Yukgaejang (육개장): How To Cook Korean Food (Spicy Beef Soup)

Yukgaejang is a spicy beef soup that is a common Korean dish eaten during the winter months in South Korea. This was a dish recommended for us to cook by one of our youTube subscribers ‘Tiffany E’ which is her favorite Korean dish to eat during the winter. In this episode of Waecookin’, Rachel teaches Paul how to cook yukgaejang and Paul tries to put his western twist on the dish by applying an Italian fusion. What is he going to do? Whose will taste better?

Special guest judge Tiffany Ann Elwess joins this episode to determine which one is the final better tasting dish!
