  • 800 grams beef short ribs - cut thinly
  • 1 small onion - peeled
  • ½ Asian pear - peeled
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons mirin (sweet rice wine)
  • 2 cloves garlic - peeled and chopped finely
  • ½ thumb ginger - peeled and chopped finely
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoon brown sugar
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil


  • Pound the meat slightly to tenderize. But this step can be skipped.
  • Place beef in a bowl or a container with a lid.
  • Hold a grater over the meat and grate the onion and the pear over it. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
  • Marinate for at least 4 hours or overnight for best results.
  • Preheat the grill over medium-high heat. Grill the short ribs for 2-3 minutes on each side, turning only once.
  • Serve with your favorite Korean side dishes.


The best way to grill Galbi is over hot charcoal. However, you can also enjoy it indoor with s griddle or grill pan over the stove top.
