  1. Step 1

    Mix the brown sugar and flour in a large saucepan. Add the water, then add the vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, ketchup, tomato paste, honey, Dijon mustard, ginger, salt, and pepper. Cook and stir over medium heat until boiling. Simmer for 5 to 10 minutes until the sauce is thickened.
  2. Step 2

    Layer the ribs with the chopped onions in a 4- to 6-quart crock pot, spooning the sauce over each layer.
  3. Step 3

    Cover the slow cooker and cook on Low for 10 to 12 hours or on High for 5 to 6 hours or until the ribs are very tender and glazed and they register at least 160 F on a meat thermometer.
  4. Step 4

    At this point, you can remove the ribs and place them on a broiler pan. Brush with some of the glaze from the slow cooker and brown under the broiler until dark brown. While the ribs are browning, put some of the sauce in a small saucepan and boil until thickened and reduced. Serve this sauce with the ribs and lots of napkins!
