“The Chew” co-host and former “Top Chef” star Carla Hall knows a thing or two about making food to please a crowd. Take a page from her cookbook “Carla’s Comfort Food” and make her recipe for Grilled Soy-Marinated Short Ribs below.


  • 3/4 cup soy sauce
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cup minced yellow onion
  • 1/4 cup minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup packed light or dark brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Twenty 1/2-inch-thick flanken-style short ribs (4 1/3 pounds total)
  • Cooking Directions

    In a medium bowl, stir together the soy sauce, water, onion, garlic, brown sugar, vinegar, ses- ame oil, and pepper. Divide the ribs between two gallon-size heavy-duty resealable plastic bags, and then divide the marinade between the bags. Make sure the marinade is evenly distributed among the ribs. Seal tightly and refrigerate for at least 6 hours and up to overnight.

    Prepare an outdoor grill for high-heat grilling (charcoal will make the tastiest ribs!), or heat a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. For both, cook the ribs, turning once, until nicely browned on both sides, about 5 minutes total.
