Korean Beef BBQ (Kalbi/Galbi)

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by ButterflyVioletta

This is the best marinade for the Korean beef ribs. The meat is cut in a style called flanken, across the ribs to make the marinade go deeply into the grain of the meat. This recipe was tweaked by a Korean market and my observations from my ex Korean mother-in-law. This recipe works for 10lbs of meat

Very good marinade. I used an apple instead of a pear. I think the Sprite makes a noticeable difference to other recipes I've tried. It's a keeper.
