Flanken-style ribs are cut across the ribs into 1/2-inch-thick slices with small bones between them. Find them at the meat counter of your grocery store or at Asian markets; do not use thick-cut meaty English-style short ribs for this recipe. Marinate the ribs in Korean kalbi marinade (available at most grocery stores and Asian markets) for as long as you can for the best flavor.
