- Heat a grill pan. Drizzle olive oil over the ribs, and sprinkle salt & pepper. Grill each side for just about one minute on high heat, till grill makes appear. This is just to lock in a seared flavor, the ribs will still be mostly raw.
- In a slow cooker, combine the soy sauce, sugar, vinegar, garlic, ginger, and red pepper. Add the short ribs, making sure they are covered.
- Cook, covered, on medium for 4 to 5 hours or until the meat is tender. Once the meat is finished, remove any fat and place aside.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the sauce ingredients till smooth. Cut open a bun and add some of the meat. Spoon the sauce over the short rib sandwich, sprinkle with chow mein, and serve.
