Grilled Korean Short Ribs

Grilled Korean Short Ribs

Living in L.A., I've grown to love Korean-style barbecue, but it wasn't until I got my latest issue of Bon Appetit that I decided to make it at home. Using this recipe as guidance, I marinated cross-cut short ribs in soy sauce, ginger, and garlic, and then quickly grilled them. The result was so flavorful and juicy that it's sure to become a summer barbecue favorite. Leftovers would be great for fusion tacos a la Kogi, L.A.'s famous Korean BBQ food truck.
