  1. Step 1

    In a large bowl, combine the brown sugar with the honey, soy sauce, ketchup, vinegar, garlic, ginger, salt, and cayenne pepper. Blend well.
  2. Step 2

    Add the country-style ribs to the sauce and turn to coat.
  3. Step 3

    Cut the onion in half lengthwise and slice it thinly. Arrange the sliced onion in the slow cooker; place the ribs and sauce on top of the onion.
  4. Step 4

    Cover the pot and cook on low for 5 to 7 hours, or until the pork is tender.
  5. Step 5

    Remove the ribs to a platter and tent with foil to keep warm.
  6. Step 6

    To thicken the sauce, pour the liquids into a saucepan (strain through a mesh sieve if you want a fairly clear sauce) and boil for about 3 to 5 minutes, or until reduced slightly and the flavors are concentrated. Combine the cornstarch with the 2 tablespoons of water and blend until smooth. Stir the cornstarch "slurry" into the liquids and continue cooking until thickened, stirring constantly.
  7. Step 7

    Drizzle the sauce over the ribs and then sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and chopped green onion tops, if using.
