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!

Dad and Hubby both give 5 stars. I thought it was heavy, but I'm a picky eater. Thanks for making me look good

This was very quick, easy to prepare, and delicious. I didn't have enough carrots (just 2 small ones) so I served them alongside in a stir fry of celery, carrots, garlic, and sesame oil. I started the crock pot on high, but the ribs were starting to look like they were going to burn, so I turned them on low about 4 hours in. They were fall-apart done by 5 hours, so you need to be aware that your crock pot's heat may vary from the 6 hours called for in the recipe. At the end, I turned the pot back on high, took the ribs out, and added the cornstarch slurry. There was plenty of heat to thicken the sauce, so there was no extra dirty pot to wash. I highly recommend this dish, and thoroughly discourage you try it with full-sodium soy sauce. The low-sodium provided more than enough salty flavor. (Hubby just said, "those ribs were good!" (He only comments on exceptionally good dishes.) So try this one - you won't be sorry.

I've never tried short ribs before. This recipe was delicious! I had 3 lbs of ribs and it took about 7 hours. The sauce was fantastic but there wasn't enough of it if you want extra sauce to pour over your rice. Next time I make this, I'll definitely double the sauce. Thanks for the great recipe!

wow. i couldnt believe how delicious this was!! i had been looking for a good Korean BBQ short ribs recipe, and hadn't found one finally did and this is amazing. just like my favorite restaurant makes it. very sweet and savory at the same time. <br/>i realized my package was only 1.5 lbs of "short rib" meat (with bones) and the sauce looked like just enough to cover the meat in my large crock pot - so i am glad i used the original sauce measurements. i think i had way too much sauce, but i'd rather have too much sauce than not enough. once i added the cornstarch though, it thickened up to molasses consistency- not sure if i should have just added a little cornstarch to start. i eliminated carrots and just added scallions on top, served with white rice.

These ribs were tasty. I used bone out ribs which reduced the cooking time & sauce production, but they were trim and tasty! We'll add this to our monthly meals for sure.

Loved this recipe. 6 hrs. on high worked great and I used 3 lbs. of bone in beef ribs, so the resulting sauce was perfect. Kids and hubby gave it two thumbs up.
