Grilled Marinated Flanken Style Short Ribs

Do you like beef jerky? How about a hot, sizzling, tender and moist cut of meat with similar flavor? If that sounds good, try these Marinated Flanken Style Short Ribs!

Even a carnivore like me likes to change up from grilled steaks once in awhile, and when I saw these flanken short ribs (sometimes also called Korean short ribs) at a local Hispanic market for $5.99 a pound, I had to get some.

You will need to marinate these overnight for the best results, so plan accordingly.

***Warning: These are very addictive and I plan on fixing them every week until I get tired of them.

Cook / Prep time – 24 hours to marinate and 3o minutes to grill

Servings – 2

  • 1 pound Flanken Style or Korean short ribs
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup mirin
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp worchestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp fresh grated ginger
  • 1 clove fresh garlic, chopped
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tsp sesame seed
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp orange zest
  • Mix all ingredients except the short ribs together and blend well. Place the marinade into a gallon size ziplock or a ceramic dish and add the short ribs. Place in the refrigerator and marinade overnight.
  • After marinating overnight, discard the marinade and prepare your grill, whether it’s charcoal or gas. Place on the grill grate and cook on one side until they are browned, then flip and brown the other side until well browned. Serve immediately. You may garnish them with more fresh chopped green onions. That’s it!


    Suggested music to listen to while preparing these short ribs….

    Since we saw Jeff Lynne’s ELO last Wednesday at Bridgestone Arena and the songs are still in my head, let’s go with “Wembley or Bust” by Jeff Lynne’s ELO, a live album released in November 2017.
