Asian-Style Beef Short Ribs - Crock-Pot




Short of pretending I don't live here, I can't deny it's time to roll up the old sleeves and restore some order to the casa. The health department would quarantine us if I'd let them in for an inspection. Rather than grouse and prolong the task, I've declared this to be the week we scour, squeak and shine. My daily routine is no more fascinating than your own, so I promise there'll be no blow by blow descriptions of what needs to be done. It does mean dinners and, therefore, recipes will be quick and simple. Today I'm going to braise beef short ribs in my crock-pot. This is an Asian-style recipe, so a handful of ingredients will produce an extremely flavorful meal. I plan to serve it with steamed rice and snap peas. It really doesn't get any easier than this. Let's get to it.


Asian-Style Beef Short Ribs

Ingredients:
4 to 5 pounds beef short ribs
1/4 cup chopped scallions, white and tender green
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup rice wine
1 teaspoon chili garlic sauce or sriracha
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons fresh minced ginger
2 teaspoons frsh minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 teaspoons sesame seeds

Directions:
1) Spray interior of a 5 to 6 quart crock-pot liner with nonstick spray. Place ribs in crock-pot.
2) Combine scallions, soy sauce, wine, chili garlic sauce, brown sugar, ginger, garlic and pepper in a small bowl. Whisk to combine. Pour over ribs. Cook on LOW until ribs are fork tender, about 6 to 7 hours.
3) Remove ribs to a platter. Tent with foil. Pour cooking liquid into a 1 quart saucepan. Skim off fat. Stir in sesame oil. Mix 1 tablespoon cornstarch with 1/4 cup water. Add to liquid and bring to a boil, cooking until sauce thickens. Spoon glaze over ribs. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Yield: 6 servings

I think I have only tried to make ribs once. They turned out terrible. I should try it again! My husband would love these!

These sound awesome...My crockpot would love to spend the day cooking these...and we would love to eat them! Yummy.

This looks great! I find that the short-ribs give off a LOT of fat, so I usually plan to make them the day before. The fat sets overnight in the fridge, and it's much easier to take off. Also the ribs have a chance to soak in more of the braising yummy flavor.

Long live the crock pot!
What a great kitchen tool.
The dinner sounds divine, all I need is a couple of napkins!

Jamie said...

Oh wow! This looks amazing! I assume that I could make it even without a crockpot? It looks too good not to try!

And now you have made me feel so darn guilty putting off all the cleaning I promised myself I'd be doing! Yuck! Well, he'll be happy with Asian-style short ribs (and maybe won't notice the house)!

Mary, I have never tried beef short ribs and have always wanted to try. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. All the flavors sound just wonderful together.

I love ribs cooked in the crockpot, they are so tender and you're right about the flavors.

Hooray for the crockpot, and the liners! There is a reason these suckers are making a comeback, and these ribs look delish! Good luck cleaning this week!

I NEED a new crockpot so I can make these. Mine broke.

I don't know about you, but when I cook ribs in a crock pot....they come out so VERY tender. This, once again, looks and sounds delicious Mary.

This recipe is just what I was looking for! Found some short ribs on sale and since I've never cooked with short ribs before I was hesitant but got them anyways. Who can pass up a good sale?

Can't wait to make it! Thanks!

Mary, thanks for this recipe. Believe it or not I've never used or owned a crock pot. Recently my sister-in-law loaned us a tiny one to use at our pied de terre in Florida during the winter and I'm looking for recipes. This sounds great.

Also make sure everything is plugged in correctly, it is pretty easy to mix up an
audio cord with a video cord without resizing it, this can easily cause a black screen with your PS3.

The song will be released with her latest and self-titled album, “Demi,” in May.
What they do care about is how the search entries, such
as “cosmetic dentistry your town” match with the key phrases on your video, so
that they can give the public exactly what it wants.
