Daeji galbi is Korea's finest grilled spareribs (usually pork) that are succulent in taste as well as appealing to the eyes. Daeji galbi is much close to barbecued, L.A. style, galbi ribs which are crisply grilled to perfection with its tenderloins and bones still attached. However, daeji galbi tends to be quite spicy in taste as gochujang (red chili pepper paste) is added to the base of this marinade sauce.
To complement this meal, most restaurants serve a wonderful variety of traditional side courses (banchan) consisting of mostly vegetables in various sauces, marinades and broths. A traditional side dish such as kimchi and/or kkaktugi are usually served while eating this meal. Daeji galbi is usually cooked at tables by waiter or waitress who wanders from grill to grill, turning the meat over and letting you know when the meat is ready.
Korean 101: Daeji means pork in Korean and galbi is the word for spareribs, therefore, it translates into pork spareribs.
