Korean Braised Short Rib Stew Content
This recipe is inspired by one of our very favorite Gabli spots in Los Angeles: Sun Nong Dan. It’s one of our favorite dishes in the whole world—feel free to top with shredded mozzarella cheese if you want to really create the Sun Nong Dan experience.
Soak short ribs for 1 hour or more in cold water. Discard the water and rinse the meat.
Heat oven to 350°F. Add short ribs to a large braiser or dutch oven and cover with soy sauce, sugar, sake, Spicy Seasoned Salt, apple juice, chopped garlic, ginger, and enough water to mostly cover the short ribs (about 2–3 cups).
Bring to a boil, then top with a lid and braise in the oven for 3 hours, or until the short ribs are completely tender. Check the liquid throughout and add additional water, as needed, to be sure short ribs continue to be mostly submerged.
Once the meat is tender, add carrots, onions, potatoes, and rice cakes, then recover and cook in the oven for an additional 30 minutes.
Serve topped with scallions and sesame seeds, spooning the stew over steamed rice.
