  • 3 pounds short ribs, cut in 1/2-inch slices across the bones (flanken-style)

1. You want to Rinse short ribs in cold water, pat dry, and place in a wide shallow bowl. Now Mix soy sauce, brown sugar, rice wine, sesame oil, black pepper, and cayenne in another bowl.

2. Add your garlic, onion, ginger, pear to the work bowl of a food processor. Grind ingredients to a smooth purée, then add to soy sauce mixture. Add sesame seeds. Thin with ¼ cup water.

Pour marinade over short ribs and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for at least 5 hours, but it is best to marinate for 24 hours. Bring to room temperature, drain and dispose of marinade.
