    Panda Chef's Note:

    An "Anything Goes" would-be Korean soup. But if you don't have basic korean ingredients around the home, then I include my typical substitutions. * Kochukaru and Kochujang are typical Korean ingredients for Hot Pepper Flakes and Hot Pepper Paste (in that order) * If you do not have these available, I have included Cayenne Pepper and Maggi Sweet Chili Sauce as you can get the at most grocery stores This recipe was inspired by About.com's Naomi Imatome-Yun (Korean Cooking). This is my favorite variation

      This is a really good tasting soup, but the 2 tbsp of chili pepper HAS to be a typo, RIGHT? I am HUGE spice eater, (the hotter the better!), but I ended up having to add 3 more quarts of broth just to take the edge off the spice. And I didn't even DREAM of adding peppers to that. The only other change was to put 4 eggs in (since I increased the broth so much), more cabbage, and added zucchini, just for some extra veggies. Even with the extra 3 quarts of liquid, my hubby can't eat it at all. And while I love it, my nose is running all over the keyboard, and tomorrow might not be so pleasant. :)

      My family enjoyed this so much that they asked me to make it again today for supper. We love cabbage so I used more than the recipe called for. I had some fried tofu on hand so I added than in place of the meat, but everyone thought it did not need any type of protein added at all. I also did not add the eggs or chilies. I added all 2 tblsp of the red pepper flakes and it had a real kick . But, I knew my teenage daughter would not be able to eat it, so I ended up adding extra broth to reduce the heat. I think this soup is wonderful as is, but it could easily take extra veggies like corn, snow peas or broccoli. This recipe is a real winner. Thanks for the recipe.
