These Slow Cooker Korean Short Ribs are one of the best slow cooker recipes of all time.
It is with a heavy heart that I confess to you how late I was to the Korean BBQ train. Seriously, how I went over 30 years of life without discovering the deliciousness that it is, I will never understand. I’ll blame some of it on my rural upbringing, but OH MY GOODNESS! It’s so tasty!
I discovered that I loved it living near my husband’s last duty station – in the less than glamorous Dover, DE. We always look for new places to try when we move to new places, and we thought we would try out this Korean BBQ/sushi joint that was nearby. I am so glad we did!
We have since moved, and no longer have a good place to get Korean BBQ, so what’s a girl to do? Make her own of course!
The beauty of this recipe is that you can dump everything directly into the slow cooker, with little prep work at all! I mix my sauce directly in the slow cooker, then add my ribs in – one less bowl to have to wash.
I like to reserve about 1/4 cup of the sauce to pour onto the ribs before I serve it – and I scoop that out before I add the ribs into the slow cooker. This just adds a little flavor boost to the finished dish.
I typically serve this over white rice, but they really go well with most anything. I have served it with my super simple Parsley Potatoes and Sugar Snap Peas and that makes one heck of a delicious meal.
