Korean soy sauce, (called Joseon ganjang (조선간장) in Korean) is a byproduct of the production of doenjang (Korean fermented soybean paste). Joseon ganjang, thin and dark brown in color, is made entirely of soy and brine, and has a saltiness that varies according to the producer. Traditionally in Korea, we have different kinds of soy sauce, depending on the length of the fermentation time. Basically we use 2 types of soy sauce the most. One is normal soy sauce, which is fermented for more than 3 years. The other is soup soy sauce which is fermented for 1 or 2 years. The longer you keep the soy sauce the darker color, and the stronger flavor. Nowadays, many Korean people just buy soy sauce from the store instead of making it at home since it is difficult and time consuming.

Today, I will share a tasty soup recipe using a very unique Korean ingredient, blood sausage. It is called SunDaeGuk in Korean. To be honest with you, I’m not a big fan of this Korean blood sausage and it is also difficult for me to find it in America. However, some of you requested it, so I kept watching for it to appear at a Korean grocery store. Finally, I found it recently, and I was excited. hehe So here we go, I can happily share my successful recipe for SunDaeGuk with you. 🙂 Instead of the Korean blood sausage, you can be creative and replace the sundae with some other kind of meat (beef, chicken, pork, seafood, or even tofu) and still make a delicious soup.
