Recipe for Beef Ribs – Marinated Grilled Beef Short Ribs

I was at the dentist this week and while waiting for the local anesthetic to work, Dr. Chung told me he likes to marinate rib eye steak in Coca-Cola, soy sauce, red onion and garlic. When I left his office I started thinking that this marinade would go wonderful with beef short ribs. Costco sells boneless beef short ribs which are nice and meaty so I went over there and purchased some. Of course, this can be made with bone-in beef short ribs as well so if that is what you get great! I came home and marinated the beef for 24 hours. We grilled the ribs today and they were fantastic!

Here is what you are going to need for this recipe:

4 pounds beef short ribs
1 cup Coca-Cola
1 1/2 cups soy sauce
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1 tablespoon chili pepper flakes
6 garlic cloves, peeled and smashed
1 small red onion, cut into large pieces

Rinse and pat dry the meat. Place it in a container that will hold the marinade. Mix all of the marinade ingredients and pour them over the meat. Cover and refrigerate for 24 hours.

Remove the beef from the refrigerator 20 minutes before grilling them. Heat your grill on high for 20 minutes and then reduce it to medium. Remove the beef from the marinade and discard it. Place the ribs on the grill and cook it for around ten minutes.

Flip it and cook for another 10 minutes for medium rare meat. Serve and enjoy deliciousness! Bon apettit!
