How to butterfly the short ribs meat - watch the video for the instruction on how to make the meat into thin strips. This is a trick we use for making real short ribs (Kalbi) at home. Tamari or coconut aminos - if you don't have any problem using soy you can use Tamari but if you can't tolerate soy, use coconut aminos. However, coconut aminos does not have high sodium content so you might have to use more coconut aminos or add sea salt to taste. Cooking Kalbi - you can grill kalbi or you can fry the meat on the pan. Either way, the caramelized sugar will brown the meat very nicely. If you want to use the oven, you can broil it but be very careful you don't burn the meat. The sugar will burn very easily in the broiler.
