Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Stir the sugar into the soy sauce in a bowl until the sugar dissolves completely. Whisk the sesame oil, garlic, green onions, and sesame seeds into the soy sauce. Place the short ribs in a large, sealable bag and pour the marinade over the meat. Marinate in refrigerator for 8 hours or overnight.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil the grate. Remove the ribs from the bag; discard the marinade.

  • Cook the short ribs on the preheated grill until they are very firm, hot, and grey in the center, about 15 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

I've used this recipe a handful of times. Each time I made it, everyone raved about the ribs, even scooping up the last drop of juice and and pouring it over their rice. Since I do not have a grill, I cooked the ribs in the oven. I used aluminum foil to seal the ribs like a tent and gave it more of a steam effect so that they came out very tender; the meat was falling off of the bones. I cooked it in 400 degrees for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Read More

This did not work for us at all. The flavor was very good (hence the 3 stars) on the tiny portion that was edible but the ribs didn't grill right at all. I think it would have been much better to try this marinade with slow cooking the ribs instead of grilling them. They were almost impossible to eat and mostly went to waste it was very disappointing.

I used the marinade for some Korean style spare ribs and then put on the BBQ. My guests really liked the flavor and took the recipe with them. There is nothing I would change in this recipe. BUT if you were so inclined you could add hot spices to this to kick it up a notch or two! I'm not into heat but some of you I'm sure are! Aloha! Read More

I can see why your friends all request it - repeatedly. Since I found this recipe about 3 months ago I have made these ribs 5 times. This is such the perfect recipe. Every sense - and those of the neighbors - are heightened when this is cooking. Fantastic!!! Read More

Great flavor! After marinating overnight, I cooked them with the marinade in a crock pot on low for 8 hours. I wasn't convinced that straight to grill would be good, all short ribs recipes I had required slow cooking. The crockpot made the beef so tender. I intended to grill after cooking but didn't need to. Read More

I give this only 4 stars because I did not make the recipe as directed. I used boneless short ribs. I ran out of soy so I had to use some teriyaki and also used a gourmet bloody mary mix when I ran out of teriyaki. I didn't have any sesame seeds so I omitted them as well. Instead of grilling I broiled the ribs for 7 minutes per side and then sliced them into medallions. They were so tender and flavorful and were a huge success at my party. This marinade recipe is definitely a keeper. Read More
