VI's Korean (Kalbi) recipe

I've used this several times, but have used skirt steak instead of Flanken ribs. Will be doing it tomorrow night. They are marinating now. Pics tomorrow, always delicious!! Thanks VI for the recipe.
5 pounds Skirt steak
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup mirin (rice wine)
1 small onion, peeled and finely grated
1 small Asian pear, peeled and finely grated
4 tablespoons minced garlic
2 tablespoons dark sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 green onions, thinly sliced (optional)
Sprinkle brown sugar over beef and mix well to evenly coat. Let sit at room temperature for 10 minutes while preparing marinade. In a bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients. Transfer beef into a large sealable freezer bag (you may need 2). Add marinade, press out excess air from bags, and seal. Turn bag over several times to ensure beef is evenly coated. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours but preferably overnight.

    Yes it was John, this is the first time I've done it since then. So many things to cook and so little time to try them all.  :))
    Mickey Ah-so. He very very tricky.

  • Billyray,

    Thank you for the credit for your Kalbi dinner.  I used flanken ribs like was called for in the recipe, and they were quite tender, as I recall.  I have never been able to get skirt steak that tender, but it is very tasty.

    @ Village Idiot You're about the skirt steak not being that tender, even when you cut across the grain. But I don't mind the little extra chew, because the flavor with your recipe is so good.

    Your receipt is very similar to one my wife used for Korean ribs when we lived in Hawaii many, many years ago. Her recipe called for short ribs/flanken ribs….but she preferred a beef rib that had a thinner bone than short ribs, kinda like the size of pork rib bones, which she separated into individual ribs, marinated them and grilled. We tried for years to find the cut of beef she used in Hawaii…all to no avail. My best guess is that she used rib tips from a rib roast. Have you…or any on the site…ever heard/used a beef rib as I described??  Thanks….

    Haven't tried it, but sounds like they might have been beef back ribs. I'll have to give it a try and see how they turn out.
