    For years and years, my family and I used to go to Korean restaurants and order our absolute favourite thing on the menu: Gooksoo Jungo (I think that’s the name?). It’s a hot pot item you can order and then an attendant comes over and cooks it in front of you either on a little heating element or right on the table.

    They first bring over a copper pot full of beef broth (always a mystery to me what it is exactly) and then they will cook sliced shabu shabu beef, mushrooms, leeks, green onions, shingiku, spinach and other vegetables in the beef broth. At the very end they will add this delicious hand-pulled flour noodle and then season with lots of crushed garlic and black pepper. Hot pepper flakes are served on the side.

    Does anyone have a recipe for this to re-create at home? Or even, something similar to it so I can finally taste it again after craving it all these years! (I moved away to a city where no Korean restaurant has it)



    Try this spelling: guksu jangguk. From your step-by-step description, it sounds like you are 99% on your way to buying the ingredients and making your own soup. If I were doing this, I’d cheat a little and use canned beef broth because there is enough flavor in the beef, mushrooms, garlic, onions and peppers to drown out the ho-hum flavor of the broth you use. Soups are so forgiving that if you don’t make them right, they taste great anyway.
