Kalbi (Korean Marinated Short Ribs)
On my half-day off, I decided to relax by making my favorite Korean meat dish, kalbi (marinated short ribs). Serve with white rice and kimchi. If serving small children (and wanting to prevent a mess), it's best to cut the meat off the bone and slice into bite-sized pieces. The dark marinade can stain clothes, so be careful.
You can use an apple in place of the Asian pear.
If using a stove top, add the short ribs to a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook about 5 minutes on each side or until slightly charred.
