  1. Whisk together the soy sauce and sugar in a bowl until the sugar has dissolved, and stir in the black pepper, garlic, green onions, sesame oil, and sesame seeds.
  2. Place the ribs in a large bowl, and pour the marinade over the ribs. Stir to coat the ribs with the marinade, and refrigerate for 1 hour. Stir the ribs and marinade again, and refrigerate for 1 more hour.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  4. Remove the ribs from the marinade, discard the marinade, and grill the ribs until brown and no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes per side. Have a spray bottle of water handy in case the ribs flare up.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

AMAZING recipe, a must try. It was loved by with all of us. I cooked it on the bbq but I think next time I will do it in the oven because it flared up.

this is a very simple asian recipe. I live in japan and it taste very similar to the sauces they use. I rate this 5 stars and my husband and children love it.

Amazing! Had "regular" beef ribs, not the special cut. Didn't have green onions or sesame seeds. I was skeptical about a recipe with 4 ingredients (soy, sugar, garlic, sesame oil) but these w...

Fantastic recipe! I had to cook them in the oven due to bad weather, but they were wonderful. Will make again.
