I tend to cook at least 1 soup dish every week and that is because I’m on soft food diet. Since I was going on Korean route tonight, I cooked Kimchi Soup.
I hope to cook Kimchi stew next but I’m delaying that until I get all the easy dishes cooked😜
The secret to the Kimchi Soup is the Kimchi. You have to make sure to get a good one as most of the flavor of the soup is based on how the kimchi was prepared. I used firm tofu in this dish but I believe the soft ones suit the Kimchi Soup better. Anyhow, still successful! Also, the smaller the cut of the pork belly the better.
- 2 cups kimchi with juice
- 2 tbsp gochujang
- 1/4 kilo pork belly cut into small cubes
- 1 tsp sugar
- 5 cups water
- 1 pack 400g tofu cut into small cubes
- 2 stalks leeks
In a large pot, cook kimchi, gochujang, pork and sugar over high heat.
add water and bring to a boil.
Cook for 30 minutes.
Add tofu and lower heat to medium. Cook for another 10 minutes.
Add leeks and mix the ingredients.
Serve and enjoy! Best eaten with plain white rice.
