Slow Cooker Korean Short Rib Tacos

What happens when you combine Korean-flavored slow-cooked short ribs…

sweet and spicy cucumber-carrot slaw…

and put them in a tortilla?

A freakishly good taco, folks.

Go get the recipe and check out the step-by-step post on the Tasty Kitchen Blog!

(A big thanks to Shelbi who blogs at Look Who’s Cookin’ Now for the recipe!)

P.S. It came to my attention over the weekend that I failed to announce the winner of the Weelicious cookbook giveaway! The winner was comment #46 — Heidi Babi, who said…

“My guy used to be a picky eater (lived on Taco Bell and Little Caesars). We gradually introduced things (like onions and other vegetables) chopped up so small that he didn’t realize they were in there. Now, he will try just about anything!

Congrats to Heidi for winning the book and making such awesome progress with her son!

    Being a native Korean, when I hear food and Korean together, I perk up! This looks amazing, both photos and recipe!

    I saw the taco picture on the TK blog and was instantly like “Oh Natalie….ohhhhh Natalie..” Tacos are by far one of the best meals on the planet as far as I’m concerned. Your slaw looks delicious and slow-cooked meat is definitely one of my faves. I’ve never had Korean food and we happen to have short ribs in the freezer…looks like this is occurring in my crock soon!!

      Haha…I completely agree. Tacos are the bomb. So it slow cooked meat. I think I could live on those two things alone!

    What I love about this is that it turns a traditionally heavy meat dish into something light and refreshing!

    oh wow, these look amazing! I love that you put the slaw on it, it’s so nice to have something crisp and refreshing to cut some of the richness from the meat. I think my husband will love this! Bookmarking the recipe right now :)

      It IS nice to cut through the richness. I didn’t realize how fatty short ribs can be, even if they’re from grass-fed beef which is typically lean.

    You’re killing me. Tacos are my favorite food. Pretty sure that I’m going to need to make these this week!

      That’s why we’re friends. I’m in love with tacos, too. Maybe your hubs won’t roll his eyes at you because they’re ASIAN tacos.

    Yummy! I need to see if I can find this cut of beef in Germany. Supposedly they’re called “falsche Rippen” but who knows if I can actually find them. If I do, I’m definitely making this!
