The marinade on this dish is incredible. If you are skeptical, go to the recipe link and look at the comments.
I did use the flanken beef shortribs, but also I used thinly sliced flap steak. My wife and I decided we liked the flap steak a bit better.
I took the used marinade, put it in a saucepan and cooked julienned snow peas in it. They were great too.
If you dieters (and I'm one) are looking for low carb, this is it, Baby !
