Brief Description

Galbi is a very popular Korean meat dish made from beef short ribs. The ribs are marinated in a sauce made from Korean pear juice, rice wine, soy sauce, garlic, sesame seed oil and sugar. Most recipes contain these basic ingredients but many variations exists from sweet to spicier marinades.

The meat itself is often cut in the L.A. rib style, which is basically a rack of ribs cut in thin slices across the bones. This makes eating galbi easier with chopsticks or with fingers. Galbi is usually available in most Korean restaurants but it is generally served in venues that specialize in galbi and the meat is cooked on an in-table BBQ.

This dish is usually served with a side of lettuce, spinach, or other leafy vegetable, which is used to wrap a slice of cooked meat, often times along with a dab of ssamjang, kimchi, or other side dishes, and then eaten as a whole.

Where is it

Galbi is a grilled meat dish from South Korean culture. There was a time when the killing of cattle was prohibited, but King Jeongjo needed workers to build Hwa Castle. That being the case, he would permit one slaughterhouse to process beef. In the late 1700s and many years later, a customer at a restaurant suggested that rather than simply putting beef ribs in the soup, they should roast them.
