Slow Cooker Barbecue Ribs

07.04.11 by Jackie

I'm a huge fan of fall-off the bone, super tender beef ribs. My trick is to marinate them overnight with (I used an Asian pear purée and ground papaya mixture) to tenderize the meat. The following day, I cooked them, wrapped in aluminum foil, for several hours in a slow cooker. Lastly, I smothered them in barbecue sauce and place them on a barbecue grill.

July 4th isn't the same without beef ribs. I don't make them that often because I find it quite time-consuming and the result is pretty meager for the amount of work. What I mean by that is that there is very little meat falling off the bone. What can I say, I'm very greedy when it comes to eating meat! Purists will probably think it's wrong to par-boil or steam the ribs in a slow cooker because flavors are lost. But the slow cooker method guarantees that they turn out very tender.

Korean BBQ Beef Ribs

Even though the weather wasn't as sunny as I would have expected, we still used our barbeque grill this weekend. Specifically, we grilled 3 pounds of Korean-style beef ribs. We devoured and licked every piece until there were only bones left. I buy beef ribs at a local Korean store; you'll notice there are 3 types of ribs. I always choose the most tender one, which is the most expensive. In addition to the finest quality of meat, I always marinate the meat with a sweet tenderizer: Asian pear. I've used papaya paste in the past as well as buttermilk, but I find that the fruit purée adds a pleasant sweetness to the grilled meat dish.

I usually serve these with a bowl of steamed jasmine rice and pickled cabbage on the side. However, I would recommend eating them in moderation because of they're high in cholesterol.

How to Cook Tender Beef Short Ribs Recipe

Since I got married, I have to admit I eat a lot less meat than I used to because Lulu's a vegetarian. But that doesn't mean I don't still enjoy a large portion of meat once in a while.

If you’ve come to the site before, you've probably seen that in previous recipes I often use acid-based marinades to tenderize and flavor meat. Today, I cooked Korean-cut beef short ribs (called galbi), and I again made an acidic marinade. The marinade consists of buttermilk, a little dark soy sauce, horseradish mustard, honey, cooking wine and olive oil. The preparation is very fast and easy. Just marinate the ribs overnight in a glass baking dish. Once you're ready to eat, simply pan-sear the meat for about 10 minutes total on both sides. You'll have a feast with very little time spent in the kitchen!
