Korean Style Soup


This is my take on a Korean Style Soup.  The tofu I used was soft, but not the tube-shaped style that is typically used in soondubu.  It came in a tray.  I don't have a special cooking stone bowl pot, so I had to cook the soup in a regular pot as well as the egg.  When this is served to me in the restaurant, they give the egg to you to crack into the soup yourself.

  • 2 Tablespoons canola oil
  • 5 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 cup green onions, chopped
  • 1/2 yellow onion, chopped
  • 3 ounces pork belly, chopped
  • 4 Tablespoons Korean red pepper powder
  • 2 Tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 Tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons shoyu (soy sauce)
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup kim chee, chopped
  • 3 ounces mushrooms
  • 1 cup bok choy
  • 2 eggs
  1. Prepare ingredients as described above (chop)
  2. Heat canola oil in pot.
  3. Add garlic, green onions, and yellow onions to the oil and stir fry until fragrant.
  4. Add pork belly, stir fry, and cook well.
  5. Add Korean red pepper powder, sesame oil, oyster sauce, soy sauce and stir.  Let simmer for a few minutes to let the flavors come together.
  6. Add water and bring to a boil.
  7. Add kim chee and stir.
  8. Add mushrooms and bok choy.  Push it under the soup and bring to boil.
  9. Crack eggs directly into soup and let it sit until the whites of the egg turn white.
  10. Serve immediately.
  11. Enjoy!
