Tender and delicious grilled Kalbi beef Korean style short ribs prepared in a sweet and savory marinade and served with white rice and Asian cucumber salad.


  • 1 package AdapTable Meals Kalbi Korean Style Bone-In Beef Short Ribs
  • 1 cup jasmine rice, uncooked
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced

Asian Cucumber Salad

  • 2 cucumbers, sliced thin
  • 1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon table sugar
  • dash crushed red peppers
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. For the rice: Prepare rice according to the instructions on the package. I like a ratio of 1 cup rice to 1 1/2 cups water.
  2. For the Asian cucumber salad: Meanwhile, combine all cucumber salad ingredients (except for the cucumber, onion, and cilantro) in a small bowl. Mix well and set aside. Place cucumber, cilantro, and onion in a larger bowl. Pour dressing over cucumbers and toss until evenly coated.
  3. For the short ribs: Preheat grill to medium-high heat with the cover down. Clean the grates well. Lower heat to medium (about 400°F) and grill for about 4 minutes per side with the cover down. Ensure internal temp reaches 140°F. Let ribs rest for 5 minutes before serving. Garnish with thinly sliced green onions and serve with jasmine rice and cucumber salad.


Don’t have a grill? These ribs can also be cooked on medium-high heat in a cast-iron skillet on the stovetop with similar cook times. Always ensure the internal temp reaches 140°F with a digital thermometer.
