Simple Grilled Beef Ribs with Ginger and Soy

Last week I bought some short ribs and began perusing my cookbooks for ideas.  I came across a recipe in the “Williams & Sonoma – Meats and Poultry” cookbook that looked like it might work.  Although there were some things I changed up a bit just to suit my own tastes.   First their recipe called for white sugar as the initial rub.  I really wanted something slightly more intense, so I opted for dark brown sugar.  Their recipe also called for ¼ cup sesame oil.  I reduced that to 2 tsp because I find sesame oil to be exceptionally strong, and if used in excess, tends to overpower all the other flavors.  Last I added some lime to add some extra zing.    The result was fantastic and a definite keeper of a recipe!  Enjoy!

You will need…
3-4lbs short beef ribs
1/3 C dark brown sugar
4 cloves grated garlic
2 Tbsp fresh grated ginger
2 tsp red pepper flakes
2 tsp sesame oil
½ C toasted sesame seeds
2/3 C Lite soy sauce
2 tbsp fresh lime juice
3 Tbsp flour
Place ribs in large bowl and sprinkle with the dark brown sugar. Rub sugar all over each of the ribs, making sure that all sides are well coated.  Set aside for 30 minutes.
In a medium sized bowl, add the remaining ingredients and pour over the meat ensuring all sides are well coated.  Allow to sit for 2 hours.
Next place the ribs on a grill that’s been heated to 375 and cook them for  5-6 minutes on each side. 
Remove from the heat and allow the ribs to rest for 5 minutes; then serve with your favorite rice dish.

These ribs look wonderful! Interesting that you coat them with brown sugar first, then the marinade. That probably keeps the sugar from burning. Great idea! Great recipe!

Thank you for visiting mjskit! The sugar rub is a great touch which I give credit to "Williams & Sonoma". Allowing it to sit on the ribs for 30 minutes provides a chance to add that great flavor.
