There are three dishes in Korean cuisine most people are familiar with. The first one is kimchi which is fermented spicy cabbage. The 2nd and 3rd most popular are Korean barbecued beef dishes, Bulgogi and Kalbi / Galbi. The primary difference between bulgogi and kalbi/galbi, is the cuts of beef used, although the marinate is the same.. Kalbi/Galbi uses short-ribs while Bulgogi is thinly sliced, against the grain rib-eye steak.
