My mom usually makes kalgooksoo with oxtail broth (rather than anchovy broth or some other beef broth) that has been defatted and strained. But sometimes she uses a combo of both oxtail and anchovy broth (about a 1:1 ratio). The oxtail broth is extremely rich and should have a jello-like consistency when refrigerated.

She then adds the noodles and seafood, lets it simmer for a few minutes, then adds the beaten eggs and green onion to garnish. We season it at the table with yangnyum soy sauce (soy sauce seasoned with garlic, green onion, hot green pepper, red pepper flakes, and sesame oil) and crushed nori. One of my favorite dishes of all time.
