Sep 27, 2023 | ALL RECIPES, ASIA


  • 2 pounds of beef short ribs (galbi cut)

  • 1 onion, sliced

  • 1 carrot, sliced

  • 1 potato, peeled and sliced

  • 1/2 daikon radish, peeled and sliced

  • 4-5 shiitake mushrooms, sliced

  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced

  • 1 thumb-sized piece of ginger, sliced

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil

  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds

  • 2 cups beef broth or water

  • Sliced green onions and sesame seeds for garnish



  1. In a large pot, add the beef short ribs and enough water to cover them. Bring it to a boil and let it cook for a few minutes. Then, drain the water and rinse the beef under cold running water to remove any impurities.
  2. In the same pot, add the beef ribs again and pour in the beef broth or water. Bring it to a boil and then reduce the heat to low. Let it simmer for about 1.5 to 2 hours until the beef becomes tender.
  3. Skim off any foam that forms on the surface while simmering.
  4. Add the sliced onions, carrots, potatoes, daikon radish, shiitake mushrooms, minced garlic, and sliced ginger to the pot.
  5. In a separate bowl, mix together the soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, and sesame seeds. Pour this mixture over the beef and vegetables in the pot.
  6. Continue to simmer for another 30-40 minutes until the vegetables are soft and the flavors have melded together.
  7. Taste and adjust the seasoning according to your preference.
  8. Serve the Sogalbi jjim hot in a large serving bowl. Garnish with sliced green onions and sesame seeds for added flavor and presentation.
