Crock-Pot Korean Pork Short Ribs

I think I am going through an adjustment period with my loft. I love it so much that it feels like I am on vacation every single day! Even going to the market feels so fun because everything is new to me. I went a little nuts at the fresh cheese counter and ended up with what felt like 100 pounds to carry home. I absolutely love city living! 

We had our first dinner guests the other night. I knew I would not have much time in the kitchen because I would be busy showing them around. So I threw this recipe together in the crock-pot. It was a huge hit. My husband says it goes on the "make again over and over" list.  These short-ribs fell off the bone. So tender and buttery. I served them with sticky rice, and you can find that recipe here

4 to 4 1/2 pounds pork short ribs

  1. YUM!! I love when you can get tender meat like this... and the sauce has my favorite flavors. I bet it does feel a bit like being on vacation since it's all new to you. Enjoy it for a long time. :)
