Ever since I started incorporating meat back into my diet in December I’ve become obsessed with short ribs. I’ve cooked them in the crockpot, I’ve seared them off and finished them in the oven, and recently I’ve gilled them with the most ah-mazing marinated that I just couldn’t keep the recipe to myself. I would consider myself a foodie and one of my all-time favorite styles of food is Korean BBQ, specifically Kalbi, a traditional Korean BBQ dish of marinated short ribs cooked on a grill. I’ve altered this receipt from one I love on but feel free to head to the original recipe for a different take on a great meal. Enjoy!

What You’ll Need:

  • 3 strips of beef short ribs
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, diced
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

Coat beef strips in brown sugar making sure to evenly cover. Place in a Ziploc back and let sit at room temperature for 10 minutes.

While beef is resting prepare marinade whisking remaining ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Pour marinade in Ziploc bag with beef and seal tightly letting it sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes.

Heat grill to medium-hot. Grill short ribs to desired doneness, about 4 to 5 minutes per side, turning only once.

Remove from heat and let set for at least 5 minutes. Cut into even pieces and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Serve with your favorite sides and voilà!
