"I don't know if I've ever seen a recipe on the Internet with a 5/5 rating and over 65,000 votes, but here's one more 5 from me. This stuff is terrific. It's the perfect dinner for a cold night (or what passes for a cold night in California). I followed the recipe closely; I did bump up the umami by adding a slug of shio koji to the stock, but it would have been just fine without it. I really wouldn't change a thing. I did use store-bought kimchi; if I used homemade, which tends to run a little spicier, I might cut back on the gochugaru a bit, but the quantities here are perfect for the commercial stuff."
