: (Dongindong-style spicy stewed beef ribs
A dish unique to Daegu since the 1970s, Dongindong Jjim galbi consists of beef ribs cooked in a worn out aluminum pot seasoned with spicy red pepper powder and chopped garlic. This dish is completely different from the steamed short ribs cooked in soy sauce that is served in other areas of Korea. The unique feature of this dish is the tongue-tingling, burning sensation it creates when enjoyed with soju (hard Korean alcohol) or rice mixed with leftover spices. Unlike the steamed ribs from the Seoul and Gyeonggi Province areas, the way its sweet and spicy taste sets your tongue ablaze is unparalleled. This food first appeared in the early 1970s on a residential street in Dongin-dong, Jung-gu, which has since blossomed into a small "village" of local food establishments.
