Korean-Style Short Ribs


I realized recently that I start a lot of my recipes here with “this is one of my favorite meals to make,” but it’s true! I love cooking and baking in general, but I love it even more when it’s something I enjoy putting together.

This is another one of those favorite meals: Korean-style short ribs. One of the reasons I like it so much is because the majority of it’s done in the crockpot, so a lot of the hard work is done for me and the house smells wonderful all day — how can you beat that? I like to serve it over white rice and garnish wish toasted sesame seeds and chopped green onion.

Korean-Style Short Ribs

1/2 c soy sauce
1/2 c packed light brown sugar (you can scale it down to 1/3 c)
2 Tb sesame oil
2 Tb rice vinegar
2 Tb minced fresh ginger
4 cloves of crushed garlic
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
5 lbs beef short ribs

3 Tb cornstarch
3 Tb cold water

Mix soy sauce, sugar, oil, vinegar, ginger, garlic and red pepper in a small bowl. Place ribs in a 5-quarter slow cooker and pour sauce over. Cover and cook on high for 6 hours or on low for 9 hours.

Transfer ribs to a platter, and skim and discard excess fat from liquid. Place liquid in a saucepan, combine cornstarch and water and add to liquid. Bring to a boil and cook for two minutes, stirring constantly, until thickened. Remove meat from ribs, place over rice and top with sauce, green onions and sesame seeds.

    I’m always on the lookout for FLAVORFUL crock pot meals. I find many to be too bland.

    I love korean food, but i don’t think i could wait 6 hours to eat, lol. If I was to try this recipes I would find a way to cut the time way down. I am assuming broiling would be faster, am i right?

    I made these yesterday and they were delicious. I browned the meat first and the finished product was deep, tantalizing brown. I also added some Chinese cabbage the last two hours. This is going to be a new favorite! Thanks for sharing!

    One of my favorite foods,
    I usually put fruits – pears, oranges, apples and kiwis – instead of sugar,,,which make ribs tender and juciy.
