How to Make Korean Seaweed Soup

Immerse yourself in the flavorful Asian cuisine with this Korean seaweed soup. It contains high fiber seaweed cooked in a savory broth.

Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 10 mins
Total: 20 mins


  • ½ oz dried seaweed, (Korean miyeok or Japanese wakame)
  • 4⅕ oz beef chuck, or round steak, sliced into smaller pieces
  • ¼ tsp fine sea salt, or more to taste
  • black pepper, to taste, cracked
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp garlic, minced
  • 5 cups water


  1. Soak the dried seaweed in cold water for 5 to 10 minutes while allowing it to expand. Drain the water away and rinse the seaweed a couple of times in running water.

  2. Drain the water out. Set it aside.

  3. Combine the sliced beef with the salt and black pepper in a small bowl. Mix them well and set aside until needed.

  4. Preheat a medium pot over medium heat for about 20 seconds. Add the sesame oil, seaweed, and beef. Stir them well for about 2 minutes until the beef is partly cooked.

  5. Add the soy sauce, garlic, and water.

  6. Cover the pot and boil over medium to medium-high heat for 10 to 15 minutes until the meat is fully cooked. Adjust the taste with more salt if needed.

  7. Serve warm with a bowl of steamed rice and other Korean side dishes. Enjoy!
