Asian Short Ribs

Posted by Lindsey On 4:06 PM

Let me tell you these were so mouth watering and tasty. One of the best meals we have made at home and it wasn't even much work at all. I made two batches of the sauce (one to marinade in overnight and then one to cook in) I am so glad I did this, the ribs had so much flavor and they just feel from the bone. I also seared the ribs before adding them to the crock pot. We served them with sauteed broccoli and jasmine rice.

Asian Short Ribs
from Real Simple Magazine
Suggested by Elizabeth's Edible Experiment

1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup rice vinegar
2 cloves of garlic, peeled and smashed
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
8 beef short ribs (about 4 pounds) We only made 4 short ribs (2 lbs)
4 medium carrots, peeled and halved crosswise
1 small green cabbage
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon sesame oil
4 scallions, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon fresh Italian parsley, finely minced

In a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker, combine the soy sauce, sugar, vinegar, garlic, ginger, and red pepper. Add the short ribs and carrots and arrange in a single layer. Lay the cabbage on top.

Cook, covered, on high for 5 to 6 hours (or on low for 7 to 8 hours)*, until the meat is tender and easily pulls away from the bone.

Transfer the cabbage, short ribs, and carrots to plates. With a large spoon or ladle, skim the fat from the cooking liquid and discard.

If the slow cooker is on the low setting, turn it to high. In a small bowl, whisk together the cornstarch with 1 tablespoon of water until smooth. Whisk into the cooking liquid and cook until thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the sesame oil half the parsley and scallions. Spoon the sauce over the short ribs and vegetables and sprinkle with the scallions (if using). Garnish with parsley and scallions.

Yield: Makes 4 servings
