Korean Beef or Pork Ribs
 

Prep Time : 20 Minutes + 4-6 hours Marinating.

Cooking Time : 15 Minutes
Serves 6

2 kg ( 4.40 lbs) short ribs or pork ribs
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 water
1 onion, grated
3 cloves of garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons oriental sesame oil ( see note)
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds, crushed
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper

Method

When purchasing the meat ask the butcher to cut ribs into 2-1/2 inches (5-cm) squares. using a sharp knife, cut through the flesh of each piece to alloow the marinade to penetrate. Place the ribs in a pan and cover with water, bring to boil, cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Drain well. This runs off some fat. Combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl and add the ribs, mix well, cover and marinate refrigerated for 4-6 hours or over night. Turn the ribs occasionally while marinating, so the flavours are evenly distributed. Cook the ribs over a hot oiled grill, allowing each side to brown and become crisp. Serve warm.

Note:
Most supermarkets have oriental sesame oil (Which is made from dark roasted sesame seeds) on their Asian shelves. Or look for it at your local Asian food outlet. Light sesame oil from the health food store will not do.

You want a low fire; if you have a large grill, keep coals on one side and use other side for cooking. If you have a small grill build a small fire and add a few briquettes during grilling; this will let you have low heat but a long fire. When coals are ready, grill ribs for at least 1/2 hour with top on grill.  If your fire is at a steady, low heat, keep ribs on up to an hour. Keep your vents closed. You will get more flavour if smoke is trapped in grill. If vents are closed entirely, the fire won't get any air and will go out. If vents are open-wide, the fire may be too hot. Control your vents to allow for a slow and low fire! Once ribs are browned, remove top and allow fire to get a little hotter. Brush with 1/2 of barbecue sauce and allow to cook slightly. Remove and serve with the remaining sauce.
