DIRECTIONS

  • Place the onion, pepper, garlic, and ginger in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped, about 8 pulses.
  • Heat the oil in a medium frying pan over medium-high heat.
  • Add the vegetable mixture and tomato paste and cook, stirring occasionally, until it is softened and slightly brown, about 7 minutes.
  • Stir in the jam, frozen juice, soy sauce, sugar, 1/4 cup vinegar and red pepper flakes.
  • Bring to a simmer and cook until thickened, about 5 minutes.
  • Pat the ribs dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper.
  • Stand upright in the slow cooker insert, winding them around in a spiral, meaty side toward the wall of the cooker.
  • Pour the sauce over the ribs.
  • Cook on low for 4 to 5 hours until tender.
  • Transfer the ribs to a cutting board, tent with foil and let rest for 20 minutes.
  • Let the cooking liquid settle 5 minutes and pour off the fat.
  • Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a medium pot.
  • Bring the sauce to a simmer and cook down until it measures about 2 cups, about 15 minutes.
  • Stir the remaining tablespoon of vinegar into the sauce and correct the seasoning.
  • Slice the ribs between the bones and toss with the sauce.
  • Serve on a platter garnished with cilantro.
