Teriyaki Braised Short Ribs

Slow cooker recipe for short ribs

These short ribs are tender and sweet…and cook all day in the slow cooker while you’re out!

Last Sunday I took a break from cooking to enjoy a family dinner at a steakhouse in Costa Mesa. My son, Andrew, who is 9 and has the appetite of a linebacker, ordered the short rib entree of the main menu. The tender short ribs arrived on a pile of buttered noodles with a side of sour cream.

I may have drooled a little, looking up from my grilled sea bass and salad.

The very next night at home I served up my own version of short ribs, buttered noodles and sour cream – and this time I chowed down too. Andrew was halfway through his heaping plate when he realized that I had made the meal and that it was healthy- he had thought that it was from the steakhouse!

Oh that’s the very best, when the recipe hack is so good that it really tastes like the real thing 🙂 Enjoy!
