This is my favorite recipe for ribs. Korean-style short ribs are cut lengthwise across the rib bones, this is also known as ‘flanken’. The result is a thin strip of meat, about 8 to10 inches in length. The thin slices make for fast cooking on the grill, which makes them great to cook for company. We serve them with rice and various Korean side dishes. This recipe differs from the others posted on RecipeZaar as they are missing one crucial ingredient used by the Korean woman that taught this recipe to my husband. The ingredient is Coca Cola. Sounds strange, but it works wonderfully and helps to keep the meat tender and juicy. Prep time does not include the marinating time. The longer you marinate these ribs, the better they come out.
