Seollal (설날), the celebration of the Lunar New Year, is one of the biggest holidays in South Korea. Not only does it mark the passage into a new year, but it is also a time for family members to catch up with each other and celebrate eating a wide range of Korean traditional food. This series is our take (we had to comply with what ingredients are available in London) on 6 traditional Korean New Year dishes, and it is completely shot in POV and with binaural sound to allow you to have a really immersive experience. Headphones are recommended.
In this first episode, we make Tteok Galbi, which are grilled short rib patties.
Historically Tteok Galbi was a royal banchan (side dish) as the King used to love the taste of Korean galbi (ribs). But many in the Royal Court felt it was not befitting of a king to use his hands to rip the meat off the bones. So the royal chefs had to get creative. They cut the meat off the short rib, minced it, and put it back onto the bone, to allow the King to be able to eat using chopsticks. Nowadays, instead of pure rib meat, it is very common to use just normal minced beef.
This delicious recipe is easy and quick, but worthy of a King’s meal! Enjoy!
