Thai red chiles are extremely hot peppers. For less heat, prepare recipe as directed using milder peppers, such as jalapeño peppers.
How to Handle Fresh Chile Peppers
When handling fresh chile peppers, be sure to wear disposable rubber or clear plastic gloves to avoid irritating your skin. Never touch your eyes, nose or mouth when handling the peppers. If you've forgotten to wear the gloves and feel a burning sensation in your hands, apply a baking soda and water paste to the affected area. After rinsing the paste off, you should feel some relief.
For easy cleanup, line slow cooker with plastic liner bag before filling with ingredients and cooking as directed.
Serve with 1/2 cup each hot cooked rice and sautéed fresh vegetables to round out the meal.
Pork spareribs are flavorful, meaty slabs of ribs that range in size from 2 to 4 lb. per slab. Pork back ribs, also known as baby back ribs, are ribs from the pork loin section. A slab of back ribs ranges from 1-1/4 to 2-1/4 lb., and tends to be leaner and less meaty than a slab of spareribs. Similar to pork spareribs, beef back ribs are much larger than pork back ribs, yet still tender and full of flavor.
