Make the marinade: In a large bowl combine Momofuku Soy Sauce, Momofuku Spicy Seasoned Salt, ketchup, gochujang, garlic, brown sugar, and honey. Mix well.

Toss ribs in marinade to coat evenly and marinate for at least 30 minutes or up to overnight in the fridge.

Place ribs and leftover marinade into a Dutch oven, arranging the ribs in a single layer. Add in enough water to cover the ribs and cover with a lid.

Preheat your oven to 350Β° and place the Dutch oven inside to braise for 2 hours undisturbed. Remove ribs from pot and set aside. Meantime, increase the oven to 450Β°.

Make a reduction with remaining braising liquid by cooking it over high heat. Place the ribs back into Dutch oven and coat with braising liquid.

In the heated oven, roast ribs for an additional 20 minutes, brushing ribs with the braising liquid once halfway through cooking time.

step 7

Garnish with more seasoned salt and jalapenos. Serve with rice and enjoy!
