This warming braised beef dish was originally considered an upper class dish in Korea, but is now a fixture of family celebrations, such as the upcoming Daeboreum. The holiday, which marks the first full moon of the new lunar year, falls on March 2; other food traditions associated with the holiday include drinking cold liquor in the morning, eating five-grain rice and cracking chestnuts with one’s teeth.

Sean Park calls for 3 tablespoons of honey in his version of Galbi Jjim, but suggests downgrading to 2 tablespoons if you prefer your meat less sweet.
