Korean-Style Beef Short Ribs with Pickled Vegetables

Korean-Style Beef Short Ribs with Pickled Vegetables

“I love beef Short Ribs that are cut Flanken-style. They can be cooked in a short time and can be eaten right off the bone. A simple marinade gives them such a great flavor. This recipe takes me back to Fourth of July parties with family and friends.”– Chef Pam Nash, Recipe Tester, is from Lakewood, Colorado and lives with her husband and son in Littleton, Colorado, and has a daughter in college.
