Bulgogi Korean BBQ Short Ribs

For these I use the thin cut, bone in short ribs. The marinade should be a minimum of 4 hours, but usually I do overnight.

  • 1 lb beef short ribs Thin cut 1/2 inch, bone in
  • 4 green onions + 1 green top only for garnish
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup apple sauce
  • 2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 3 tbsp fresh crushed ginger
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 tbsp toasted sesame seeds See Note 1
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil


  • In a blender add all the marinade ingredients and purée until smooth.
  • In a ZipLoc or bowl add short ribs and marinate covered for 4 hours, but overnight preferable for maximum flavor.
  • Heat gas or charcoal grill to 350°F. Drain excess marinade off short ribs. Grill turning once, about 4 minutes per side. The edges with caramelize and get crispy.
  • Allow the meat to rest for 5 minutes then I cut the meat across the grain thin, but feel free to eat off the bone. Serve with green onions on top and steamed rice.


  1. Toast sesame seeds in a dry skillet over medium heat for 3-5 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
