Kalbi marinade:


Instructions Checklist
  • Toast sesame seeds in a small skillet over medium heat until lightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes.

  • Combine sesame seeds, soy sauce, sugar, green onions, sesame oil, garlic, and red pepper flakes in a saucepan. Simmer over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until flavors combine, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let marinade cool completely, about 15 minutes.

  • Place short ribs in large resealable plastic bags and cover with cooled marinade. Seal and let marinate in the refrigerator, at least 1 hour or overnight for maximum flavor.

  • Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Drain short ribs, discarding marinade, and cook on the preheated grill until browned, about 5 minutes per side.

Cook's Note:

Set aside a portion of the cooled marinade in step 2 if you want a dip for your grilled ribs.

This was really good! It reminded me of Bulgogi. It was a little bit too sweet in my opinion so I'll reduce the sugar next time. I did make one change. Red pepper flakes have been giving me some issues lately but I still wanted the heat so I used Sriracha. The green onions and sesame seeds get left behind in the bag which disappointed me at first but the flavor is in the meat so it is all good. Great recipe! Read More
