TYLER, TX (KLTV) - · This dish is easy – you marinate the beef short ribs overnight in a beet marinade to provide the nice, red color, then put it on the grill like a steak. The marinade has a touch of sweetness but also some umami from the grilling smoke. Shalene McNeill with the Texas Beef Council shows us how it’s done, using a recipe by Chef Todd Duplechan.

· 1 teaspoon ginger, grated
· 1/2 teaspoon garlic, grated
· 1/4 teaspoon Chinese Five-Spice
· 1 pound Bone-In Beef Short Ribs, cut into 1/4″ strips (your local butcher should be able to do this)
- In a bowl, mix together all ingredients except beef.
- Place the beef in a glass casserole dish and pour over the marinade.
