I love Rustan's Supermarket. I know I've said it a million times but I really do. They are more expensive than the average supermarket but they come out with such great deals such as this buy 1 kilo of short ribs, get 500g free. These kinds of deals really help us with our budget. We do our grocery shopping either once a month (yes, you read that right) or bi-monthly. But that's for another post on another day. For today, let's focus on these delicious short ribs.
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 beef cube
grated ginger or ginger powder as I don't like bits of ginger in my soup
optional salt (as needed)
1T cornstarch dissolved in some water
Let's do this!
In a bowl, mix together soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, ginger powder, sesame oil, grated pear and a cup of water.
Place the short ribs into your slow cooker or multicooker. Add the sauce.
Cover and cook at 140C for 2-3 hours. Check the amount of liquid every now and then. If it's getting drier, add some water. Taste after the 2-hour mark and adjust seasonings if needed.
Add the cornstarch slurry and cook for an additional 20 minutes until the sauce has thickened. Sprinkle with sliced leeks and sesame seeds. Serve with rice. Aside from the rice, I also served this with a side dish of cucumber salad and sprouts.
