  • 150 grams of dried seaweed
  • 150 grams of beef
  • ½ cup of white wine (if a Korean white wine is found to be better)
  • ½ cup of soy sauce
  • 4 cloves of garlic, 2 tablespoons of ground pepper, 1 sprig of fresh ginger
  • Cooking oil, salt, seasoning seeds, fish sauce.


  • Rinse the beef and marinate with 1 teaspoon of soy sauce, 1 teaspoon of white wine and 1/3 teaspoon of ground pepper (or ½ teaspoon of pepper), mix well and marinate for about 30 minutes.
  • Because of the seaweed we buy is dry, when you get it, you put it in a bowl of water for about 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, remove the seaweed, mix it with 1 teaspoon of cooking oil and ½ teaspoon of seasoning, to marinate for another 10 minutes to allow the seaweed to taste.
    Note: In this step, to prevent the fishy taste, before marinating seaweed with spices, squeeze the seaweed 1 time with vinegar and rinse with clean water, then proceed to marinate.
  • After you have marinated both beef and seaweed, stir-fry these two main ingredients before cooking the soup. Stir-fry beef to almost cook and put seaweed with it. Cook for another 5 minutes.
  • After stir-frying, add about 400 ml of water to the pot and bring to a boil, adding about ½ teaspoon of salt, ½ teaspoon of seasoning and a little fish sauce to taste. After seasoning, add garlic and crushed ginger to it, cook for another 2 minutes, then turn off the heat. The spiciness of ginger as well as boiling seaweed for quite a long time is also a small tip to eliminate the fishy smell of this dish.
