Preheat your slow cooker to the “browning/saute” setting to sear the ribs.** Meanwhile, cut the ribs into smaller pieces, about 2 to 3 ribs/bones each.
Add the oil into the preheated slow cooker and brown the ribs on both sides.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, orange juice, brown sugar, vinegar, cooking wine, garlic, ginger, chili paste, chili flakes, pepper powder, and sesame oil. Then pour over the ribs.
Cook on high for 3 to 4 hours or on low for 6-7 hours.
When ready to eat, preheat oven to broil and line a baking pan with parchment paper (for easy clean up).
Remove the ribs from the slow cooker and place them onto the prepared baking pan. With a spoon, skim off any excess oil in the sauce remaining in the slow cooker.
Then, pour the sauce into a small saucepan heat over medium heat. In a small bowl, whisk together the corn starch and water, and add it into the sauce while whisking.
Then sauce should thicken when heated through. Gently drench the ribs in the glaze and then return to the baking pan. Set the baking pan 6-inch from the broiler. Broil the ribs for 3 to 5 minutes, or until bubbly and slightly caramelized. Sprinkle green onion and sesame seeds on top and enjoy!
