Seolleongtang (Korean Beef Bone Soup)


2 lbs beef bones 1 large onion, quartered 4 garlic cloves, minced 1 piece ginger (about 1 inch), sliced Salt, to taste 1 tsp black pepper Green onions, chopped (for garnish) Cooked rice (for serving)

Step 1:

Begin by giving the beef bones a good rinse under cold water. This step helps remove any impurities that might cloud the broth.

Step 2:

Place the bones in a large stockpot and fill it with enough water to cover the bones. Please bring it to a boil and then reduce the heat to a simmer. This is where the magic happens. Allow the bones to simmer for at least 4 hours, preferably longer, to extract all the goodness and flavor.

Step 3:

Add the quartered onion, minced garlic, and sliced ginger to the pot—season with salt and black pepper. Let the aromatics meld with the broth for an additional hour.
