Korea - Kalbigui

Here's another recipe from the 2010 FIFA World Cup Menu - Week 2. Time for some ribs! Nothing screams summer more than ribs on the barbie. Today they're going to take a Korean twist. I've often seen this recipe done with beef short ribs but I have also seen it done with pork ribs. Use whatever you like. Life's easy.

Korea Kalbigui
Serves 4

  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 4 tbsp soy sauce
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp ginger, minced
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 2 lbs ribs
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds

  1. Mix the first 6 ingredients together in a pan big enough to hold all the ribs
  2. Add the ribs, turn to coat thoroughly and marinated for at least 4 hours
  3. Heat the barbecue on high.
  4. Barbecue the ribs for 10 minutes on each side or so until cooked through. Baste with remaining ribs sauce with each turn.
  5. Sprinkle on the sesame seeds and let them brown a bit on the ribs.
  6. Serve with kimchi, a green salad with sesame dressing or an asian slaw made with shredded cabbage and carrots tossed with a little mayo, soy sauce, lime juice and cilantro.

I'm really enjoying incorporating asian flavours into the barbecue these days! Yum!
