SLOW COOKER BEER-BRAISED ASIAN STYLE SHORT RIBS
Prep Time: 5 minutes + 4-12 hours marinating time
Cook Time: 55 minutes pressure cooker/4-8 hours slow cooker
Yields: 8 servings
- 4-5 lbs beef short ribs
- Old No. 1 Universal BBQ Blend
- 1/4 cup rice vinegar
- 1/4 cup soy sauce*
- 1 12-oz can of Boise Brewing Snowboarder Porter* ** (make sure to have additional cans available to enjoy with your meal!)
- 4 garlic cloves, crushed
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
- 2 tbsp cornstarch
- honey (for drizzling)
Season short ribs with Old No. 1 until all surfaces are covered. Place them in a ziplock bag with the rice vinegar, soy sauce*, Snowboarder Porter* **, sesame oil, and garlic cloves. Marinate for at least 4 hours or overnight, turning once.
Dump entire bag of ribs and marinade, into pressure cooker or slow cooker. Set pressure cooker to high and cook for 45 minutes. If using a slow cooker, cook on high for 4 hours or low for 7-8 hours.
When ribs are done, set oven to broil. Remove the short ribs to a baking sheet.
Pour juices from slow cooker or pressure cooker through a strainer into a gravy separator. Allow fat to separate from juices.
Brush short ribs with honey. Place under broiler for 5-7 minutes, until honey starts to caramelize.
While ribs are under the broiler, pour juices into a medium saucepan. Whisk cornstarch into 1/4 cup cold water. Pour cornstarch mixture into the saucepan with the juices and heat over medium high heat. When mixture comes to a boil, turn heat to low. Simmer until sauce is thickened, about 5 minutes.
Serve sauced ribs over steamed rice with kimchi.
Beer: Obviously Snowboarder Porter is not gluten free, but there are some good gluten-free beers around, like Ground Breaker Dark Ale with similar notes of chocolate and caramel. Check your local Whole Foods or natural grocery store.
Soy Sauce: Substitute an equal amount of coconut aminos for the soy sauce.
Cornstarch: Cornstarch is generally gluten free. However, try a brand that is gluten free, such as Bob’s Red Mill(produced in a dedicated facility) to avoid cross-contamination issues.
