Kalbi (Korean BBQ Short Ribs)

Rating: 4.78 stars
This is the staple of Korean fine dining, but too expensive in the restaurants. It is also simple to make at home, and will leave your guests asking for more. Total time includes marinating time.

Bloody Mary Short Ribs

Beef short ribs are slowly braised with Bloody Mary mix and red wine in this savory dish. I would normally use some garlic in this, but this recipe was developed for a good friend who is allergic to garlic. I serve this with homemade spaetzle.

This is a easy way to make Korean BBQ. You can also substitute chicken breast or sliced rib-eye for the short ribs. If you use chicken or rib-eye, you must add thinly sliced green onion tops. This can also be broiled in the oven for the same amount of time.

The basics of this recipe came from my mom, and it was passed down to her from her mother and Oma. I changed it a little, and you can too. You can braise in basically any liquid you want. The short ribs come out so delicious and tender, and there is not an overwhelming sauce to overpower them.

Easy Steak Sandwich

Rating: 4.6 stars

I tried for years to make a cheese steak as good as the takeout sub shops of southeastern Massachusetts. I think this is about as close as you can come at home. Freezing the steak the day before makes it easy to cut into very thin slices.
