1 pound Korean style short ribs (cut 1/4-inch thick and 3-4-inch long)
½ cup soy sauce
½ cup brown sugar (packed)
2 cloves garlic (peeled and sliced)
2 tablespoons ginger (grated)

2 tablespoons sambal
½ lime (juiced)
4 corn tortillas

In a large bowl, add the soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, mirin and whisk to combine. Submerge the short ribs in the soy sauce mixture and allow to marinate for at least 2 hours in the refrigerator. 1.) Preheat a grill or grill pan over high heat. 2.) Remove the beef short ribs from the soy sauce marinade and season with salt and pepper. 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. Remove to a cutting board and cut into 1/2-inch thick strips. Assemble.
