Barbecued Beef Short Ribs [Korean Style]

I bought some boneless beef short ribs at our last run to Costco and was trying to decide whether to braise them with red wine or marinate them Korean style. I chose the latter and they were so very good. This recipe is combination of this recipe and this recipe. I also added some Hoisin sauce because everything is better with Hoisin sauce. Both recipes said to grill the ribs for 3 minutes a side but I found that it was more like 5 minutes for rare. Maybe my grill isn’t as hot as it should be, who knows.

Korean Style Beef Short ribs

1½ lbs Boneless Beef Short Ribs

3 Tbs. Dark Brown Sugar

1/2 cup Soy Sauce

1/4 cup Hoisin sauce

4 tsp Pure Toasted  Sesame Oil

3 cloves garlic, diced or pressed

1/4 cup rice wine vinegar

1 Tsp crushed red pepper

1/2 cup green onions, chopped


Sprinkle the beef ribs with the brown sugar and let sit at room temperature for 10 min.

Combine the rest of the ingredients in a bowl, whisk to blend well. Pour into Ziploc plastic bag. Add ribs; seal bag. Let the meat marinate at least two hours, turning occasionally.

Prepare barbecue to medium high heat. Drain ribs; discard marinade. Working in batches, grill ribs until browned and cooked to medium-rare, about *3 minutes per side.

These paired nicely with sautéed baby bok Choy. Enjoy!

* 3 minutes may not be long enough.
