Tips for my Grilled Korean BBQ Short Ribs


Short ribs are a very forgiving cut of beef. With my Grilled Korean BBQ Short Ribs, you are able to marinate it in order to keep it flavorful from the inside out. While the marinade is very important, here are two tips that will help to cook this recipe easier. One is that you pay attention to how hot your fire is. The Grilled Korean BBQ Short Ribs needs a hot fire as they are thin and will not need to cook long. Getting that fire hot will help create a crust that you will love. Lastly, allow that steak to rest. This will help the juices redistribute to the meat and leave you with a beautifully colored piece of beef!

Grilled Korean BBQ Short Ribs Ingredients

  • 4 flanken short ribs 1/2 inch thick
  • 1 bowl/bag of Beef Marinade
  • Handful of sliced green onions
  • 1 tbsp of sea salt

Beef Marinade Ingredients

  • 1 cup of soy sauce
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/2 white onion diced
  • 3 tbsp of white vinegar
  • 2 tbsp of sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp of black pepper
  • 2 tbsp of garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp of onion powder
  • 1 tbsp of red chili flakes
  • 1 tbsp of sea salt


  • In a bowl or plastic bag, mix all the ingredients for the Beef Marinade above. Make sure to stir in the brown sugar last and slowly so that it evenly dissolves. Season the flanked short ribs with a little bit of sea salt. Put beef in the marinade, mix it around for an even coating, cover it, and place in the refrigerator for 4-8 hours (you can do up to 24 hours - the longer the better).
  • About 15 minutes before cooking, pull beef out of the refrigerator and take out of marinade. Let come to room temperature.
  • Use some Cowboy Hardwood Lump Charcoal to light fire and let burn for 10-15 minutes. Once charcoal is white hot, push into one flat pile for direct grilling.
  • Grill the short ribs for about 4-5 minutes per side. Pull off and let rest for 5 minutes once done.
  • Sprinkle some sliced green onions on top, serve & enjoy!


Equipment Needed: Cowboy Charcoal, grill, tongs, knife, and a cutting board.
