1 1/2 cups
minced fresh ginger root
2 1/2 cups
pear, peeled and grated
kiwi, peeled and mashed
ground black pepper
beef short ribs
carrot, cut into large dice
potatoes, peeled, cut into large chunks
chopped green onions
yellow onion, cut into large dice

My family really enjoy the short ribs. I made a few changes to the recipe. 1 bag of carrots. 4 potatoes. I did not add green onion, water chestnuts or mushroom. I will definitely make this again and pass the recipe on to my friends and family.
I must have used the incorrect Soy Sauce, because 1 1/2 cups made the sauce inedible because it was too salty........I never even added the extra salt that the recipe called for. Since the sauce was so overpowering with salt I have no idea what the real flavor was..........
Really good recipe! Easy and simple. Very sweet and salty. The only thing I recommend is adding an extra cup of water to the sauce.
Don't be put off by all the ingredients - these ribs are amazing! I omitted the kiwi and the shiitake mushrooms (forgot to buy them) and could probably have done without the water chestnuts. My only minor complaint is that everything turned out rather salty (and I love salt!). Other than that, we couldn't get enough. Thanks, I'll be making these again!
To be honest at first I had my doubts about this recipe but it turned out so well, I will definitely make it again! It was well worth the time and effort, my family was very pleased with the end results : )
This recipe is very yummy. I will totaly make this again. The only problem I had was that the meat felt like it had tiny little slivers of bone all through it. I have never cooked spare ribs before so I have no idea what this problem is. The flavor was great though. I would use this recipe again perhaps with a different kind of meat. Thanks!
This was really sumptuous ! The beef was so tender, and the flavor was just enough sweet and salty. I added 1 sweet potatoes as well, butternut squash would be good too :) One thing I did was I used few chunks of caneloupe, and few chunks for honey dew in replace of the pear and kiwi. Why not, it was leftover from a fruit salad. The substitution did not change flavor in the dish. The sauce was so good over rice. If you think it's not garlicky enough, then add some more garlic powder as I do to any dish anyways... and lots of cracked black pepper. YUM !!!
This recipe is now a family favorite! We really enjoyed making it, an authentic aroma filled the house. Simple, tasty, messy but fun. At some point I will try different flavors like extra garlic or a spicy element. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
