Kalbi Short Ribs

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Rita1652

Korean Barbecue Short Ribs. Otherwise known as ‘galbi’, ‘kelbi’ and even ‘kalby’. I used only honey skipping the white sugar that is normally used. But you can add white sugar (in addition to the honey) if you are not watching the 1/4 cup sugar intake.

These Korean short ribs were really tasty! I had about 1.25 lbs of ribs, so I just halved all of the marinade ingredients, which worked well. I had to sub 100% apple juice for apple cider as that is what I had on hand. We marinated the meat for almost 12 hours. It was very tender and delicious. I can't imagine adding another 1/4 cup of sugar, so I think you were right on to just use the honey. It was plenty sweet for us (without being overly so). We served with grilled zucchini. Thanks for an easy, enjoyable meal! Made for ZWT6.
