This is a very tasty marinade that my aunt brought to the family from Hawaii. It has a teriyaki flavor. We marinate the meat and then grill it on a gas grill.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk water, sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic, and ginger together in a large glass or ceramic bowl. Add beef short ribs and toss to evenly coat. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator, 8 hours to overnight.

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

  • Cook short ribs on the grill until evenly browned, 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:

Use country-style pork ribs in place of the beef short ribs, if desired.

I cooked my ribs in the smoker instead of the grill so my review is based strictly on the marinade and not the cooking method. These were awesome! The flavor is just awesome! The only thing I would have liked to taste more of is the sesame oil. It is there but I would have just liked more of it. I'm a huge fan of that taste though so I think as written would be best for most people. I did use beef ribs but am now anxious to try this recipe with pork ribs. Thanks for sharing! Read More

Used the recipe for beef ribs - the Flintstone specials. Cooked on the Bbq and reduced the leftover marinade on the stovetop. Fantastic. Best ever! Read More
