Get ready for a K-pop of flavor with this Korean BBQ Short Ribs (Galbi) recipe – it's so simple, even your kimchi-loving cat could whip it up! And guess what? If you're feeling rebellious, you can swap those short ribs for chicken breast or a disco of sliced rib-eye. Just don't forget to invite thinly sliced green onion tops to the party!

Prep Time: A breezy 15 mins

Cook Time: A sizzling 10 mins

Additional Time: A patient 7 hrs

Total Time: A grand 7 hrs and 25 mins

Servings: Enough to feed 5 hungry K-drama enthusiasts!



- ¾ cup soy sauce

- ¾ cup water

- 3 tablespoons white vinegar (the vinegar with moves!)

- 2 tablespoons sesame oil (for that savory dance floor)

- ½ large onion, minced (minced, not minced words!)

- ¼ cup minced garlic (because vampires aren't invited)

- ¼ cup dark brown sugar (for a touch of sweetness)

- 2 tablespoons white sugar (the sweet sidekick)

- 1 tablespoon black pepper (spicing things up!)

- 3 pounds Korean-style short ribs (beef chuck flanken, cut 1/3- to 1/2-inch-thick across bones)


Step 1 - The Marinade Mashup:

- Pour soy sauce, water, vinegar, and sesame oil into a large, non-metallic bowl.

- Whisk in onion, garlic, brown sugar, white sugar, and pepper – whisk until the sugars drop the mic and dissolve.

- Submerge those short ribs in the marinade, cover the bowl, and let it groove in the fridge for 7 to 12 hours; the longer, the better. Let the flavors party all night long!


Step 2 - Grillin' Vibes:

- Preheat an outdoor grill for a medium-high heat jam session.


Step 3 - Unleash the Ribs:

- Remove the ribs from the marinade and shake off that excess; toss the marinade like yesterday's news.


Step 4 - Grill Mastery:

- Cook those ribs on the preheated grill until the meat is no longer playing it cool, about 5 to 7 minutes per side. Get ready for the applause!
