Two and a half years ago the Husband and I married. We received all sorts of lovely kitchen gifts (more for me, I think) that went unused due to our move to Thailand. Since returning state side, I have taken full advantage of using all my (I mean, our) wedding gifts.
I cleared some counter space, took out the crock pot, and created the most delicious Korean style beef shorts ribs. Here is my recipe.
What you will need:
5 lbs of beef short ribs
1/2 c. low sodium soy sauce
1/2 c. packed light brown sugar
2 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp rice vinegar
2 tbsp ginger, grated (minced)
8 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tbsp crushed red pepper (or more if you like heat)
What you will do:
1. Place ribs in crock pot
2. Mix remaining ingredients and pour over ribs. Cook on high for 6-7 hours or low for 9+ hours.
That’s it! Easy Peasy! I served this with rice and a warm vegetable salad (see below for recipe)
* Periodically give a stir to the ribs. Trim fatty parts of ribs before hand. The ribs will give off a lot of oil, so as the ribs are cooking skim off fat.
* To create a sauce once ribs are cooked, remove from crock pot and set aside. Remove liquid that has rendered down into a sauce pot on medium/high. Use a cornstarch slurry to thicken (2 tbsp water to 1 tbsp cornstarch, mix in a bowl ahead of time and then pour into sauce pan).
