Hi Maangchi – do you have a good recipe for Haejung-guk?
There are so many kinds of recipes for Haejang-guk (hangover soup)depending on what ingredients are used. Yes, I will post it later. Thank you very much!
Check out my haejangguk recipe here! https://www.maangchi.com/recipe/ppyeo-haejangguk
I know of 5 different guk… soups that have various names but are all considered to be Korean hangover soups.
If you have tried one before and can give us what you think the ingredients you ate were it will help in narrowing the recipe yyo are looking for. 😉
I was just watching a Korean recipe video that claims gamjatang is “hangover soup”. I mentioned that the hangover soup I became familiar with during the 10 years I lived in South Korea was haejangguk (actually means “hangover soup”). My Korean wife (lived in Korea most of her life) disagrees, but she doesn’t cook much at all (…and that’s why I visit your site often… to make her happy).
Anyhow… who calls gamjatang “hangover soup”? Is that correct at all? I asked the question on the woman’s facebook page and she said that gamjatang was the same, but potatoes are the only difference. That is definitely not my experience, if Korean restaurants in Seoul and Gyeonggi-do can be trusted. What do YOU think????
