Easiest marinade ever. Tastes just like the short-ribs from the teriyaki restaurant down the street. My friends rave on the flavor, neighbors are always jealous when there's a BBQ at my place!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 -10 garlic clove (individual preference)
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 -2 teaspoon sliced fresh ginger
  • 10 lbs beef short ribs (1/4 inch thick or thinner bone in of course, you can buy this at your local grocery store or Costco)


  1. Remove short ribs from package, rinse off (I like to trim most of the fat off the ribs).
  2. Place sugar, water and soy sauce in pan, mix until sugar dissolves.
  3. Add ribs, crushed garlic, oil and sliced ginger (if liquid does not cover ribs add a little more water).
  4. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or for best results overnight.
