Time to Prepare: 10 minutes

Time to cook: 8 hours and 10 minutes


  • 1 pound boneless Angus beef short ribs
  • 1 cup soy sauce (dark)
  • sesame oil, 2 tbsp
  • brown sugar, 1/3 cup
  • honey, 3 tbsp
  • 1/3 cup rice wine or sherry (dry)
  • 1 finely sliced white onion
  • 1 pear, Asian, roughly sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 tsp minced ginger
  • 2 tbsp pepper paste (gochujang)
  • 1 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
  • oil with a neutral pH


  • Trim any extra silver skin and connective tissue off the exterior of the short ribs, but be cautious not to remove too much fat. Cut short ribs into 14-inch slices against the grain using a sharp slicing knife with a long blade. Note: To make slicing the short ribs even simpler, place them in the freezer for approximately 30 minutes before serving.

  • To make the marinade, put soy sauce, sesame oil, brown sugar, honey, rice wine, onion, Asian pear, garlic, ginger, gochujang, and pepper in a blender and puree until smooth. 1 cup marinade should be set away in a closed container.

  • Then, in a water bath, warm an immersion circulator to 138°F. Place the ribs in vacuum bags and distribute the marinade equally between them, rotating the ribs to coat them. Bags that can be vacuumed or sealed. Cook for 6 to 8 hours with the bags in the water bath. Using paper towels, wipe dry the short ribs from the bags (discard remaining marinade).

  • Preheat a lightly oiled gas or charcoal grill, or an indoor grill pan, to high when ready to cook. Heat the leftover marinade in a small saucepan over medium-high heat until it has reduced to a syrupy glaze, then set it aside.

  • Grill ribs until well charred, approximately 1-2 minutes each side, brushing once with reserved glaze. Short ribs should be placed on a chopping board to rest for a few minutes. Serve immediately with rice and kimchi, or steamed veggies of your choice.
