Thread: Kalbi for dinner

    Default Kalbi for dinner

    I saw some nice looking beef short ribs in the store and
    picked up a couple of packages. I decided to try to make
    kalbi/galbi with the ingredients I had on hand and came
    across this recipe.

    http://www.npr.org/templates/story/s...toryId=4793091

    I wound up making it in the crockpot, they cooked on low all
    day, since 9:30 this morning. They are tasty, falling apart. I'm
    glad I did use lower sodium soy sauce. I served them with rice
    and green peas.

    Next time I will look up the recipes people posted for me when
    I asked, and choose another recipe, and use the correct cut of
    meat, assuming I can find it then.

    My Korean mother-in-law used to make great kalbi. She would use a big
    block of short rib cut across the bone about 4" wide that was
    butterflied in an unusual way. Her marinade was thin and watery with
    floating bits of green onions that grilled or fried up perfectly while
    mine is more like a teriyaki sauce that burns into a charred mess when
    fried. I told my wife to get the recipe from her 20 years ago but for
    some reason she has been unable to do this. The recipe is slipping
    through my fingers and will soon be lost to me forever. :-(

    Oh! Bummer. And your mil fries it, not grills it? I hope you find
    a suitable recipe.

    Actually, I don't remember her cooking those at all. Maybe the men are
    supposed to do the grilling in Korea? The ingredients are pretty obvious
    - a ton of garlic, shoyu, sugar, green onions, sesame oil, toasted
    sesame. It could be that she uses no salt or pepper. Hers comes out as
    light, mine is thicker and icky sweet. Maybe she adds water or some
    other thinner, maybe she's using a different type of shoyu but my sauce
    falls short. It's OK, I guess but I like hers better. I will try the
    recipe you cite. What does the recipe mean by 6 "large green onions?"

    Mine turned out plenty salty using lower sodium soy sauce.

    Funny, I was reading this just a few hours ago thinking I'd try my
    hand at it.

    Looks good! I don't think I'd use the 7-Up option, though.

    It sounds delicious. I don't think I've ever had authentic Kalbi so I
    wouldn't have anything to compare it with. Once I had a delicious
    Mongolian beef dish in a restaurant in Boston. It was to die for and
    I've not been able to find anything even close to it since.

    (laugh) You might want to rethink that one. I have a door next
    to the counter where I placed the crock pot. All day long, flies
    started gathering to the screen. I chased them and they'd just
    come right back.

    Okay, my crockpot galbi attracted flies. How appetizing is that?

    I'm used to flies Horse **** tends to attract them. The great big mean
    flies. Not the common house fly. As long as they don't land in the soup I
    guess it's fine by me <G>.

    My Costco carries boneless shortribs all the time. They are wonderful, no
    wasteful fat and great for any dish including marinated/grilled.

    My mother-in-law lives with us but I find it tough to communicate with
    her. My wife agreed that it was a good idea when I asked her to get the
    recipe - this was encouraging. However, a recipe has yet to come forth.
    Call me paranoid but I'm beginning to think it's a long running
    conspiracy to keep Korean secrets away from the Americans perpetrated by
    the highest levels of the North and South Korean governments.

    Anyway, I felt the ribs would simply not stand for sitting in the icebox
    on hold for another day so I made the standard tomato-based braised
    shortribs. They were tasty, but it wasn't Kalbi.

    I've got another 2 packages of ribs in queue, if the secret recipe is
    not in my hot little hands by tues 1700hours, I will have no choice but
    to do what would be unthinkable to most Koreans - braise the shortribs
    in kalbi sauce. This would, for all intents and purposes, signal the end
    of any hopes of reaching a reasonable solution to this crisis and any
    further attempts will cease forever. God help us all.

    There is a Korean counterpart. I am blanking on its name, but I
    ended up getting it when I couldn't find unadulterated mirin.
    Take a look at the label of the normal Kikkoman mirin someday....
