The other day I got a flat tire. This was my first flat tire and typically when these things happen, I would tell my husband and new tires would magically appear (like, for him, new recipes for dinner magically appear!). This time, though, he was on a flight to China, so I was stranded… At least until he landed in Shanghai.
It was Sunday and I had planned on going to the grocery store to fill the cabinets with goodies for some new recipes that had been in my head for the better part of the week, but with the flat tire, I took stock of what I had and, pleasantly found I had the makings of a really delicious braised Korean short ribs dish.
Korean grilled short ribs are one of the most popular dishes in Korean restaurants. The ribs have a combination of sweet and savory flavors, which I like a lot. Traditionally, korean pear is used as a tenderizer, but I decided to go with a pineapple instead to add more tropical flavor. First, I seared the ribs in a pan and then braised the ribs in the oven for couple of hours until they fork tender and practically falling off the bone. The taste is simply fantastic, salty and sweet at the same time, flavored with garlic, onion, ginger, pineapple, orange and soy sauce. Serve it with rice, sesame seeds, green onions and sliced jalapeño peppers if desired.
By the way, my husband landed and organized new tires for me, so I hopefully will get to those other recipes this week!
I am bringing this sticky goodness to Angie’s Fiesta Friday!
