Galbi-jjim is a delightful Korean dish with succulent and tender braised short ribs. The meat is marinated in a flavorful mixture of soy sauce, sugar, and spices, and then slow-cooked until it’s fall-off-the-bone tender. This sweet and savory dish is often garnished with vegetables and served as a comforting, hearty meal, or as a special meal for celebrations or gatherings with family and friends. It is also a popular dish for holidays and festive occasions. Galbi-jjim is typically served as a main course, accompanied by steamed rice and an array of banchan. Galbi-jjim can be a comforting and satisfying meal during colder months due to its hearty nature, but this delicious dish is enjoyed year-round. This recipe requires some advance preparation, so plan accordingly.
