Korean Galbi Jjim

This recipe was featured in LA times and is from Father's Office founder Sang Yoon. It is a sweet soy based braised short rib. You can substitute the malted rice syrup with honey or corn syrup and the addition of jujubes is not critical. I hardly eat them in the dish anyways. If you cannot find short ribs cut flanken style, any short rib cut is fine as long as you can fit them into your cooker. This should make your ingredient shopping easier if you do not have easy access to a Korean market.

Ingredients

  • 3 1/2

    pounds bone-in beef short ribs, cut crosswise (flanken-style) into 2- to 3-inch strips

  • Kosher salt

  • 1

    tablespoon canola or vegetable oil

  • 1/2

    cup Korean soy sauce

  • 1/4

    cup Korean malted rice syrup

  • 1/2

    cup mirin

  • 1/2

    onion, grated

  • 4

    ounces daikon radish, grated (1/2 cup)

  • 1/2

    Asian pear, grated

  • 6

    cloves garlic, minced

  • 5

    dried shiitake mushroom caps

  • 5

    dried Korean red dates (jujubes)

  • 12

    (1 1/2-inch) daikon radish cubes

  • 2

    carrots, cut into 1 1/2-inch lengths

  • 1

    potato, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes

  • 1

    tablespoon Korean sesame oil

  • 1

    teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1/4

    cup chopped green onions

  • Toasted sesame seeds, for garnish

Directions

1. Trim the short ribs of excess fat and cut between each bone. Make two vertical cuts in each piece of rib down to the bone. Season each piece of rib with one-eighth teaspoon salt, rubbing the salt on all sides of each rib to cover completely. 2. Heat a sauté pan (preferably cast iron) over medium-high heat until hot. Add the canola oil and sear the ribs in a single layer until browned on all sides, 8 to 10 minutes (the ribs may need to be seared in batches). Drain the seared ribs on paper towels and set aside. 3. In a mixing bowl, combine the soy sauce, malted rice syrup, mirin, onion, grated daikon, pear and garlic. 4. In a 3½-quart stove-top pressure cooker, combine the seared meat and soy mixture. Stir in the dried mushrooms and red dates. Cover and cook at high pressure (15 psi) for 1 hour. Start keeping time once it has come to full pressure, reducing the heat just to maintain pressure (but watch to make sure the cooker does not go below full pressure for the entire hour). 5. Manually release the pressure on the cooker, then open the top. The meat should be very tender when checked for doneness. 6. Taste the sauce and season again if desired; it should be sweet and savory. The volume of liquid should have increased after cooking for 1 hour. Gently stir in the daikon radish cubes, carrots and potato, along with the sesame oil and black pepper. Close the cooker and heat over high heat to bring the cooker back to full pressure (15 psi). Once the cooker has reached full pressure, remove from heat and allow the pressure to reduce naturally; do not release the pressure from the valve manually. 7. When the pressure is released, open the cooker. Check the vegetables; they should be tender. Cool slightly, then serve with a garnish of green onions and sesame seeds, along with a drizzle of additional sesame oil if desired.
