Korean Bison Short Ribs

I love my crockpot!! I’ll sing it from the heavens: I LOVE MY CROCKPOT!! Recently, if there isn’t any food to pop in the oven or shove in the crockpot, we are not going to have dinner, lest we order in. It’s been so crazy with our baby girl only napping for 45 minute stretches at a time during the day.

DSC_0679This recipe was so good, I think I’m going to add it to my repertoire. It was extremely easy too! Go Michael Smith!

DSC_0675 (1)First things first, make your braising liquid.

DSC_0677 (1)Here it is, all ready to be poured into the crockpot the next morning.

DSC_0683In order to make sure the flavours hold and to give it that extra oomph, I browned the meat the day before and stored it in the fridge overnight.

DSC_0684In the morning, I popped everything into the crockpot and set on low for 8 hrs.

DSC_0685The house smells intoxicatingly delicious all day long!

DSC_0686I transferred the ribs to a baking dish, along with some of the braising liquid and the onions.

DSC_0687Then I broiled it on high for 3 minutes on each side, to give the ribs a nice crisp.

DSC_0689Serve on top of a bed of Jasmine rice, with a nice side salad, and revel in the joys that is crockpot cooking!

You will need:

5 lbs of Bison short ribs

1 large onion, diced

5 garlic cloves, crushed

4 cups low-sodium beef broth

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup soy sauce

2 tablespoons sesame oil

Jasmine rice, to serve

Begin by assembling your sauce by combining the broth, brown sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil,  diced onion and crushed garlic. In a large skillet, heat a small amount of oil and brown the short ribs on each side. Transfer to a plate, cover with saran wrap and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, throw short ribs and sauce into the crockpot and cook on low for 8 hrs. Start your rice. Before serving, broil ribs for 3 mins, turning to get both sides crispy. Serve on top of rice, topped with sesame seeds. Enjoy profusely!

    Where do you buy the bison short ribs? I have this cookbook (and many other Michael Smith ones!) and have looked at this recipe, but didn’t know where to buy this kind of meat…
