Todays recipe is a 1 bowl meal made with basically 2 ingredients! Its pat-kalguksu, knife-cut noodle soup with red beans. Its a very warming and comforting noodle soup: soft, creamy and a little nutty.Pat-kalguksu is very popular in Korea. its comfort food served in every department store basement food court. Because the beans can take so long to cook, its convenient to buy it there, but when it comes to preparing a large amount, homemade is best and easiest, just double or triple my recipe as needed.Did you ever make my patjuk (red bean porridge) recipe? Its very similar to this recipe, the main difference being that one is made with rice cake balls and one with noodles. Koreans have long discussions over which one is better! Its traditional to make patjuk for Dongjitnal (동짓날), the Korean holiday celebrating the winter solstice (December 21st or 22nd), but some people prefer pat-kalguksu.
