Korean BBQ Ribs – a traditional and authentic marinade for the most delicious BBQ ribs you will ever have.
It’s a long weekend.
It’s Canada day weekend.
Weather is gorgeous.
It couldn’t get any better.
Or could it?
Yes! It could get better with some delicious BBQ ribs.
A couple weeks ago, for the first time in my life I went to a Korean restaurant and had Korean food. I really liked it, it was during lunch and they had a buffet, so I got to sample a few different types of dishes. One of those dishes was Korean BBQ ribs.
I loved them. They were tender and had a bit of sweetness to them, they were amazing. I have to say I really enjoyed Korean food. I would definitely try it again.
It just so happened that a friend of mine said his mom had the best recipe for Korean BBQ ribs. Well I jumped at the idea of trying these delicious ribs myself so I begged for the recipe.
And I got it.
There’s also a funny story here, but to cut to the point, I inspired his mom, Liza to create her own blog, Salu-Salo. They are from the Philippines and she has a wonderful collection of Filipino dishes. I am looking forward to trying out many of her recipes.
The recipe she gave me though was for 5 lbs of ribs, which is a bit too much for just my husband and I so I cut it down in half. These ribs are super easy to make, you mix all the marinade ingredients together and marinate the meat over night. Trust me, you will want to marinate this over night. The Meat will tenderize and it will be full of flavor. Liza’s recipe calls for beef short ribs, but the ones I had at the restaurant work pork ribs, so I decided to make mine this time with pork, but feel free to use beef ribs.
I did cheat when I made these and I did not barbecue them, I baked them. I lined a baking sheet with parchment paper and baked them at 400 F degrees.
They turned out amazing. The flavor is out of this world. The most delicious ribs I’ve ever had. Thank you Liza.
