    About this recipe: This is my version of the traditional Korean dish, Kalbi. It's a quick and simple recipe that involves a really easy marinade. It's frequently requested and extremely tasty!

    Ingredients
    Serves: 6 

    • 150g caster sugar
    • 175ml soy sauce
    • 4 tablespoons sesame oil
    • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    • 3 spring onions, chopped
    • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
    • 2.25kg beef short ribs

    Method
    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, spring 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 barbecue 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 barbecue until they are very firm, hot and grey in the centre, about 15 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the centre should read 70 degrees C.

    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.  -  06 Jun 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    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.  -  27 Nov 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
