Ingredients

1 cup soy sauce

1 cup sugar 

1/2 cup sesame seeds, toasted 

1/4 cup minced garlic 

1/4 cup rice vinegar 

2 tablespoons sesame oil 

2 tablespoons ground black pepper 

4 scallions, chopped, plus more for garnish 

1 medium onion, sliced 

One 12-ounce can lemon-lime soda, such as 7UP

2 kiwis, peeled 

5 pounds bone-in beef short ribs 

Cooked rice, for serving

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the soy sauce, sugar, sesame seeds, garlic, vinegar, oil, black pepper, scallions, onions and soda, and stir to combine. In a small bowl, use a fork and mash the kiwis until they become a paste. Add the kiwis to the marinade and stir to combine. Pour the marinade over the short ribs. Cover and marinate for 4 hours.
  2. Preheat a charcoal grill or grill pan over high heat.
  3. Remove the ribs from the marinade and drain off any excess. Grill the ribs until slightly charred on each side, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Serve on a platter garnished with chopped scallions. Serve with cooked rice.

Cook’s Note

The kiwis in the marinade help to break down the short ribs, tenderizing them in less time than without using them.
