I recently saw a picture of Korean Short Ribs on a blog I follow. They looked incredible. I've never had short ribs before but the recipe sounded simple and delicious. I went to the market and had to ask for help in the meat department finding the short ribs. The recipe called for 5 pounds of them, but all my market had left were 2 ½ pounds, so I took them.
One thing I loved about this recipe was that it went in the crock-pot and I could leave it while I went to work. I got a text in the middle of the day from my husband telling me how good the short ribs smelled. When I walked in the house that night it was all I could do not to run to the crock-pot and have my dinner.
