Impressive enough for a dinner party or easy enough for a weeknight dinner, this Asian-inspired short rib recipe will have both friends and family singing your praises.
Heat the vegetable oil and sesame oil in a large, non-stick skillet set over medium-high heat. Brown ribs, in batches on all sides. Transfer the ribs to the slow cooker.
Whisk the teriyaki sauce with the ReaLemon*, brown sugar, cornstarch, Mirin, ginger, hot pepper sauce and garlic. Pour the mixture over the ribs. Cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 7 1/2 hours. Add the peppers and cook for 20 to 30 minutes or until the ribs are so tender that the meat is almost falling off the bone. Transfer the ribs and peppers to a platter. Sprinkle with green onion and sesame seeds. Serve with cooked rice.
