Korean Style Short Ribs



1 cup soy sauce

1/2 cup mirin (sweet Japanese rice wine)

1/2 cup (packed) dark brown sugar

1/4 cup unseasoned rice vinegar

3 tablespoons gochujang (Korean hot-pepper paste)

1/4 cup sesame oil

1/4 cup minced garlic (about 15 cloves)

1 (2-inch) piece peeled fresh ginger, smashed

1/4 cup sesame seeds, toasted and cooled completely

2 large green onions, chopped

5 pounds Korean-style short ribs (cut 1/3 to 1/2 inch thick across bones)



Combine all ingredients, except short ribs, in medium bowl; whisk to blend well. Pour into heavy jumbo re-sealable plastic bag. Add ribs; seal bag. Turn bag over several times to coat ribs evenly. Refrigerate overnight, turning bag occasionally.

Prepare barbecue (medium-high heat). Drain ribs; discard marinade. Working in batches, grill ribs until browned and cooked to medium-rare, about 3 minutes per side.

Chicken Lo Mein

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – cut into thin strips
  • 5 teaspoons white sugar, divided
  • 3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce, divided
  • 1 1/4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 (12 ounce) package uncooked linguine pasta
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger root
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 pound fresh shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and sliced
  • ½  head Broccoli, small florets
  • ½ lb Pea Pods, de-stringed
  • ¼ lb bean sprouts
  • ¼ lb carrots cut into small moons
  • 6 green onions, sliced diagonally into 1/2 inch pieces

In a medium, non-reactive bowl, combine the chicken with 2 1/2 teaspoons of white sugar, 1 1/2 tablespoons vinegar and 1/4 cup soy sauce. Mix this together and coat the chicken well. Cover and let marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

In another medium bowl, combine the chicken broth, water, sesame oil and ground black pepper with the remaining sugar, vinegar and soy sauce. In a separate small bowl, dissolve the cornstarch with some of this mixture and slowly add to the bulk of the mixture, stirring well. Set aside.

Cook the linguine according to package directions, drain and set aside. Heat 1 tablespoon of the vegetable oil in a wok or large saucepan over high heat until it starts to smoke. Add the chicken and stir-fry for 4 to 5 minutes, or until browned. Transfer this and all juices to a warm plate.

Heat the remaining vegetable oil in the wok or pan over high heat. Add the ginger, garlic, mushrooms, pea pods, broccoli, and carrots, and stir-fry for 30 seconds. Add the reserved sauce mixture and then the chicken. Simmer until the sauce begins to thicken, about 2 minutes. Toss in the Green Onions and Bean Sprouts, stir fry for 1 minute. Add the reserved noodles and toss gently, coating everything well with the sauce.
