Simple Kalbi Short Ribs
2 cups soy sauce (shoyu)
1 ¼ cups water
¾ cup rice vinegar
1 tbsp teaspoon sesame oil
1 ½ tbsp fish sauce
3 cups packed dark brown sugar
1 tsp ground ginger
6 cloves crushed
½ tsp black pepper
8- 6 pounds bone-in beef short ribs, ½ - inch -thick flanken style (Korean or cross-out)
Toasted white sesame seeds for garnish
1 tsp green onions, green parts chopped for garnish.
In a bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, water, rice vinegar, sesame oil, fish sauce, brown sugar, ginger until well combined. Separate the short ribs into two three-gallon -size Ziploc bags. Pour marinade into two bags equality, marinade shorts ribs for 6- 24 hours. Turn the bags at least three times during the marinating period.
You can either grill the short ribs 4-5 minutes on each side on medium heat for a medium-rare cook. For more well-done ribs grill for 7-8 on medium to low heat. Or you can broil in the oven for 5 minutes on each side. Finish with sesame and green onion garnish and serve.
