Korean Food: Grilled Beef Ribs

aeriskitchen's picture
In Korea, we love to grill marinated meat (beef, pork, or chicken). There are 2 main flavors for marinated meat. One is spicy, which uses mainly red pepper paste. The other one is sweet & salty which is similar to a BBQ flavor. That type uses mainly soy sauce, pear, honey, sugar, apple, kiwi, and etc.
Main ingredients:
  Beef ribs 2 1⁄2 Pound (10 pieces)
  Asian pear 10 Ounce, cut into pieces (1 pear processed)
  Onion 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs), cut into pieces (Processed)
Sauce ingredients:
  Soy sauce 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Cooking wine 2 Tablespoon
  Minced garlic 1 1⁄2 Tablespoon
  Minced ginger 1 Teaspoon
  Sugar 1 1⁄2 Tablespoon
  Honey 1 1⁄2 Tablespoon
  Sesame oil 1 Tablespoon
  Black pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Finely chopped green onions 3 Tablespoon

1. Soak the beef ribs in water for about 2 or 3 hours to clean it thoroughly. Keep changing the water every hour rinsing the blood off the beef ribs. Rinse and drain the water.
2. Grind the cut pear and onion in a mixer.
3. Pour the pear and onion mixture on the cleaned and rinsed beef ribs and set it aside for an hour. This will help the meat to become sweet and tender.
4. In a bowl combine all the ingredients for the sauce. Mix until sugar and honey dissolves.
5. After the beef has been marinated for an hour, pour prepared sauce over it and mix well. Cover it with a plastic wrap and refrigerate it for a day. Flip over the ribs once or twice while it’s kept in the refrigerator.

6. In a heated pan or grill place some of the marinated beef ribs with some extra sauce over it. Cook until the ribs are well done.

7. Serve warm with other Korean side dishes

If you've ever been to a Korean restaurant, you know it is great fun sitting around the table with friends grilling the meat on the grill plate embedded in the center of the table, garnishing it with all the exotic tasty condiments. The good news is that it is easy to make Kalbi at home. Watch this video to learn t
