After trying many recipes for homemade-style Korean BBQ, I finally found a great recipe from a friend who learned it from his mom. It's sweet, salty, spicy, and very tender (Thanks to the Coke®). I use this same recipe to make Bulgogi and Dae Ji Bool Gogi (Spicy Pork) and simply change the onions to sliced bulbs for the bulgogi.

  • Place short ribs in a resealable plastic bag and pour in marinade. Squeeze out excess air and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate. Remove short ribs from marinade, discarding marinade.

  • Cook short ribs until browned and cooked to desired doneness, 3 to 4 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

Cook's Note:

Add red chili paste, or sambal, to make it a bit spicy.

I used a pretty thick boneless short rib instead of korean style cut. Marinated for 4-5 hours. The marinade gives a good flavor and the ribs were tender indeed. My only complaint was that I wish the ribs had more of the marinade flavor! Maybe using the thinner cut will prove to be more flavorful. I will definitely be teying this again when I find some. Great share! Read More
