chinese short ribs

recipe on the blog. this is a family favorite that my mom makes, but I modified it to cook in the slow cooker so it's even easier.

    OMG, this looks so good. I have to make this! Do you think I could make it in a regular pot? I don't have a slow cooker...
  • maryse 4y

    this looks good. i'm going to try it.
  • Erin 4y

    1035 yep, regular pot would be fine! You might need a touch more liquid. Just simmer it for about 3 hours? Or until tender.

  • Erin 4y

    Lee Davenport i know! it steamed up so fluffy :)
  • cauchy09 4y

    ohhhh. this looks so lovely.

    how big is your slow cooker? i'm trying to decide what to get.
  • Erin 4y

    cauchy09 pretty positive I got the 6-quart. 6.5 quart? Oval. Crock Pot brand. It's pretty large; I like it for making big things, and they can sit in nearly a single layer (not exactly). It actually came with a small "dip" crock pot too (which I've yet to use).

    These look great! Do the ribs need to be submerged in liquid when they're cooking in the slow cooker?
  • cauchy09 4y

    Erin thanks. then maybe i'll go for the big one. i assume it's okay to cook smaller amounts in the bigger pot.
  • maryse 4y

    cauchy09 you want the cooker to be at least 1/2 to 3/4 full. i have a 6 qt but ended up getting a 3qt as well because a lot of the things i make just don't fill the 6qt.
  • cauchy09 4y

    maryse ok. that makes sense. i'll start with a 3qt then and see if a big one is necessary. thanks!
  • Erin 4y

    cauchy09 yeah It's not actually ok to cook smaller amounts in a bigger pot--you'd have issues with timing/burning if so.
