The best meal Joe ever ate!

A few months ago I made this and Joe declared "this is the best meal I have ever eaten!" Just thought I would share it. I got it from a magazine (Family Circle).

Korean-Style Short Ribs (appropriate since we will soon be there)

1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
2 tablespoons sesame oil
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
4 cloves garlic crushed
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
5 pounds beef short ribs
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1.5 cups shreded carrots
3 scallions
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
3 cups cooked white rice

Blend soy sauce, sugar, oil, vinegar, ginger, garlic and red pepper in bowl.

Place ribs in 5 quart slow cooker, add sauce. Cover and cook on high for 6 hours or low for 9 hours until meat is tender.

Transfer ribs to a platter, skin and discard excess fat from liquid. Combine cornstarch and 3 tablespoons water. Blend with liquid in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat and cook for two minutes. Stir in carrots. Top ribs with sesame seeds. Serve with cooked rice.
