1/4 teaspoon ginger powder
1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
2 pounds Korean or flanken short ribs
white rice (optional)
2 green onions (optional)
1 tablespoon sesame seeds (optional)
1In a large zip-top bag, mix together the soy sauce, brown sugar, apples, pears, onion, water, garlic, rice wine vinegar, salt, pepper, chili pepper flakes, ginger powder and sesame oil. Add the short ribs and marinate overnight.

Korean short ribs are beef ribs that are cut thin. Sometimes the package will read "flanken-cut ribs"
They're marbled with fat, so they're super tender and flavorful.
Sometimes galbi ribs are also called kalbi ribs. The g and k are often interchanged in the English translation.
