Easy Boneless Kalbi


Chef’s Notes: Serve the kalbi as is, or use as a filling for lettuce wraps, sliders, sandwiches, burritos or soft tacos. This recipe utilizes a boneless short rib but you can use this marinade for bone-in kalbi and various cuts of pork or chicken that will be grilled or pan sautéed!
