My mother, Shu-Lai Fong, makes famous pressure-cooked black bean spareribs. They're the inspiration for this recipe, which is just as delicious but uses a slow cooker. You'll find bite-size bone-in pork spareribs at most Asian grocery stores, or you can order them at your butcher's counter.

In slow cooker, stir together spareribs, 1-1/4 cups water, onion, black bean garlic sauce, garlic, ginger, chili garlic paste and pepper.

Cover and cook on low until spareribs are tender, about 6 hours. With slotted spoon, remove spareribs. Skim off fat in slow cooker.

Combine cornstarch with 2 tbsp water; stir into cooking liquid. Cover and cook on high until thickened, about 20 minutes. Return spareribs to slow cooker, stirring to coat. Top with green onion.
