Growing up in a Korean family, Sue had short ribs often (a Korean staple), but usually at special occasions like graduations and holidays. Even now, Sue will often prepare short ribs for family get-togethers and other celebrations; although these meals include vegetables and other side dishes, it’s the short ribs that are the star of the show--the feature.
Preparing short ribs takes time, especially when taking the extra step to marinate the short ribs overnight in a soy sauce blend--one of Sue’s favorites. Her recipe comes just in time with the warming weather, as she also recommends cooking the short ribs on the grill for 15-20 minutes to get that perfect charred taste. We hope you’ll try this classic feature and taste why it continues to be a Korean cultural staple today. Sue’s recipe can be found below:
Recipe for Short Ribs

-5 to 7 cloves of minced garlic
-1 medium diced onion
-1/2 sliced, thin onion (green and white)

-Put the meat in container and pour bowl of ingredients over the meat; making sure all the juices are mixed.
-Refrigerate in sealed container for at least four hours.
