The blogger’s view - Dongin-dong Spicy Steam Galbi

Need more spices in your appetite?
Burning hot flavor with chewy galbi!

Since 1970s, Daegu people began to enjoy beef galbis(rib) with red hot pepper sauce and garlic seasoning in tin pots. Unlike other regions where the galbis are cooked only with salty soy bean sauce, this spicy version of galbi dishes is unique in Daegu. It naturally calls for a round of liquor, or Soju to best befit the flavor, and the sauce left after you finish the spicy meat goes extremely well when mixed up with white rice. It gives burning hot tastes quite unlike galbi dishes in Seoul and Gyunggi province, but there is a trace of sweetness in the flavor as well. This food first showed up in the residential districts of Dongin-dong and now grew up into one of the most famous local foods.
