    Not really a traditional meal for most but this is what we had the last two years now.  I used to cut these "flanken" style ribs for years when I was working but not too many butchers around here know how to cut them and some don't even know what I'm talking about.  But I think there are a few around than know.  These were cut from the beef plate [where the short ribs are cut from] across the bones about !/4 inch thick or so.  I bought 10 pounds of them and my daughter wanted to marinate them and my son-in law did the honors grilling them.  All I had to do was shoot the breeze about sausage, hunting and fishing and later eat the goodness.  Beef ribs are my favorite ribs but this stile top them all.  Kalbi is Korean for their thin cut short ribs.  Can't believe I forgot to make the kimchi but all was good.  Here are some pics from yesterday.  Reinhard

    Here is the 10 pounds cut.  Got a buck off for larger packs and paid 4.99 lb.

    Here is a close up shot of the ribs which show the little rib bones.  Got me some meaty one's.

    Some shots from the grill and a small pile ready to serve.  Had about 5 beers so far and the fishing stories flowed well.  These were marinated overnight and only took less than 5 minutes to get er done per time on the grill.

    And the money shot of the plate.  I always put some sesame oil, soy sauce, and some hot pepper on my rice.   Reinhard

    Ya,  beer is my companion when I'm out with my smoker, grill, or making sausage.  Thanks everyone, it's a labor of love.  Here is the recipe for the Kalbi's marinade:

    This would be for about 3 pounds of ribs.  Mix everything up and marinate overnight.

    1/2 cup soy sauce

    1/2 cup pineapple juice

    1/4 cup honey

    1/3 cup brown sugar

    1 tsp black pepper

    1 med. onion minced

    1 T fresh ginger minced

    2 T sesame oil

    2 T sesame seeds             

    I've used this for pork, chicken, and salmon also.  Reinhard

    I've never had kalbi for Easter but it's a must on a camping trip! We also eat it at work when the butchers give us the scraps from trimming...

    I would also recommend adding some ko chu jang for a little spice!

    What did I eat for Easter?

    Ok. I can accept this is short rib meat that I love.

    I can accept that the recipe looks great.

    I can accept that it is a great meal.

    However, posting qview that good when we can't taste it is just cruel, Reinhard!
