Yookgaejang (Spicy Beef & Scallion Soup)

Yet another one of my favorite Korean dish. During the winter, Korea can be bitterly cold...this soup will help you stay warm because Korean's make this dish red with chili pepper.


1 lb beef (sliced thinly)
1/2 lb bean sprouts
1/2 c gosari (fern brake), drained
2 green onions (cut into 1-inch)
3 tbs Korean chili powder (can be purchased from any Oriental Stores)
1 tbs soy sauce
3 cloves of garlic (minced)
1 tbs sesame oil
8 c of water
salt and pepper to taste
In a big pot, saute beef with soy sauce, sesame oil, and chili powder for 4-5 minutes. Add water and bean sprouts and cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer for about 20 minutes. Add fern brake and cook for another 20-30 mintues until beef is tender. Add green onions and salt and pepper to taste.
