Grilled Korean-Style
 Short Ribs

These easy, Korean-style grilled short ribs are marinated in garlic, soy, sugar, and more for a tender and flavorful result.

By Linda Burum and Linda Merinoff,  Food & Wine

Twenty years ago, way before Korean food was mega-trendy, Los Angeles food writers Linda Burum and Linda Merinoff were singing the praises of kalbi, the flanken-cut beef short ribs typical of Korean barbecue. The short ribs are marinated overnight in a simple mix of sake, soy, sugar, garlic, and sesame oil. Cooked quickly on a hot grill, the juicy meat is tender with a satisfying chew. They make a stunning main course served alongside kimchi, lettuce leaves, and steamed rice. For the best results, ask your butcher to slice three or four ribs across the bone into 1/2-inch-thick pieces, and plan to marinate the meat overnight. The marinade is also delicious with chicken or pork.

Serves : 10


  • 5 pound flanken-style (about 1/2-inch-thick) beef short ribs
  • 1/3 cup sake
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 4 scallions (white parts and 2 inches of green parts only), finely chopped (about 1/3 cup)
  • 7 large garlic cloves, finely chopped (about 1/4 cup)
  • 3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 1/3 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

How to Make It

Step 1

Place ribs in a large glass baking dish or enameled roasting pan; stir together sake and granulated sugar, and rub on both sides of ribs. Cover and let stand 15 minutes.

Step 2

Pour soy mixture over ribs, and turn to coat evenly. Cover and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight. Return ribs to room temperature before cooking. Discard marinade.

Step 3

Open bottom and top vents of a charcoal grill completely. Light a charcoal chimney starter filled with briquettes. When briquettes are covered with gray ash, pour onto bottom grate of grill, and then push to one side of grill. Working in batches, place ribs on oiled grates directly over coals, and grill, uncovered, until meat is seared, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer ribs to side of grill without coals, and grill, uncovered, until tender, about 5 minutes per side. Remove from grill, and repeat procedure with remaining ribs. (Alternatively, preheat broiler with oven rack 3 inches from heat; broil ribs until browned and ribs reach desired degree of doneness, 2 to 3 minutes per side for medium-well.)
