Put ribs in a gallon ziplock bag. This keeps you from having to touch the ooky raw meat.

Sprinkle tenderizer over beef and mix well to evenly coat.

Meanwhile, start preparing the marinade.

In a bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients.

Add marinade to the ziplock bag, press out excess air from bags, and seal. Turn bag over several times to ensure beef is evenly coated. I like to massage it all together all squishy.

Refrigerate for at least 4 hours but preferably overnight.

Heat oven broiler to high.

Line a baking pan with foil and place the ribs on them.

Cook for 3 minutes, then flip the ribs over and cook again.

Garnish with thinly sliced green onions, if desired.
