I’m not used to cooking short ribs any other way than in a crockpot so I was a little worried about how these turned out and to my surprise they were actually really good! I think next time I may boil them just a tad longer so they will be more tender, but the flavor is there and you still get that yummy grilled taste without smoking them for hours.

In a medium-sized saucepan, bring the marinade to a boil, then reduce the heat and let thicken. Drizzle over the ribs.

Serve hot!

 

*You can find hoisin sauce in most grocery stores in the Asian aisle.

*It’s 100% mandatory for maximum yum factor to reserve the marinade and thicken it as a sauce. Smother those ribs!

*You will most likely have extra sauce. Pour it on rice, chicken, salmon, etc to transform those dishes into winners as well!
