Galbi jjim is a Korean dish.  Beef short ribs slow-braised for a couple hours with a few vegetables, typically mushrooms, carrots, potatoes, and maybe chestnuts, in a sweet soy sauce stock.  Because of the time involved, and the high cost of beef, the dish is often reserved for special occasions.

A visit by a treasured son-in-law during the new year holiday would qualify as a special occasion.  After dinner, MIL commented that I appeared to be getting more accustomed to Korean food, as evidenced by my hearty appetite this evening. I replied that maybe her cooking is just getting better. As a treasured son-in-law, I can get away with snarky quips like that.
