Grocery List

Fresh Produce

  • 1 Asian pears, each about the size of a baseball
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 3 scallions

Meat / Poultry / Seafood

  • 12 flanken-style beef ribs, about 4 lb total and ½" thick

Oil and Spices

  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds


  • 0.25 cup rice vinegar
  • 0.75 cup soy sauce


  • 0.333 cup granulated sugar



  • 1 Asian pear (baseball size), peeled, cored, and roughly chopped
  • 3 scallions, trimmed and roughly chopped
  • 6 large garlic cloves
  • 2 cups water
  • ¾ cup soy sauce
  • ⅓ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup rice vinegar

  • 12 flanken-style beef ribs, about 4 pounds total and ½ inch thick
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds


  1. In the bowl of a food processor, finely chop the pear, scallions, and garlic. Add the remaining marinade ingredients. Process until well combined.

  2. Put the ribs in a large bowl and pour in the marinade. Mix well to coat the ribs evenly. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours. Remove the ribs from the refrigerator and let stand at room temperature for 15 to 30 minutes before grilling.

  3. Prepare the grill for direct cooking over high heat (450° to 550°F).

  4. Brush the cooking grates clean. One at time, lift the ribs and let the liquid and solid bits fall back into the bowl. Discard the marinade. Grill the ribs over direct high heat, with the lid open, until they are nicely charred on both sides and cooked to a medium or medium-rare doneness, 3 to 5 minutes, turning occasionally. Remove from the grill and sprinkle with the sesame seeds.

I have made this before so I thought I would give Weber's recipe a shot. I thought the marinade was lacking so I added sesame oil Also, I rubbed brown sugar (and kosher salt and fresh ground pepper) on the short ribs prior to marinating.
