Asian Short Ribs

Asian Short Ribs
I've been playing with this recipe for a while and think I've got it down now. My local asian market has most of these ingredients for dirt cheep. The 5 spice cost me about $1.29 and the Hoisin about the same for a 20 oz bottle.  You can get 2 whole vanilla beans at World Market for about 2 bucks, at the grocery store it's $10 for one bean.
3 lbs Beef short ribs
Salt and Pepper
1T olive oil or olive oil spray
5 Shallots
1/3 c rice wine vinegar
¼ c brown sugar
4T Chinese Five Spice
15 oz Hoisin Suace
1 cup water
3T grated Ginger
1 vanilla bean
1 orange

Salt and pepper short ribs on both sides. Heat skillet with spray olive oil and brown seasoned short ribs on both sides just until brown.  Place is crock pot with 5 peeled and halved shallots.  In skillet deglaze the pan with 1/3 cup rice wine vinegar, add ¼ cup brown sugar, 4 Tablespoons Five Spice, 15 oz Hoisin sauce, 1 cup water, 3T grated ginger and halved opened and scraped vanilla bean with pod bring to boil, add to crock pot with the zest of 1 orange and the juice. Cook on High for 3 hours. Serve with Coconut rice.  These were amazingly good.
