Before I get started, pin this recipe right now!  Seriously.  Go do it.  I’ll wait.

This is the BEST slow cooker recipe of all time.

Let me start out by saying that I have become obsessed with Korean food.  The flavors are unbelievable.

One of my favorite Korean recipes is Bulgogi – it’s basically a beef stir fry recipe but on steriods.  A friend of mine made it for me a few years ago and I have been hooked on Korean food ever since.

I’ve been trying to incorporate the Korean flavors I love into many of my recipes, like these easy Korean Pork Chops, these Korean Sticky Wings and these Korean Short Ribs.

All of these recipes are packed with so much flavor and all of them are easy to make.

Now, let me tell you about these ribs.  The shining star of this recipe is the sticky sauce.

You could slather this stuff on a flip flop and it would be incredible.

I used baby back ribs for this recipe, but you could easily use regular spare ribs.

The recipe starts with a simple rub.  You can do this part up to 24 hours before you cook them.  Do it the night before and save yourself some time in the morning.

Same goes for the sauce.  Mix it up the night before and you’ll be all set in the morning.

These are definitely a keeper in my book! It definitely is the BEST slow cooker recipe of all time!
