Beef Miso Soup is a hearty and comforting Japanese dish that is easy to make. Here’s a recipe for you:
4 cups of beef broth
1 lb beef sirloin, sliced into thin strips
1/2 cup white miso paste
2 green onions, thinly sliced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
2 tsp sake or rice wine
2 cups of sliced mushrooms (optional)
2 cups of sliced bok choy or spinach (optional)
In a large pot, bring the beef broth to a boil.
Add the sliced beef, garlic, and green onions to the pot.
Reduce the heat to a simmer and let it cook for about 10 minutes.
Add the mushrooms and bok choy (if using), and let them cook for about 5 minutes.
In a separate small bowl, mix the miso paste, soy sauce, sesame oil, and sake or rice wine.
Slowly add the miso mixture to the soup, stirring constantly.
Cook for a couple of minutes more until the soup is heated through.
Taste the soup and adjust the seasoning as needed with additional soy sauce or miso paste.
Serve the soup in bowls and garnish with sliced green onions.
Note: You can use any other vegetables you like, such as carrots, onions, or bell peppers. Also, you can use pork or chicken instead of beef if you prefer.
This is a hearty and comforting soup that is perfect for a cold winter day. The flavors of the beef and miso complement each other nicely, and the vegetables add a great touch of color and nutrition. It’s easy to make and it’s a great way to use leftover meats and vegetables.
