Spicy Korean Beef Noodle Soup

This Spicy Korean Beef Noodle Soup is made with abundant beef bone broth and spiced up with Korean red pepper flakes ~ it will heat up your belly.

It was simply 15 degrees one day recently (3 degrees with the windchill aspect) and this Hot Korean Beef Noodle Soup was calling my name. I had actually made a batch of Mineral Rich Beef Bone Broth so it was the best factor to attempt this wintery Korean soup.

I have actually got a couple of Korean cookbooks in my collection and pieced together a version of a spicy beef soup called Yuke-jaong. Typically, this soup is made with flank steak, bean sprouts and fiddlehead fern, so my variation is a minor twist, utilizing bok choy and shitake mushrooms in location of bean sprouts and fiddlehead fern, and short rib meat (from the Mineral Rich Beef Bone Broth) rather of flank steak. I likewise used mung bean noodles rather of sweet potato starch noodles that prevail in Korean cooking.

Control the spiciness by varying the amount of Korean red pepper flakes. When I made this batch, it wasn’t that spicy, so the second time I attempted it, I sprinkled in some more Korean red pepper flakes. Korean red pepper flakes are not the same as red chili pepper flakes– Korean red pepper flakes are milder. If you desire to utilize regular red chili pepper flakes instead, I would recommend grinding it finer and utilizing a lot less.

Now, take a seat, and simply think of a rich, steamy bowl of this Spicy Korean Beef Noodle Soup in front of you– simply what the cold weather calls for.

Add more or less red pepper flakes depending upon how hot you like it. I utilized 1 1/2 tablespoons and it was not too hot.
