Book-uh Gook - 북어국

The MR went out drinking with his buddies last night, so I thought I would make him some book-uh gook to cure his headache in the morning...

Start by rinsing and draining some book-uh. Then cut up all the book-uh into 1/2 inch pieces. I used about 2 cups of it for today's breakfast.

In a pot take some beef (that has been drained of it's blood) and saute it with a 1/2 tb of sesame oil, 3 tb of gook ganjang, and 1/4 tb of minced garlic.

After the meat is done, add the 2 cups of book-uh.

Then add about a 1/2 cup of moo and mix around well. Then add 5 cups of water, close the lid, and bring to a boil...

Once the soup is boiling, add a handful of kongnamool, close the lid, and let it boil again.

After about 5 minutes, add some tofu and close the lid yet AGAIN....

Finally, finish it off with about 1 cup of green onions. Close the lid and let it boil for about 20 minutes and you're DONE~ Book-uh gook is supposed to help people with their hangovers and the MR swears by it. =P


  1. what a good wife you are to take care of him with this soup. i'm sure he appreciates it!

    ryc: i'm not sure, but i think the page has to have the 'subscribe' link on it? you can add it to your layout like i did mine.

  2. ^^thanks! I just added it~ it's new...no wonder I couldn't find it before. =P

  3. Funny how different cultures have different hang over food. My columbian gf makes her husband fried flour balls for a hangover. It's pretty good actually! I don't get drunk ever but I like jook (rice porridge) and fried dough.
