Today I have to give another shout out to Hyosun over at Eating and Living. After making her mandu recipe a few weeks ago, I decided to try her mandu guk recipe. Oh my! 맛있었어요!!!
I followed her recipe exactly, including using the anchovy broth instead of beef broth. Don’t let anchovy broth scare you. While several years ago I never would have thought I’d have anchovies in my freezer, I do now and I use this broth all the time. It really doesn’t taste like anchovies at all (although it does have that smell while cooking). I usually make a huge pot of broth each time I make it and then freeze it, with about 4 cups per freezer bag. That way I don’t have to make the broth each time I want to make guk.
Here’s the link to the recipe. It was super easy and pretty fast. Enjoy!http://eatingandliving.blogspot.com/2011/01/manduguk-korean-dumpling-soup.html
