Korean Rice Cake Soup Print Email

Many Koreans eat Rice Cake Soup on New Year’s Day, believing that each bowl adds one year to your life.

Beef broth
Rice Cakes
chopped green onions
chopped garlic
sesame oil

Cut the beef into thin strips and fry in a small amount of oil. Pour the broth into a large soup pot and bring to a boil.

Meanwhile, separate egg yolks and whites, beating each lightly. Cook egg yolk in a small pan like an omelet. Place on plate to cool. Roll up, then cut in thin shreds. Repeat with egg whites.

When the broth begins to boil, add the onions and garlic, along with pieces of rice cake, and cook. You can also add ramyun (Korean noodles). Add the meat. Season to taste with sesame oil, salt and pepper. Serve in bowls with egg strips on top.
