Korean Style Short Ribs (Crock Pot)

I'm always looking for new recipes to make in my crock pot. Here's another easy and tasty one. I finally got around to making this I used pork spare ribs. I cooked them longer till they were falling off the bone. The sauce has a very good flavor. My husband was pleasantly surprised at the flavor.I found this in Family Circle Magazine.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Blend soy sauce, sugar, oil, vinegar, ginger, garlic and red pepper in bowl.
  2. Place ribs in 5 quart slow cooker, add sauce. Cover, cook on High for 6 hours or Low for 9 hours, until meat is tender.
  3. Transfer ribs to a platter. Skim and discard excess fat from liquid. Combine cornstarch and 3 tablespoons water; blend with liquid in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat and cook for 2 minutes, stirring, until thickened. Stir in carrots. Top ribs with sauce, scallions and sesame seeds.
  4. Serve over cooked rice.

These rocked! I used pork spare ribs (the butcher cut them horizontally for me) and cut the meat back to 2 1/2 lbs but left the full amount of sauce. It was only just enough so next time I would basically triple the sauce amounts if I wanted to have it over rice.
Definitely a keeper in this house!

Wonderful, but heavy! next time I will trim more fat off of the ribs. We didn't have fresh ginger so I used ground ginger seasoning. The sauce is SUPERB!

YUM!!!! I made this tonight and we're licking plates. I trimmed the short ribs before cooking to take away some fat, and added Chinese 5 spice for a little heat. Everyone loved this dish and it will be on the menu often in our house. Thanks!
