Ok, I am graduating this Monday!
I will finally be a real person. I am very excited.
To kick off my new free life, I am having two huge parties.
Party one is BBQ for friends.
For this event I am making my BBQ Pork ribs, and also Korean Kalbi. I looooovee Kalbi the traditional way with Flanken, ribs cut across the bone.
(This image came from savorysweetlife.com's post on kalbi, click the image for the post)
Usually it is marinated for a day or two and then grilled on a table top grill or over charcoal. I want to make something similar on the outdoor grill. I have been researching Kalbi for months (by researching, I do mean eating, but also recipe hunting) and I just cant decide what is best.
Some people call for coke or 7up in their marinade, some say to marinade for 1 day, some say 2. Some people put ginger. Some even use kiwi.
It seems that the most traditional ingredients are:
-grated korean pear
-ground sesame seeds
And of course the right cut is Flanken. I wonder if I should try something different. I have had Korean flavored BBQ beef ribs before but I don't know if I can get the recipe. They weren't the same as the flanken but they were oh so amazing.
I want to marinate the ribs, but I would also like to make a thick sauce to go on them. Can I just reduce the marinade?
Here are links to some of the Recipes I am considering
