  11. Add the minced garlic and grated ginger, sauté for about 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
  12. Return the short ribs to the pan.
  13. Add the soy sauce and honey, stirring to coat the ribs.
  14. Reduce the heat to low, cover the pan, and let it simmer for about 1 hour, or until the ribs are tender and the sauce has thickened.
