   In a 3-1/2 quart slo cooker, combine ketchup, honey, vinegar, soy sauce, 
  five-spice powder, onion, ginger and garlic.  Position a broiler rack 6  
 inches from the source of the heat and preheat the broiler.  Broil the 
 ribs, turning once, until  browned. About 10 minutes. Transfer the ribs to 
 the slow cooker.  Stir to  coat the ribs with the sauce. Cover and slow 
 cook until ribs are tender. 5-6 hours at  200 degrrees (low).   Transfer 
 the ribs to a platter and cover with  aluminum foil to keep warm. Skim the 
 fat from the surface of the sauce. In  a medium saucepan bring the sauce 
 to a simmer over a medium heat. Cook  until reduced to about 1 C, 6-8 
 minutes. Stir in the cornstarch mixture  and cook just until thickened. 
 Pour the sauce over ribs and serve  immediately with hot cooked rice.
