Anyway, everyone loved the short ribs and one friend even requested the leftovers (which I considered as a huge compliment since he's such a good cook himself!)
Thanks to Stephanie O'Dea, author of one my new favorite blogs: A Year of Slow Cooking.
Crockpot Korean Short Ribs
--package of beef short ribs
--1 cup soy sauce
--1 cup brown sugar
--5 whole jalapeno peppers
--1/2 cup water
Place solid beef ribs into the crockpot.
Add the soy sauce, water, and brown sugar.
Add the whole jalapenos on top (Do not cut them!)
Cook on low for 7-8 hours. Half way you might want to rotate the short ribs so any exposed meat gets saturated in juice.
We ate it with white rice and sauteed spinach the first time, white rice and baby bok choy the second time.
