  1. Mix pear slices, sherry wine, soy sauce, rice vinegar, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, hoisin sauce, hot chili paste, and sesame oil in a blender until smooth, about 4 minutes.
  2. Arrange short ribs in a 9x13-inch baking dish and coat completely with marinade. Cover baking dish with plastic wrap and transfer to the refrigerator to marinate for 8 to 12 hours.
  3. Remove short ribs to a plate and blot dry with paper towel to remove excess marinade.
  4. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  5. Grill short ribs until firm, hot, and slightly pink in the center, about 4 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 140 degrees F (60 degrees C).

Enjoyed this dish! Pretty simple and straight forward.

It's soooooooooooo good! 10 out of 10 I would make again! Too much time but worth it!

These turned out dynamite! Yet another excellent recipe from Chef John. If you don't regularly watch his videos, you should! I made these per the recipe, but I couldn't get an Asian Pear. Af...

Very good! The picture showing the rack of ribs shows the wrong kind of ribs for this recipe, though. Those ribs would take way longer than 4 mins per side. You should be getting flanken style r...

I had twice braised kalbi-style Asian short ribs at Alan Wong’s in Honolulu; they were boneless and delicious! That being said, I like to control the degree of doneness and texture with sous...
