    When i was in korea my family use to make a soup with big piece of radish. I don’t know the name but i really miss it and i would like to know how i can do it :)

    Thanks !!!



    Check out my spicy stuffed cucumber kimchi recipe and the video. My radish soup made with beef and radish is there!



    Is this the soup?

    Moo Gook Recipe

    Makes about 4 servings


    White radish (also called moo, daikon, mooli, and Chinese white radish) – about 7 ounces/200 grams

    3 cups vegetable broth or water

    Soy sauce

    2-3 green onions (scallion), sliced

    1-2 cloves fresh garlic, minced (about half a tablespoon)

    1 tablespoon sesame oil

    Large handful of bean sprouts (optional)


    1. Slice white radish into bite-size pieces – about 1-inch squares is typical for most authentic versions of moo gook.

    2. In a medium size pot, saute radish pieces in sesame oil over medium heat for a couple of minutes – be sure to stir regularly. If you enjoy spicy foods, you can add a pinch of red pepper powder while you're stir-frying the radish. Add 1/2 tablespoon of minced garlic as radish is stir-frying.

    3. Add 3 cups of vegetable broth or water (vegetable broth imparts additional flavor to moo gook) to the radish, bring to a boil, then lower heat until soup is simmering, cover with a lid, and let it sit for about 7-10 minutes, or until the radish is nice and tender. The hallmark of authentic moo gook is tender radish, so be sure that you let it cook until it's nice and tender!

    Note: If you enjoy bean sprouts, add them just when the soup reaches a boil.

    4. Add green onions, cover and let simmer for another minute or two.

    5. Add soy sauce to suit your taste. It's fine to substitute sea salt for soy sauce, but soy sauce adds more flavor.

    Koreans typically enjoy moo gook with a bowl of rice and a number of side vegetable dishes. But moo gook is so good that you can enjoy it on its own, or with a small bowl of rice. Personally, I enjoy adding freshly cooked rice to moo gook and eating it like a stew.

    Moo gook that's properly made will look somewhat clear, like a bowl of chicken soup.
