Hawaiian Braised Wagyu Short Rib Steamed Buns

131

The Fullblood Wagyu beef short ribs are seared to achieve a nice caramelization and crust before being slow-cooked in a crockpot for several hours. The tenderness of the beef, allows it to easily fall apart. Serve on steamed buns and top with pickled vegetables that are marinated in pickle brine.
