Nothing screams summer more than BBQ! In this three-part series of “Noshing with Nyah,” co-worker Nyah grilled a mouthwatering meal at the Walsh Girls Campus.

The BBQ-inspired dish included Korean BBQ Short Rib Tacos with Kale Slaw and Corn on the Cob with Scallion Butter. Recipes below!

Korean BBQ Short Rib Tacos


  • 1 lb Korean style short ribs (cut 1/4-inch thick and 3-4-inch long)
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar (packed)
  • 2 cloves garlic (peeled and sliced)

  • 1/2 lime (juiced)
  • 4 corn tortillas


  1. In a large bowl, add the soy sauce, brown sugar, mirin and whisk to combine.
  2. Submerge the short ribs in the soy sauce mixture and allow to marinate for at least 2 hours in the refrigerator.
  3. Preheat a grill or grill pan over high heat.
  4. Remove the beef short ribs from the soy sauce marinade and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Drizzle with olive oil and place on the grill to cook until deeply charred on both sides, about 1-1 1/2 minutes per side.
