½ peeled yellow onion 5 large garlic cloves 1 teaspoon fresh ginger trimmed 1 cup water 1 cup soy sauce ½ cup packed light brown sugar 3 tablespoons mirin ¼ cup honey 3 tablespoons sesame oil 2 teaspoons sesame seeds 1 peeled and seeded Asian pear 1 peeled and seeded Fuji apple ½ peeled kiwi ¼ cup sliced green onions ½ teaspoon ground pepper 3 pounds kalbi cut short ribs
Add all of the ingredients except for the ribs and green onions to a blender and blend on high speed until smooth. Transfer the mixture to a plastic zip bag and completely submerge the ribs in the marinade. Marinate in the refrigerator for 12 hours or overnight. Add the ribs right from the marinade to a hot grill in between 450° and 550° and cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side or until dark grill marks have formed. Remove from the grill, garnish with sesame seeds and sliced green onions and serve right away.
• You can also add in 1 teaspoon of salt and 2 tablespoons of regular sugar to make the marinade more intense in flavor.
• The marinade will last up to 4 days if you choose not to marinate the short ribs right away.
• I like to move the marinated ribs around in the bag every 4-6 hours to make sure they are getting exposed to the marinade.
• Don’t marinate the ribs for more than 24 hours. Calories: 592 kcal | Carbohydrates: 33 g | Protein: 49 g | Fat: 29 g | Saturated Fat: 11 g | Cholesterol: 147 mg | Sodium: 993 mg | Potassium: 999 mg | Fiber: 1 g | Sugar: 29 g | Vitamin A: 62 IU | Vitamin C: 8 mg | Calcium: 39 mg | Iron: 6 mg
