Korean style BBQ short ribs a.k.a Kalbi

Let’s fire up the grill, baby! It’s summer! It’s hot! It’s time to grab a cold one and grill some Kalbi 🍺 Here’s my easy and delicious recipe for addicting Korean style BBQ short ribs 🔥 These go extremely well with white rice or grilled corn 💘


2-3 lbs beef short ribs (thinly sliced Korean style) ⁠

1 cup soy sauce⁠

1 cup sugar⁠

1 cup water ⁠

2 tbsp sesame oil ⁠

3-4 garlic cloves, minced ⁠

½ onion, sliced⁠

2 tbsp sesame seeds⁠

1-2 scallions, sliced ⁠

1 tbsp red pepper flakes (optional)⁠


1️⃣ In a large bowl or ziplock bag, combine all of the ingredients to make the marinade. Mix well to dissolve sugar into the mixture. ⁠

2️⃣ Add short ribs into the marinade and leave in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, but ideally overnight. ⁠

3️⃣ Grill the short ribs 5-7 minutes on each side. If you get a few burnt ends that’s fine, I find those to be delicious. Brush any leftover sauce on top and let rest for a few minutes. You can cut into thirds or 1 inch squares. ENJOY! ⁠
