Kuksi is a traditional Korean dish. The name of the dish comes from the Korean word “kuksu,” which Soviet Koreans transformed into “kuksi,” meaning noodles and soup made with noodles.

In addition to the noodles, the dish also includes a savory broth, pieces of meat and lots of vegetables.

Korean-style kuksi can be served both hot and cold. Today I want to share with you a recipe for a cold version of the soup, which will be very relevant in anticipation of the approaching summer heat. The dish is light, refreshing and very tasty. Thanks to the large amount of vegetables and other components, it perfectly satiates without leaving a feeling of heaviness.

To make Korean kuksi soup, prepare the ingredients. At first glance it may seem that there are a lot of ingredients, but all components can be divided into 3 groups – vegetable additives, broth, and noodles.

Boil 3 liters of water for the broth and let it cool while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.

Fry the meat in a small amount of vegetable oil until the meat is white and juicy. Then add the chopped onions and stew all together for a few more minutes until tender. Turn off the fire and add a pinch of salt and ground black pepper.

Beef can also be used to cook kuksi, but in this case the cooking time will increase. If for pork it is enough to cook 15-20 minutes, then beef should be stewed at least 30-40 minutes.
