Korean Galbi (Short Ribs)

Galbi, or Korean grilled short ribs, are a very popular dish at Korean BBQ restaurants. What makes these unique is the cut of beef: flanken-style short ribs, which are cut across the bones instead of between. Marinated in soy, gochujang, sesame, pear, and aromatics, the result is richly flavored, highly seasoned meat. These are traditionally served sliced off the bone and rolled into lettuce leaves, with rice, garlic, and gochujang on the side. Here, we reserve some of the marinade for serving on the side. This Korean short rib recipe is sometimes called Kalbi.

Whisk together soy sauce, gochujang, sesame oil, and honey for the marinade.

Stir in onions, pears, garlic, ginger, and pepper; reserve 1/2 cup for dipping sauce.

Marinate ribs in remaining marinade, refrigerated, at least 2 hours, or up to overnight.

Preheat grill pan over medium-high. Arrange ribs in a single layer on the griddle and grill until slightly charred and caramelized, 3–4 minutes per side. Serve ribs with reserved sauce.
