This week I cook. up Korean BBQ Ribs, also called Galbi or Kalbi, on the Weber Kettle. I'm joined by @Joe Yim (be sure to check out his channel), to get some advice, and the results were amazing! If you haven't made Korean BBQ on your grill, give it a try!


beef ribs (LA style ribs or flanking cut), cut against the bone

  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1.5 cups sake (or sprite or water)
  • 1.5 cups mirin
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon chili flakes
  • 3 green onions, whites only, finely chopped
  • 1 Asian pear, peeled and grated
  • 2 knobs ginger, peeled and grated
  • White rice, for serving
  • Kimchi, for serving
  • Seaweed salad, for serving
  • Green onions, sliced, for garnish
  • Sesame seeds, for garnish


  • In a blender, combine soy sauce, sesame oil, sake (or sprite or water), mirin, brown sugar, minced garlic, salt, pepper, and chili flakes. Blend until well combined.
  • Add the chopped green onion whites, grated Asian pear, and grated ginger to the blender. Blend again until all the ingredients are incorporated and the marinade is smooth.
  • Pour some of the marinade into a bowl. Place the beef ribs in the bowl and coat them well with the marinade.
  • Cover the bowl and let the ribs marinate for at least 4 hours, or up to 24 hours in the refrigerator.
  • Fire up your Weber
  • Remove the ribs from the marinade and shake off any excess.
  • Place the ribs on the grill over the hot coals. Cook the ribs for about 4-6 minutes per side, depending on their thickness
  • When done, remove them from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes.
  • Serve the Korean BBQ short ribs with white rice, kimchi, seaweed salad, and garnish with sliced green onions and sesame seeds.
