육개장–Korean Spicy Beef Soup

When it's hot eat something hot to fight back... That's why I had to have Korean spicy beef soup. Yookgaejang is a spicy beef soup consisting of variety of ingredients.  It is made of shredded beef boiled with bean sprouts, fern brake, red pepper, green onions, garlic, soy sauce, oil and pepper. It is served as a hot soup and usually eaten with a bowl of white rice.  The key ingredient of yookgaejang is the Korean chili powder (kochukaru) which turns the soup into a nice red color.  This is one of Korea's hottest dishes and is not for those who dislike spicy foods. The soup is considered to be very healthy and refreshing in taste. So far, the best one is from Shila in Gardena. Meaty and yummy.
