Korean BBQ Short Ribs (Galbi)


This is an easy way to make Korean short ribs. You can also substitute chicken breast or sliced rib-eye for the short ribs. If you use chicken or rib-eye, you must add thinly sliced green onion tops. This can also be broiled in the oven for the same amount of time.

  • ¾ cup soy sauce

  • ¾ cup water

  • 3 tablespoons white vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil

  • ½ large onion, minced

  • ¼ cup minced garlic

  • ¼ cup dark brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons white sugar

  • 1 tablespoon black pepper

  • 3 pounds Korean-style short ribs (beef chuck flanken, cut 1/3- to 1/2-inch-thick across bones)


  1. Pour soy sauce, water, vinegar, and sesame oil into a large, non-metallic bowl. Whisk in onion, garlic, brown sugar, white sugar, and pepper, whisking until sugars dissolve. Submerge ribs in the marinade. Cover the bowl and refrigerate 7 to 12 hours; the longer, the better.

  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat.

  3. Remove ribs from marinade and shake off excess; discard marinade.

  4. Cook on the preheated grill until the meat is no longer pink, 5 to 7 minutes per side.
