Grilled Beef Short Ribs


5 lbs. Beef Short Ribs (cut about ½ inch thick and bone-in – boneless work well too)


  • 1 Cup Light Brown Sugar
  • 2 Teaspoons of Freshly Ground White Pepper
  • 1 Cup Soy Sauce
  • 1/2 Cup Rice Wine Vinegar
  • Six Dashes Sesame Oil
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • 6 Sliced Garlic Cloves
  • 1/2 Sliced White Onion
  • 1 Chopped Asian Pear
  • 1/4 Cup Ginger Chunks


  • Chopped Scallions
  • Toasted Sesame Seeds


  1. Rub ribs with brown sugar and white pepper. Let mixture sit for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, put the marinade together.
  2. Mix the marinade together with the ribs in a large freezer bag. Place the bag on a sheet pan and refrigerate. Marinate overnight, turning every few hours. Take the bag out of the fridge about an hour before cooking.
  3. Grill 3-4 minutes on each side on high heat, so ribs have a nice caramelized char. Both gas and charcoal grills work well for this recipe.
  4. Sprinkle chopped scallions and sesame seeds on plated ribs.

Serves 5.
If you like it a little spicy, add 8 dried Thai red chiles to the marinade.
