Recently we were at a friends house for dinner and she had made Slow Cooker Korean Short Ribs for us. I’m not surprised that we all loved it and went back for seconds (and we might have even had small thirds, wink-wink)! My daughter raved about it for a couple of days after we had it and you’d think that I never cooked anything yummy for her by the way she went on and on about it, lol!
So naturally I called my friend and asked for the recipe so I could share it with you guys here on The Best Blog Recipes. I had to laugh when we were going over the ingredient list…. a bunch of different spices, onions, soy sauce, MY CHOICE OF MEAT??? What? I thought it was a “Short Rib” recipe!?! Nope…. this is an interchangeable recipe and you can use a couple of different cuts of meat, depending on what you have in the house that day.
So my meat of choice was Brisket for this recipe. I love how I can cook it in the slow cooker and not have a ton of fat to skim off like I do with a chuck roast or actual short ribs, but feel free to use whichever you like and have in the freezer 🙂
