Marinade for the Beef Short Ribs
6 strips of beef short ribs (bones removed)
1/4 cup of soy sauce
1/4 cup of mirin
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon freshly crushed garlic
1 teaspoon freshly crushed ginger
1/4 cup of finely chopped scallions
Directions for Beef Short Ribs
To a small bowl add everything but the beef. Mixed until the sugar is dissolved. Pour the marinade in a zip lock bag. Add the beef short ribs to the marinade and seal the bag. Shake to coat all the beef with the marinade.
Let this marinate for 4 hours in the refrigerator.
After four hours, heat a stove top griddle or heat up your grill outside to really hot.
Add your beef short rib and do not move it for 1 minute. Flip and let it grill on the other side for 2 more minutes. Use a b rush to brush on some of the marinade.
If you are using thin cuts no more than 3 minutes is required. I grilled mine to medium.
Once you remove it from the grill Let it rest for a few minutes before slicing it into small cubes.
