Hi everyone,

Thanks for your patience. I finally made galbi jjim with my own recipe yesterday. Hurray~!

I am blushing to say this though. It tasted lip-smackingly delicious! It was sweet but not too sweet, tender, juicy, and aromatic. 🙂 I am sure you will love this recipe too.

Galbi Jjim (갈비찜) is one of the most famous Korean dishes to foreigners, and also commonly consumed during festive season (e.g. New Year’s Day).

And, I used my precious pressure rice cooker to steam this, so it really made the cooking easy. If you have other types of pressure cooker, you can use those instead.

Anyway, hope you like my recipe!

Ingredients for Pressure Cooker Pork Ribs (Serves 4)

Ingredients for Korean Style Pressure Cooker Pork Ribs

Meat and Vegetables

  • 1 kg pork ribs
  • 1 small carrot
  • 1 small onion
  • 3 small potatoes
  • 150g daikon radish

Sauce for getting rid of smell

Marinade (mix these well in a bowl)

  • 2 Tbsp plum Extract , you can substitute with asian pear or red apple
  • 5 Tbsp dark brown sugar
  • 3 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp ginger powder
  • A few sprinkles of ground black

How to Make Pressure Cooker Pork Ribs

Stage 1. Getting rid of blood and smell

  1. Soak the meat in cold water. Change the water every so often. (Soak for about 1 hour to get rid of the blood). After 1 hour, drain the water.
  2. Make deep cuts on the meat so as to absorb the seasoning better and cut them into medium pieces (follow the bone line). Then put it into a bowl.
  3. Add the ‘sauce for getting rid of the smell’, mix it well, and leave it for about 20 minutes.

Stage 2. Marinating meat and cutting vegetables

1. Pour out the marinade sauce into the meat bowl. Marinate it for at least 4 hours. (Overnight marinating guarantees the best taste. The picture below is 24 hours marinated pork.)

  1. I’m off to the market to buy some beef ribs to make this along with a few other banchan dishes for my dad, he’s home alone 🙁 since my mom is vacationing in Korea….I’ll let y’all know how it turned out!

  2. Hi Sue,

    I have been a big fan of your website for a long time and I have used many recipes. Thanks for all your hard work and the pictures do look amazing. It really helps to have the visuals there. One thing, do you have a recipe for kimchi gigae? or soon dooboo gigae?

    Thanks,

    Erica

  3. Hi, don’t know if you check these replies anymore but I’m wondering what type of pork ribs you bought and how you were able to cut through the bone in one inch pieces. I know you said to cut along the bone line but the bone ran all the way through and I couldn’t cut into smaller pieces.
    thanks!

  4. Hi baobaighost

    Good to hear that you really liked it. I think the plum extract does both. It makes meat tender and also gives a good taste and smell.
    Yesterday, I used minced apple for other cooking instead of using plum extract, and it worked out well too.

    I think there is a big difference in steaming the meat in a pot and pressure cooker. First it is about the matter of time, as you said the pressure cooker is a lot faster (2 times faster or more), and the meat is much more tender.
    I tried steaming it on the pot as well, it was OK, yet the pressure cooked meat tastes so much better in my opinion.

    It really narrows down to what kind of tool is available to you. If you like it your way, go with it! 🙂

  5. Hi,
    I made this dish last night and it turned out very well. Thanks for your recipe! Actually, I didn’t use the plum extract to make the meat softer. Does plum extract really make the taste different or just only make the meat softer? I found out actually you don’t need the pressure cooker. What you have to do is steamed the pork ribs with medium heat for about 30 mins then turn off the heat. Remember don’t open the lid yet. Wait for another 30 mins before you open the lid. To me, this is the way I made the pork softer. If the meat is not ready, you can repeat it again. To me, the meat is always ready after the first time I steam the pork. I guess the pressure cooker is faster for sure.

  6. Yes, you can substitute beef ribs instead of the pork.
    It should work out the same way, but I haven’t tried it myself yet. (Beef is much more expensive than pork in Korea).

  7. hey…i had just recently found your blog….its interesting!!!! im a malaysian and i love korean food too…so thats why im surfing the internet to get some recipes…i started with chinese cabbage and radish kimchi……and it turn out to be quite nice….haha…anyway im looking forward to read more recipes of your blog…
