Summer has landed! Time to dust off those BBQs and get the coals fired up! Normally, shortribs are an economical cut that require low and slow, winter-style TLC to achieve perfection – like these braised and glazed ribs for example. However this alternative Korean technique will allow you to enjoy them all year round with equally delicious results, and minimal effort. ‘Cross-cut’ means that the shortribs are cut across the bone rather than along. Ask your butcher for the shortribs to be cut as thinly as possible. This is for two reasons. Firstly, it allows the robust Asian marinade to penetrate thoroughly and work its tenderizing magic. Second, it means the ribs can be grilled high and fast over a glowing charcoal BBQ.
