Needed:

  • 1/2 can spam
  • 3 sausages
  • 1 cup dduk
  • 1 green pepper and 1 red pepper
  • 1/2 small squash
  • 1/2 small onion
  • 1 cup kimchi and lots of kimchi juice
  • 2 mushrooms
  • 1 ramen
  • sauce: 1 TB red pepper paste, 1 TB red pepper powder, 1/2 TB minced garlic, 1 Tb rice wine, 1 TB gook ganjang, 1/2 TB shrimp jut, 1 TB beef flavoring, 1 TSP salt, 1 TSP pepper

First cut up everything you need like so. I used about 3 sausages, 1/2 can of spam, 1/2 small onion, 2 mushrooms, 1/2 small squash, 1 jalapeno, 1 red pepper, and a fistful of green onions.

Add roughly 4 cups of water into a pot and bring it to a boil with some anchovies and dashima. Let the broth cook for about 15 minutes or so until the water is tinted slightly yellow.

Mix together the following: 1 TB red pepper paste, 1 TB red pepper powder, 1/2 TB minced garlic, 1 Tb rice wine, 1 TB gook ganjang, 1/2 TB shrimp jut, 1 TB beef flavoring, 1 TSP salt, and 1 TSP pepper for the sauce and set it aside.

In a pot, add the kimchi and bring it to a boil and saute it for about 5-10 minutes. I used a jungol pot on our dining room table, but if you don't have one just cook it in a large pot on the stove and serve immediately while piping hot.

Then add your spam and sausages and let it cook for another 5 minutes.


_MG_9774
Add all your remaining vegetables and mix well.


_MG_9776
Throw in the mushrooms last and then add the boiling anchovy/dashima broth from earlier.


_MG_9777
Add the peppers and green onions....


_MG_9778
Along with the sauce and bring everything to a boil.


_MG_9782
Add your dduk...


_MG_9783
...and your ramen.

And enjoy as soon as the ramen is done! It's extra spicy so be careful!

PS. You can add pretty much anything to this soup that you have on hand such as tofu, udon, different varieties of mushrooms, etc. Use your imagination and get creative!
