We all enjoy a good barbecue, but instead of the typical burger and hot dogs, why not try something a little more exotic, like this recipe for beef galbi, a Korean BBQ. Classic Korean BBQ resembles American BBQ, with chicken, pork, and beef as the main ingredients. Korean BBQ is unique in that grilled foods are usually eaten in a lettuce wrap with spicy accoutrements.


  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 pounds beef short ribs, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup light soy sauce
  • 4 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 4 teaspoons crushed garlic
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 1 cup fresh fruit juice such as pineapple, orange, or pear


  1. Sprinkle brown sugar over short ribs and let sit while making the marinade. Whisk together soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic, rice wine, and pepper.
  2. Dip meat in juice and add meat to bowl with marinade. Let marinate in the refrigerator for about 2 hours.
  3. When ready to cook, heat grill or grill pan to medium heat. Place meat on grill and cook 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until cooked to desired doneness.
  4. Serve with lettuce wraps. Note: The meat will cook quickly because it is so thin, so take care to not overcook it.
