photo by Isuru Perera
- Ready In:
- 5 lbs thin cut tender short rib of beef, cross cut, about 1/2 inch thick (can substitute chuck steak)
- 2 cups soy sauce (I use 1/2 aloha brand and 1/2 yamasa brand.)
- 2 cups white sugar
- 4 garlic cloves (pressed or chopped fine)
- 1 inch ginger, grated
- 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
- sliced green onion (optional)
- sesame seeds, toasted until they pop and turn light brown (optional)
- 1 little red pepper paste (optional) or 1 red chile (optional)
- Place ribs in a glass dish or a Tupperware marinator.
- Mix all ingredients except for the optional ones in a pan and warm until the sugar melts, then cool.
- Pour marinade over ribs, add optional ingredients if you like, and place in the refrigerator 4 hours or overnight, mixing up occasionally to make sure all ribs are covered with sauce.
- Grill or broil until sizzling, being careful not to burn because of the sugar.

This was a nice tasty change of pace for our household. Instead of marinading and broiling, I heated up the matinade and threw it in the crockpot with the meat on low for the better half of the day. It was very good, and I served it with a pot of rice and steamed veggies. The sauce was great over the rice, just something a little different. I was quite impressed. Give this a try, you won't be disappointed.
