Korean Braised Short Ribs- Galbi jjim Recipe

Korean short ribs, also known as Galbi Jjim is my family’s favorite dish. Galbi jjim is braised or slow-cooked in a soy-sauce based sweet sauce with vegetables like onion, potato and carrots. When cooked correctly, it’s sweet, juicy and the meat falls right off the bone and you can eat it alone or over rice. It’s the perfect dish for colder seasons and I’m happy to finally share with you my secret recipe with a simple hack that’ll make your dish fool-proof.

HOW TO MAKE GALBI JJIM- KOREAN SHORT RIBS

INSTRUCTIONS (SAUCE): 

  1. Combine all sauce ingredients into a blender and then blend on high until smooth 

INSTRUCTIONS (MAIN):

  1. Soak beef in cold water for 30 minutes to an hour to get blood out of the beef 
  2. Take beef out of the water and pat dry
  3. Place beef, onion, potato into Wolf Gourmet Multi-Function Cooker (any slow cooker or dutch oven will work)
  4. Pour sauce over all ingredients 
  5. Turn on Cooker to “Manual” and “High” 
  6. Set timer for 3 hours
  7. Continue to monitor for 3-5 hours
  8. Once beef starts to cook more thoroughly, scoop out beef fat
  9. Once the beef is starting to feel tender, add in the carrots and bell peppers to cook for another hour 
  10. Once your carrots and bell peppers are cooked to the texture you like, feel free to serve
  11. So the longer you cook the dish, the more tender the beef will get. The best part is when the beef starts to fall off the bone!
