This is one of Mark's creations that he has been cooking for a very long time, and it was one of the first things he cooked for me when we started dating. That day I fell in love with more than just the tacos. Wink wink. Awwww sappy love story! Annnnd, back to tacos...
Why use Korean Short Ribs in this recipe?
If you've ever had Korean Short Ribs dishes, then we don't have to explain further. But if you haven't, you absolutely must. Unlike American- or European-style short ribs, Korean short ribs are cut across the rib bones typically in very thin strips. Additionally, short ribs are marbled with a decent amount of fat and have the most amazing flavor. With our marinade, the short ribs develop a bit of caramelization when you cook them and this gives the beef a nice delicious crust.
Do you need any special equipment to make these?
Nope! We make the Korean Short Ribs in a wok to get that good crust on the meat, but this can be achieved in a normal skillet as well.
