Grilled Flanken Ribs are first marinated in a mixture of ginger and garlic and then grilled to perfection. Learn how to use this uncommon beef cut!
While the Fish Tacos with Spicy Slaw recipe won out when I asked friends on Facebook what they wanted to see last week, this recipe was a close second. And now that summer is right around the corner, there couldn’t be a better time to make ribs. These aren’t your standard BBQ ribs. No, no, no these Grilled Flanken Ribs are cut flanken style and then marinated in a sweet gingery garlic sauce before being grilled to perfection.
Flanken style ribs might not be all that popular but I am not quite sure why. They are inexpensive. Flanken ribs are cut then so they cook quickly. They usually have some good marbling. Marinated flanken ribs are a tender, very flavorful cut of meat.
My grocery store always stocks flanken rips so I have been experimenting with different recipes using them over the last couple of months. Perhaps because I was first introduced to flanken ribs kalbi style, I have always been inclined to do an Asian style marinade with them. This recipe is the latest I tried and is definitely a favorite in our house. I served them with some sesame noodles and edamame and Kellan and Ryan kept asking for more. Reluctantly, I shared.
Next time, I’ll make a double batch. And I will be sure to serve it with this Garlic Rice and edamame!

Can you cook in the oven and how

Making the marinade tonight. Does not look like there is going to be much liquid to pour. Do you think a half can of Cola or a few ozs of pineapple juice would be ok to add to tenderize the ribs?

Hey Coby! I was away from my computer yesterday, sorry! I am guessing you already made the decision. Did you add either of those? I’m sure either would work!

Thank you! Finally a recipe without a ton of sugar in it! Taking these to a Labor Day BBQ Monday. I KNOW they will be loved!

Is there another name for this type of rib? I have never heard of them.

Pam- They are beef short ribs but they are cut across the bone instead of into short pieces. A butcher should be able to help you find some :)

my butcher calls them flanken beef ribs or Korean style ribs. You might also find them as jewish style ribs or LA cut beef ribs. Basically a thin cut of beef with 3-4 bones in it.

I adore flanken ribs, but never think to buy them. The flavors sound fantastic!
