One of my son’s favorite things to order when we are out is Korean Short Ribs, Kalbi. When my husband and I saw the ribs at Costco, we couldn’t resist. So here’s my smoked version of this traditional Korean dish.

I’ve made Kalbi once before, but it was a little different since I made them inside and turned them into a sandwich. This is closer to traditional Kabli. When looking up the recipe online, I compared my previous recipe and recipes I’ve found online. The one thing I found was that most of the recipes use Asian pears. How often do you have asian pears sitting around?

So, no asian pears for me, but I did have mango chunks in the freezer. So, viola! that’s what I used (oh and it worked on my earlier recipe as well). I didn’t use as much as before so the mango flavor really wasn’t too strong.

Next, a lot of the recipes called for a lemon-lime soda. Well, again, did I have that? Nope! But my husband had just made some Lemonade. What do you think I did? Yep, I used the lemonade.

Ok, so as you an see, I am a bundle of substitutions. Still was amazing and flavorful and so tender.

I hope you try it. You don’t have to use the smoker. You can grill or use the oven (roast or broil). If you use a grill, you will want to have a watchful eye as they will flare up due to the sugars and fat.

There you have it. I’m not much for words today. Enjoy!!!
