Since half of this cooking team is a born-n-raised Southern boy, it was only a matter of time before this blog went K-country (Our name for Korean Southern fusion food). The first item on our K-country menu is actually a two-fer: Marinated Pork Ribs and Baked Beans. They are so amazingly delicious you will want to put on some cowboy boots and drink some beer.
THE QUANDARIESHere is the biggest issue with Southern BBQ in Korea - Molasses. It's a bitch to find... or so we thought. In actuality, Korea exports over 66,000 tones of molasses every year. They call it 당밀 and you can order it on G Market for cheap. Just do a search for 당밀 and have a co-worker help you order. You'll be glad you did. Now, onto the magic
First, add all the ingredients together in a mixer, food processor, blender, whatever. Blend it all together and poor over your meat in a small container. Add additional water to allow the marinade to cover the ribs and put in the fridge over night.
When you are ready to make dinner/lunch, take out the ribs and put them into tinfoil packets. 4-5 ribs a packet works nicely. Put these on the grill to cook. This will help keep them juicy. Once they are cooked, you can quickly brown them on the open flame.
