Galbijjim – Korean-Style Short Ribs
Galbijjim is a Korean staple reserved for special events and holidays like the Lunar New Year. Complex flavors, a rich sauce and intoxicating aromas conjure a homey atmosphere while you’re cooking and after you’re done plating. We recommend serving these short ribs with white rice and a drizzle of sesame oil.
