These spicy Korean ribs are a family favorite recipe, picked it from the local paper. Best if left in the fridge overnight, the flavors are a lot stronger. The more sauce, the better! Serve with Asian sesame coleslaw.

  • Puree onion in a blender or food processor. Add kochujang, vinegar, garlic, sesame oil, soy sauce, and minced ginger; puree into a sauce. Rub 1/3 generously over ribs, reserving the rest of the sauce. Cover ribs with plastic wrap and refrigerate 5 hours to overnight.

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

  • Scatter sliced ginger root over the bottom of a roasting pan. Place ribs meat-side down on top of ginger slices and pour lager over ribs. Cover with a lid or aluminum foil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until meat is loosened from the ribs but not yet falling off the bone, 2 to 2 1/2 hours. Let cool, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) and lightly oil the grate. Place ribs on the grill and cook until browned, about 6 minutes per side. Coat with 1/2 the reserved sauce during the last 2 minutes of cooking each side. Garnish with white and black sesame seeds.

Cook's Note:

Instead of grilling, you can finish these ribs in the broiler at 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

Unfortunately I used country style pork instead of ribs. I also did not use the beer. My bad. The sauce was excellent but the meat was very dry. Better not to substitute. Try it with BBQ cabbage wedges drizzled with garlic oil if you don't care for rice. Read More

Super tender a hit with the family. I thought it would be too spicy but it was not... just flavorful. We did the broiler option instead of the grill.. 3 minutes on each side and it was great! Read More

Amazing! This is my first allrecipes recipe. The ribs turned out delicious and didn't have that "porky" flavor likely due to braising them in beer. We purchased the hot gochujang which made them spicy. I made one rack and only needed 2 hrs in the oven. I finished the ribs under the broiler for a couple of minutes per side watching closely the whole time. I'm uploading a photo. Read More
