3-4 lbs Pork Spareribs
Kosher Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper
1/2 Chili Sauce
1/4 Cup Orange Marmalade
1/4 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar
2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
3 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
1 teaspoon Cumin
1 Tablespoon Freshly Grated Ginger
2 Cloves Garlic, minced


Prepare the spareribs by removing the skirt on the back side of the ribs.  It looks like  random piece of meat on the back.  Also remove the membranes, which are a white film on the back side of the ribs.  Get under the corner of the membranes with a knife, get a good grip on it and pull straight up.  Cut the spareribs up into individual ribs, season with salt and pepper and place in the slow cooker.

Whisk together chili sauce, orange marmalade, vinegar, soy sauce, brown sugar, cumin, ginger and garlic in a small bowl.  Pour over the ribs in the slow cooker.  Cook on low for 6 hours.


Yield: 4-6 Servings
