In a large bowl, combine the garlic, fruit pureé, onions, soy sauce, water, mirin, honey, chopped scallions, sesame seeds, sesame oil, and black pepper. Mix well.
Add the short ribs and coat them well and marinate at least 1 hour or overnight.
Heat the BBQ grill until hot. Grill each ribs pieces until the outside is brown but not burnt. Serve with lettuce and doenjang - Korean miso paste.
Beef: 1- 2 hours and baste while grilling. The best type of meat to make Kalbi with are sliced short ribs with a little bit of marbleized fat.
Chicken: 30 minutes
Vegetables: 15 minutes
The marinade can be used with about 2 lbs. of meat - chicken, short ribs, flank steak or London broil or any other cut of meat that is good for grilling or broiling. It can also be used with vegetables. While grilling on a BBQ grill is the best, you can also pan fry. If you pan fry, use about 1 teaspoon of oil to start. The oil from the beef will be plenty to cook the meat. You can use a little bit of olive oil when you cook vegetables.Boil the leftover marinade after I marinade the meat. You cannot re-use the leftover marinade but you can bring it to boil and use it as an extra sauce. Refrigerate any unused marinade in a glass jar for up to a week.
