  • 2 pounds short ribs, or Korean style flanken ribs



  • Mix or blend together all the sauce ingredients except the cornstarch and water.
  • Put the ribs into a gallon ziplock bag and pour the sauce on top.
  •  Marinate the ribs for at least an hour, no more than 24 hours, although I've cooked these without marinating and they worked out as well. You do get a deeper flavor with marinating.
  • Pou in half a cup of water into your pressure cooker. Pour the marinade into the Instant Pot and use it as the liquid to help with the cooking.
  • Arrange the ribs in a circle along the sides of the pot.
  • Cook on High Pressure for 12 minutes, letting pressure release on it's own.
  • Once done, you can either broil them for a bit or just eat as is.
  • If you don't have a Instant Pot, you can just cook them on a grill or on the stovetop, or broil them in your oven at about 375F until done, but then you will have made Galbi, not Galbijjin. Equally delicious!
  • Thicken with the cornstarch slurry (Corn starch and 2 tablespoon water mixed) with the Instant Pot on Sauté. Poor sauce over ribs and eat!
