    Sue Lau's Note:

    Very tender chunks of meat with a great Asian flavor that will melt in your mouth. Not too spicy, but you can add more pepper if you like it hotter. You can buy five-spice powder, a spice much like star anise, in most Oriental markets. Goes great with rice and steamed or stir-fried veggies for a nice Asian meal.

      The sauce had a nice mellow flavor and the meat was quite tender. We enjoyed this, but next time we'll cook it on a bit higher setting (meat was borderline rare) and throw in some garlic to give it a boost.

      I think this is very tasty and a great surprising twist on short ribs! That is, I really wouldn't think of the Asian style used with short ribs. Very tender and good flavor. Extremely easy to make and had all of the ingredients except the five spice. Now I will search for other recipes to use it with! Thanks for a great and different crock pot recipe!

      Very, very fact the most tender ribs I've ever eaten from a crockpot. Although I was worried that there wasn't enough liquid, the ribs turned out delicious and browned. I used country pork ribs, as I cannot get short beef ribs here, and made half the recipe. Using High heat, ribs were "falling off the bone" tender in under 4 hours. There was very little juice left in the crockpot, but I believe cooking them in so little liquid made them even better than cooking them in lots of liquid. The liquid would make a good basting sauce for the grill. next time I may add even a little more brown sugar. Good recipe!
