Traditional Korean Style Seaweed Soup Recipe-



  1. Place the seaweed in water, enough to fully cover it, and allow to rehydrate.
  2. Once well softened, drain the seaweed and cut into 1-1/2” to 2” pieces.
  3. In a saucepan over medium heat, add the sesame oil, ½ tsp. of the sesame oil, 1 tbsp. of soy sauce, and the chopped beef. Cook for about a minute, until the meat is browned, stirring regularly.
  4. Now stir in the remaining soy sauce and the seaweed, and cook for 1 minute, again with regular stirring.
  5. Add in 2 cups of water, turn up the heat, and bring to a boil.
  6. Add in the garlic, stirring it in well, along with the remaining 4 cups of water. Again bring the soup to a boil, put a lid on the pan, and reduce the heat to just a vigorous simmer.
  7. Cook on simmer for 20 minutes, then do a taste test, adding either more soy sauce of salt, if you desire.
