-September 2012

Rich and robust flavor without having to fire up the grill.


  1. I like using an ale when slow cooking with beer. My favorite is Yuengling
  2. If you want a little kick with the sausage, use spicy Italian sausages


  • 2 large sweet onions, sliced into 1/4 inch thick rings
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsps packed light brown sugar
  • 10 mild Italian sausage
  • 2 12-oz beer
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp caraway seeds
  • 1/4 tsp fennel seeds
  • 10 hoagie rolls
  • sauerkraut


  1. In a large microwaveable bowl, combine onions, soy sauce and brown sugar. Cover and cook in microwave for 5 minutes. Toss then transfer to slow cooker. Place sausages on top.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together beer, mustard, caraway and fennel. Pour on sausage. Cook on low for 6-7 hours. When cooked, remove sausage and arrange on a platter. With a slotted spoon, remove onions from slow cooker and arrange around sausages as a garnish. Create sandwiches with hoagie rolls and top sausage with onions and sauerkraut, if desired.

A savory dish that everyone can enjoy…


1. Cooking for more than 6 hours on low will produce the “fall off the bone” ribs.

2. If it’s not readily available on the meat counter, ask the butcher for Flanken Style Ribs. I get mine at Publix.

3. Yes, it’s the same ribs used for Korean Kalbi (Galbi) Beef.

4. No sweet tea? Just add some sugar to regular unsweetened tea to sweeten to your liking.

Serves: 4


  • 8 Flanken Style Ribs (approximately 2.5 lbs), cut 1/4 inch thin
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 cup sweet tea
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 slices ginger root
  • 2 bay leaves


Rinse ribs and dry with paper towel. Arrange in slow cooker. Add onion on top. Add remaining ingredients, cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours. Remove bay leaves and ginger root before serving.
