Slow Cooker Sweet And Sour Baby Back Ribs Recipe
  1. Place the onion, pepper, garlic, and ginger in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped, about 8 pulses.
  2. 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.
  3. Stir in the jam, frozen juice, soy sauce, sugar, 1/4 cup vinegar, lime zest, and red pepper flakes. Bring to a simmer and cook until thickened, about 5 minutes.
  4. Pat the ribs dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper. Stand upright in the slow cooker, winding them around in a spiral, meaty side toward the wall of the cooker. Pour the sauce over the ribs.
  5. Cook on low for 4 to 5 hours until tender.
  6. Transfer the ribs to a cutting board, tent with foil and let rest for 20 minutes.
  7. 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 1 ½ cups, about 5-10 minutes. Whisk the cornstarch and the remaining 2 tablespoons soy sauce together in a small bowl, then stir into pot. Cook until the sauce is glossy and thickened, about 2 minutes.
  8. Stir the remaining tablespoon of vinegar into the sauce and correct the seasoning. Slice the ribs between the bones and toss with the sauce.
  9. Serve on a platter garnished with cilantro.
