Serves: 4-6
Difficulty: Easy


  • 1/2 cup small onion peeled and chopped
  • 1 small Asian pear cored and chopped
  • 3-4 garlic cloves peeled and chopped
  • 1″ piece ginger peeled and chopped
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp rice wine (mirin)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp roasted sesame oil
  • 1 tsp Farm Boy™ Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Farm Boy™ Sesame Seeds (24 g)

  • 2 green onions thinly sliced for garnish
  • 3 cups Farm Boy™ Jasmine Rice (750 g) or 1 and half cup raw

1. Place onion, pear, garlic, ginger, brown sugar, soy sauce, rice wine, water, sesame oil, black pepper, and sesame seeds in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until smooth.

2. Place ribs in large zipper bag and add marinade. Turn bag to make sure ribs are evenly coated, then place on a tray and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, but best if marinated for 24 hours.

3. When ready to cook, preheat grill to medium high and remove ribs from marinade, scraping and draining excess off completely.

4. Grease grill grates and cook ribs for 4-5 minutes per side, depending on thickness, or until lightly charred and cooked through.

5. Place on platter and garnish with green onions. Serve with Farm Boy™ Jasmine Rice, Farm Boy™ Organic Kimchi, and lettuce leaves.
