July 4th was just the beginning of grilling season...continue the summer long ritual with some Korean BBQ a lá FarmEats. Last Friday, Drew of FarmEats picked up his grass-fed cow from his butcher and had him cut the short ribs flanken style-thin. Perfect for quick searing on the grill- Korean style! According to Drew, you marinate the ribs at minimum for 4 hours in Korean GalBi(Kalbi) or Bulgogi marinades. Even better...marinate them overnight. Then fire up the grill and when it's nice and hot put the short ribs on to cook for about 2 to 3 minutes per side-just enough time for the heat and fire to sear the beef and crisp up the fat, while leaving the beef rare in the middle. Need some help with the marinade? Try this easy one from Kimchimari
