About this recipe: This is a variation of a traditional Korean recipe for marinated beef short ribs. My friends all request it repeatedly! Very tasty!


Serves: 6 

  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup sesame oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 5 pounds beef short ribs

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Extra time:8hr marinating  ›  Ready in:8hr40min 

  1. 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.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil the grate. Remove the ribs from the bag; discard the marinade.
  3. 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).
