Korean-Style Short Ribs

Several Christmases ago, Hayley (daughter and blog co-author) gifted me with a six-quart slow cooker. I’m in love with it and it’s perfect for making Korean-Style Short Ribs. Good short ribs are all about fall-off-the-bone goodness and a great sauce.  The SAUCE — every time I make these, I have to stop myself from eating it all before it even hits the ribs. Cooking time for these short ribs is about nine hours but they’re oh so worth it. — L. Weal
