Ingredients For Braising

  • 3 pounds bone-in short ribs, thick cut
  • 1/2 cup raw apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water, filtered
  • salt

Honey Ginger Glaze Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoon peeled and grated fresh ginger
  • 3 tablespoons raw honey
  • 1 teaspoon raw apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon chili flakes (I like Gochugaru – Korean chili flakes)

Instructions For Grassfed Short Ribs With Honey Ginger Glaze

  1. Place short ribs in crockpot on low heat. Sprinkle with a touch of salt. Pour apple cider vinegar and water over ribs.
  2. Slow cook for 8 hours or until ribs are falling off the bone.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small mixing bowl, stir together ingredients for Honey Ginger Glaze, set aside.
  4. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  5. Once tender, remove ribs from crockpot and place on a baking sheet or ceramic or glass bakeware, spreading apart by at least 2 inches
  6. Spoon or brush glaze over ribs. Roast until surface of meat is browned and edges are crisping, about 10 minutes. Be watchful to avoid burning near the end.


  • 2-3 small turnips, julienne or thinly sliced
  • 2 carrots, julienne or thinly sliced
  • 1 scallion, julienne or thinly sliced
  • Optional: 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • Optional: 1 teaspoon gluten free tamari
  • Optional: 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seed oil

Toss sliced veggies with remaining honey ginger glaze and serve with short ribs and pan juices.
