Rated as 3.71 out of 5 Stars

"Great for the winter time, low maintenance recipe, once the beef is stewing. It's a soy sauce-based beef stew, sweet and salty."

  1. Score the surface of each beef short rib in a diamond pattern. Combine beef, green onion, carrots, garlic, ginger, soy sauce, and brown sugar in a large skillet. Pour enough water to cover the beef. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer until beef is tender, about 1 hour. Skim off excess oil before serving.

I would also add mirin, Chinese dates, toasted pine nuts. Overall a decent basic recipe
