Hawaiian Korean Kal Bi Marinade

Recipe by BIG_CHIEF

Original recipe given to me by Hawaiians. Best for grilling pork or beef ribs and even chicken, just stick to 4-5 pounds. Can be halved for smaller amounts of meat or doubled for feeding a crowd. Better than the old red barbecue sauce!

made this for tonight's dinner. Husband loved it. I added some fresh ginger and some red pepper flakes.
