    Korean Potato Soup with Beef – Gamjaguk


    Korean Potato Soup with Beef – Gamjaguk is a traditional Korean soup. It is really no secret that I love cooking Asian-inspired dishes at home. And I have a confession to make: this is one of my favorite simple soups because this recipe requires only a few ingredients and comes together quickly. Unlike many soup recipes, this one doesn’t require a long simmer to build complex flavor, as the addition of soup soy sauce brings complexity. This sauce is unique to Korea. It is light-colored, salty, and adds umami to the dish.

    To make the Korean Gamjaguk, start off by marinating the thinly sliced beef in soup soy sauce and garlic mixture. Now, shortly sauté the beef slices and add water. Bring to a boil and simmer. Then add potatoes, tofu and cook until tender. Finally, add noodles and scallions, and you are done. Quick and easy! This Asian-inspired soup is simple yet satisfying, and budget-friendly too.
