How to make it

  • Kalbi Marinade:
  • Combine all ingredients except meat in a bowl and mix well. In a one gallon ZipLoc bag or large baking dish/container, combine meat and marinade See Photo. Refrigerate 1 day or overnight, flipping over the bag a few times to ensure the marinade is distributed evenly.
  • Kogi BBQ Sauce:
  • Whisk together all the ingredients. Add Sriracha a few drops at a time to the sauce until it’s hot enough for you. If you have one, put sauce in a squeeze bottle to make taco assembly more efficient.
  • Pickled Red Onion :
  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl or in a container. Allow to sit in fridge at least 2 hours, stirring every so often. The onion will begin to soften and turn a beautiful magenta color.
  • Napa Cabbage & Romaine Slaw with Chili-Soy Vinaigrette:
  • Whisk together the soy, vinegar, garlic, sugar, chili, and ginger. Add to napa and romaine in large bowl. Toss until mixed well.
  • Grilling Ribs and Assembly:
  • Grill short ribs about 3-5 minutes per side on a really hot grill. See Photo
  • Separate the kalbi meat from the bones and gristle. Cut the meat it into strips lengthwise, then turn 90-degrees and dicing the meat into a “brunoise” of kalbi, if you will. :) If you like the gristle, I’d separate that from the bones and dice it up too. Set the meat aside in a bowl until there’s enough meat to start making tacos en masse.
  • Kalbi “brunoise”
  • Heat a plancha or cast iron skillet over medium heat. Warm tortillas 30-45 seconds on each side and place in a tortilla warmer (or on plate covered with foil to keep warm).
  • Start assembling the tacos by putting a little meat in the tortilla, then top with a bit of the slaw, a little pickled red onion and then drizzle a little BBQ sauce to finish. Don’t overstuff the taco or else it will too hard to pick up and eat.
  • *gochujang can be found in asian markets. Most regular grocery stores carry the mainstream Annie Chun brand:
