Jjimgalbi

  • Jjimgalbi (title image)
Intro :
This is a unique dish made of beef ribs. The ribs are put into a dented nickel-silver pot, then mixed with hot red pepper and sliced garlic. This has been the signature dish of Daegu since the 1970s, and it is completely different from the steamed beef ribs that are made with soy sauce in other regions. You can mix the remaining seasoning with rice, which has the characteristics of peppery and hot taste, and enjoy the whole meal with a glass of soju (Korean distilled spirits). Additionally, unlike the steamed beef ribs of Seoul and Gyeonggi-do area, jjimgalbi has a unique taste that is hot and rather sweet, leaving your tongue burning. It was first introduced in the residential area of Dongin-dong, Jung-gu in the early 1970s and then later became popular in the traditional food village.
