  • 2 lbs pork ribs
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons gochujang (Korean chili paste)
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 green onions, chopped (for garnish)
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds (for garnish)


  1. Start by combining soy sauce, brown sugar, gochujang, minced garlic, grated ginger, and sesame oil in a bowl. Mix well to create the marinade.
  2. Place the pork ribs in a large zip-lock bag and pour the marinade over them. Seal the bag and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, preferably overnight, to let the flavors meld.
  3. Preheat your grill or barbecue to medium-high heat.
  4. Remove the ribs from the marinade, allowing excess marinade to drip off. Grill the ribs for about 4-5 minutes per side, or until they are cooked through and have a nice char.
  5. Remove the ribs from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes. Slice the ribs between the bones and serve hot, garnished with chopped green onions and sesame seeds.
