Slow Cooker Asian Short Ribs - Literally fall-off-the-bone tender! And all you have to do is throw everything into a crockpot.That's it! No cooking at all!

When I hear the term short ribs, I think of tenderized meat just literally falling off the bone and melting in my mouth over and over and over again.

Now cooking short ribs to that tenderness can be a little finicky, unless you have a slow cooker. Then you don’t have to do anything.

Seriously.

The crockpot will literally do all the work for you. And you can even lie to your guests and tell them you’ve been slaving away in the kitchen to get these ribs just right.

They’ll believe you.

And this Asian-style-Korean-BBQ type marinade is out-of-this-world. You can even spoon the leftover sauce over rice too because you know you don’t want to waste a drop of that heavenly leftover sauce!
