With Kelly being out in SF, the perfect weekend rolled around – straight chillin, sports all the time, an entire couch to stretch my legs, peace & quiet 😉 , all culminating to watching the NBA All-Star weekend festivities on TNT.
So I decided to make some slow-cooked, meat falling off the bone ribs for this awesome event. But not BBQ marinated – Korean BBQ marinated. And thus begins my first cooking blog. Im an avid amateur cook who has pulled off some spectacular plates and cuisines, but this will definitely be the first.
(1.) Go to Costco for your meat. Maybe it’s a bit better out here since it’s the Midwest, but the cuts are spectacular. This entire slab of ribs. 9lbs of meat. $25.00. Redonkulous. And just to clarify – a Costco slab is actually TWO full slabs of ribs. Wowozers. For this recipe one full slab of ribs, froze the other one, cut it in half so it could fit in the crockpot. Salt and peppered the ribs. Put into crock pot.
(2.) Marinated the meat in the crockpot I wanted to slow cook them in. Overnight marinade.
The marinade is made up of the following:
- ½ cup of soy sauce
- ¼ cup of sesame oil
- 1/3 cup of brown sugar
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 whole onion
- 2 green onion
- Black and pepper to taste
Poured onto meat in the crock pot. Put in refrigerator overnight to marinate.
(3.) Plugged it in at 10:00am. Put it on low. And waited for 8hrs. Yup. All. Day. Long.
(4.) After 8hours of cooking, “re-saucing” the meat every 2 hours and smelling the nice Korean flavors emanating from the kitchen, the ribs were ready.
(5.) But I wanted a crispy broil to them (forgot to do this before putting into crockpot and cooking). Broiled them for 5-7min.
(6.) Prepare sizable portion size of the ribs on a bed of thinly cut cabbage. Pour more sauce over meat. Huge smile over my face. Amazing fall off the bone tenderness. Wonderful Korean BBQ flavor.
