Yield: 2


Equipment Required:
Small Skillet
Cast Iron Skillet

Kalbi Marinade and Short Rib:
½ Cup Garlic
¼ Cup Onion
¾ Cup Low-Sodium Soy Sauce
¾ Cup Sugar
6 Tbsp Mirin
6 Tbsp Sake
¾ Cup Sesame Oil
¼ Tbsp Ichimi or Chili Flakes
¼ Cup Green Onion, Chopped
3 to 3 ½ pounds boneless beef short ribs, cut into 3-inch segments

3/4 Cup Tamari Soy Sauce
3/4 Cup Mirin
1/4 Cup + 2 Tbsp Sake
1/4 Cup + 2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
5 garlic cloves, smashed and peeled
3/4 Cup scallions, roughly chopped
1 1/2 Tbsp ginger, grated
1 1/2 Tbsp Black Peppercorn

Beef n' Bop:
1 Tbsp Garlic Oil
½ Cup Sushi Rice
1 Tbsp Green Onion, Chopped
¼ Cup Caramelized Onions
2 Tbsp Butter
¼ Cup Roasted Maitake
⅛ Cup Asparagus, Coined
2 oz Cooked Marinated Short Rib, Chopped into 1” Pieces
½ Tbsp Sweet Soy
1 tsp White Sesame Seeds
2 dashes Ichimi
1 Tbsp Crispy Shallots
1 Egg Yolk, separated
1 Tbsp Tare


Caramelized Onions:
1. Heat butter in a small skillet over medium-low heat
2. Add thinly sliced onions to the warm butter, stir to combine
3. Stir occasionally, cooking until onions are tender, and a deep golden brown

Maitake Mushrooms:
1. Heat the vegetable oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat
2. Add mushrooms to the pan in a single layer
3. Cook undisturbed for five minutes, flip and cook an additional 3 minutes until a char develops

Kalbi Marinade:
1. Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until well incorporated
2. Refrigerate any leftover Kalbi Marinade (Shelf life: 1 week)

Short Rib:
1. Heat oven to 325 degrees F
2. Combine short rib pieces and blended sauce in a heavy casserole dish or Dutch oven. Cover tightly with foil and a tight-fitting lid
3. Bake in the oven for 3 hours total. To check for doneness, carefully remove the lid and pierce the meat with the tines of a fork or point of a knife; it should yield easily

Sushi Rice:
1. Prepare sushi rice according to package instructions
2. Set aside for later

1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, add all of the ingredients and whisk together until smooth.
2. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer and cook until the sauce has reduced by half and thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon evenly, 15 to 20 minutes.
3. Strain through a fine mesh sieve. The sauce will keep for one week in the fridge.

Beef n’ Bop:
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
2. Add warm sushi rice to a cast iron skillet

8. Serve with a sprinkle of tare
