Galbitang (갈비탕) is a clear soup made with beef short ribs (galbi, 갈비). It’s a hearty, nourishing soup with a delicate flavor. The ribs are boiled along with Korean radish, onion, garlic, and ginger until fork tender. Beef short ribs are an expensive cut of meat, so this soup is considered a luxury among Korean soups and often served for special occasions such as wedding receptions. Like any other Korean style soups, you need to have this together with a bowl of steamed rice and kimchi.
