  • Heat olive oil and sesame oil in a pot over medium-high heat and cook short ribs in batches until browned on all sides, 5 to 8 minutes. Place short ribs in a slow cooker.

  • Stir together soy sauce, vegetable broth, rice vinegar, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, and crushed red pepper flakes in a bowl. Pour sauce over short ribs. Cover slow cooker.

  • Cook on High until ribs are cooked through, about 4 hours. Remove ribs from sauce and keep warm.

  • Pour sauce into a pot and cook on medium-low heat until reduced, about 5 minutes. Remove as much grease as possible. Mix cornstarch and water together in a small bowl until smooth. Pour into sauce and cook until thickened, 1 to 3 minutes.

  • Pour sauce over short ribs and sprinkle sliced green onions on top.

I followed up until before the cornstarch part and did not have red pepper flakes. It turned out so good anyway! The Asian flavor was subtle and the remaining sauce was really good also on rice. Definitely recommend! I will try with red pepper flakes next time! Read More

My husband said it was ok. My daughter & I thought it needed a little something~like a little teriyaki sauce. My short ribs were a little tough, but i also didn't use my slow cooker. I will try this one again. Read More
