Replied to asian-style braised short ribs

Jun 27, 2014 on

I forgot to mention I used a crockpot. I let the broth chilled in frig, then removed most of the fat, then proceeded to reduce sauce the next day and served.

Very tasty, but a little salty for me.

Served with Asian Coleslaw, rice and Asian style green beans

Misinformation given? It's not likely that this is baked at 450 degrees for two hours. I baked at 350 for 1 hour and 10 minutes, I used minute brown...

I have made some alterations over the years.
Sometimes I don't have dark rum, light works just fine. Use the dried fruits you like to total 4 cups. I buy 1/4 cup ginger root and make my own crystalized ginger, cooking it a little...

I made this in a small electric skillet at work. I cut the recipe in half, used chicken broth, adding no salt. Did add 2 tablespoons chopped sun dried tomato, stirred in a little half and half at the end to make it look and taste creamy.
Out of butter and cheese. Didn't miss it. Very attractive on the plate and tasted great with my roasted...
