Korean Country Ribs: A flavorful Asian-inspired marinade transforms ordinary old pig ribs into a succulent delicious treat. You'll marinate the ribs all day as you take advantage of the long summer days spent away from the kitchen. Grill the ribs for 10 minutes on each side and serve immediately. 

Because of the lengthy marinating period required for this recipe, the ribs are fully saturated with flavor. This prevents the flavor from leaking out of the Asian marinated ribs while they are being grilled, as happens when you baste ribs with a sauce over a hot fire, or from the ribs themselves. 

Although these Korean country spare ribs taste similar to the boneless spare ribs you receive at a very excellent Chinese restaurant, you know precisely what components went into making them. That's all there is to it. 

A good reason why we've cooked these grilled Korean spare ribs at least twice or three times each summer for the last several years is that they are delicious, ridiculously simple to prepare, and have quickly become one of our favorite summer dinners. 

Make this marinade recipe in minutes, and after the ribs are marinating, you have the rest of the day to relax and not worry about preparing your meat for supper. That will give you some breathing room to prepare your sides!


– Medium-sized Country ribs, I used eight. 

– 1 Cup.Of soy sauce. 

– 1 Cup.Of light brown sugar. 

– 1/2 Cup.Of rice wine. 

– 1/3 Cup.Of water.

– 2 large spoons.Of honey. 

– 3 minced cloves garlic.

– 1/4 Cup.Of sesame oil.

– 3 large spoons.Of ketchup. 

– A small chopped onion. 

– A pinch.Of red pepper flakes. 

– Sesame seeds, for garnish. 


– Step 1: Firstly, you need to combine all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl, then transfer to a heavy-duty resealable bag and add the meat. 2. 

– Step 2: Then, refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to 24 hours. 

– Step 3: Next, remove the meat from the bag and transfer the leftover marinade to a saucepan over medium heat, cooking until the sauce reduces and thickens to a sticky consistency, and set it aside for later.  

– Step 4: After that, the meat should be cooked on a grill or in the oven; I browned them on a stovetop grill for 5 minutes on each side before baking them for 35 minutes. 

– Step 5: And now remove it from the oven and brush on a coat of sauce before returning to the oven for 5 minutes. 

– Step 6: You need to repeat this process 2 or 3 more times until the ribs are sticky, then sprinkle on sesame seeds to finish.
