Korean Short Ribs with Grilled Pineapple

Korean Short Ribs with Grilled Pineapple

Tips / Suggestions

  • Save some of the marinade for the pineapple. Rub the marinade all over the pineapple slices and let sit for 30 minutes before grilling the pineapple.
  • If you’re under a time crunch you could marinate the short ribs for just several hours, although I highly recommend 24 hours. I’ve had them both ways and the extra time definitely makes a difference,
  • Keep a close eye on the ribs when grilling them. They can burn pretty easily, but is should only take 5 minutes or less. You can tell their done with there’s a nice char on both sides. A little char = lots of flavor.

Korean Short Ribs with Grilled Pineapple

Recipe by BacusBBQ


Prep time


Cooking time




Shorts ribs sliced thin, soaked overnight in a pineapple / asian flavored marinade, and grilled over hot coals. These ribs are so good they're hard to share. Add in the grilled pineapple and rice and you'll be even happier.


  • 2 lbs 2 beef short ribs (sliced thin lengthwise across the rib bones)

  • 1 tbsp 1 salt

  • 1 tbsp 1 black pepper

  • 1 cup 1 light brown sugar

  • 1 tbsp 1 sesame seeds

  • 1 tbsp 1 green onions chopped (green end)

  • 1 1 pineapple cut into slices (or discs)

  • Marinade
  • 1/2 cup 1/2 Golden Mountain sauce

  • 1 cup 1 freshly cut pineapple

  • 1/4 cup 1/4 light brown sugar

  • 2 tbsp 2 mirin

  • 2 tbsp 2 chopped ginger

  • 1 tbsp 1 minced garlic

  • 1/2 cup 1/2 red onion chopped

  • 1 tbsp 1 roasted sesame oil

  • 2 tbsp 2 hot sauce

  • 2 tbsp 2 hoisin sauce


  • Season the ribs with the salt and pepper on both sides. Rub the brown sugar all over the ribs on both sides. Set aside while make the marinade.
  • Thoroughly combine all ingredients for the marinade in a bowl or large ziploc bag. Add the short ribs, mix well, and place in the refrigerator overnight (I prefer 18-24 hours).
  • Heat your grill to 450 degrees F. Place the pineapple on the grill and cook until each side has some good char on it. Don't worry, it's very hard to over grill pineapple.
  • Remove the ribs from the marinade and wipe off any excess. Place the ribs on the grill for roughly 5 minutes per side. Remove from the grill, top with sesame seeds / chopped green onions, and dig in. You can chop up the pineapple and mix with the rice as well. Makes for a really great combo.
