Shoyu Short Rib Pipikaula
This is a spin on a classic pipikaula recipe which I incorporate shoyu and use shortribs... For those of you who don't know, pipikaula is the Hawaiian version of beef jerkey.
5 pounds short ribs
1 cup Aloha shoyu
6 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1 clove garlic, crushed
Butterfly each short rib into 1 long piece, about 1/2 inch thick. Combine remaining ingredients and marinate meat in mixture 1 to 2 hours, turning several times.
Drain ribs. Arrange in a screened dry box and sun dry 1 full day, turning ribs once. To serve, pan fry in a little oil,oven broil or even cook on grill. Slice into smaller pieces while still hot.
