Flanken style short ribs (or whatever meat you want to use) marinated in a delicious Korean style marinade.
Servings 3 servings


  • 1-1 1/2 lb Korean style short ribs or other thin sliced meat
  • 6 T soy sauce
  • 3 T sugar
  • 3 T sesame oil
  • 2 T sesame seeds
  • 1-2 cloves garlic grated
  • 1-2 green onions chopped
  • 1 kiwi
  • pepper to taste


  1. Combine all of the marinade ingredients except kiwi in a large resealable plastic bag and mix well. Remove flesh from kiwi, mush, and add to marinade. Add meat to plastic bag, remove air, and seal. Massage the marinade into the meat and marinate for 1 hour, turning occasionally. Remove from marinade and cook over high heat.

Recipe Notes

Adapted from: cookpad (japanese). 

Make sure not to marinade too long, as the enzymes from the kiwi will continue to tenderize the meat while marinating.
