Galbi (Korean Beef Short Ribs) in Slow Cooker

I know this is a late post of my sneak peek from a few days ago, but I thought I’d post it anyways. And you should really try this ASAP. I’m gaining a newfound appreciation for my slow cooker these days, because it makes life so much easier. I used sliced galbi for this, but I recommend using blocks instead like I did here and here. The beef was sotender, like “melt in your mouth” tender, that the already small pieces had all fallen off the bones and broken into pieces. Live and learn, right?

Galbi in Slow Cooker

Ingredients:

  • 4 lbs beef short ribs
  • 12 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 6 green onions, chopped
  • 3 tbsp minced ginger
  • 1/4 brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup cooking sake
  • 2-3 tbsp red pepper flakes
  • toasted sesame seeds

Instructions: Combine garlic, green onions, ginger, brown sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, vinegar, sake, red pepper and flakes in the slow cooker, and stir making sure sugar dissolves. Add ribs and cover thoroughly with mixture. Cover with lid, and cook on low for 8-10 hours or on high for 4-6 hours. Plate and garnish with toasted sesame seeds and more green onions. These are all ingredients I have in the kitchen already which makes me very happy. Remember, I used sliced short ribs, but I don’t recommend this. Go for blocks like I did here and here. Look how pretty everything looks together. I like to chop my green onions diagonally, because they look fancier that way. Mix everything making sure the sugar dissolves. Go ahead and taste to see if you approve. I sliced my galbi slices into three, so it was one bone per piece. Then I stood them up so that they fit to get even coverage. I was really pleased at how perfectly they fit in the slow cooker. After cooking on low for 8 hours, all of the meat had fallen off the bones. And the flavor was delicious! I am guilty, however, of opening the lid several times and taking samples, while it was cooking. You can’t be in the house, smell this all day, and notdo that.

What do you think? How easy was that?
