Kimchi Beef Soup with Tofu. Korean Cuisine Recipe.

Beautiful and quite simple soup. I am using my home made kimchi (recipe here), but you can buy it, of course. Traditionally it’s made with pork, but i don’t eat pork, therefore i am cooking it with beef.

Kimchi makes an excellent base for the soup, as it packed with lots of vegetables, spices and flavours .


Beef steak- 350 g, cut in thin strips.

Mirin- 1 teaspoon.

Rice vinegar- 1 teaspoon.

Kimchi- 1 cup.

Tofu- 1 block, cut in slices, preferably fresh.

Spring onions- 2 pieces , chopped.

Gochungaru (Korean chilli flakes)- 1-2 teaspoons.

Korean chilli paste- 1 tablespoon.

Water- 1 litre.




Mix beef with mirin and vinegar, and let it marinade for 30 minuets.

Chop kimchi, (reserve the liquid) and mix with gochungaru and chilli paste.

Heat an oil in a pot, cook meat till turns white, add kimchi, cook stirring for a couple of minuets.

Add water,reserved kimchi liquid , cover and cook for 20 minuets on medium heat. Add salt to taste.

Stir in tofu and cook for a further 5 minuets, garnish with spring onions and serve.
