  • Author: Seonkyoung Longest
  • Total Time: 10 mins
  • Yield: 4 1x




For the Veggies & Mandu

  • a handful of beansprouts or 1/2 of onion sliced
  • 2 cups napa cabbage or regular cabbage, cut into bite sizes
  • 1 zucchini or squash, cut into half-moon slices
  • 3 Mexican green onions or 1 bundle of regular green onions, cut into half lengthwise then 2-inch long pieces
  • 1/2 pack of enoki mushrooms or a handful of any of your favorite mushrooms
  • 1 soft or medium-soft tofu, sliced into 1/2-inch thick
  • handful crown daisy or any other green leafy veggie
  • 1 lb fresh or frozen dumplings of your choice

For the Sauce & Stock


  1. Spread beansprouts on the bottom of the shallow large pot. Arrange the vegetables in the pot.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine garlic, gochugaru, yondu, soy sauce, and plum extract. Thin it out with 1 cup of vegetable stock and pour it over the pot. Pour the rest of the vegetable stock into the pot and cover with a lid.
  3. We usually serve this jeongol (hot pot) to the dinner table and eat while it’s cooking. So if you have a portable gas stove, please do so! It’s so much more fun!
  4. Bring it to boil over medium to medium-high heat and when it starts to simmer then increase heat to high and bring it to hard boil. Keep boiling for 5 minutes or until dumplings are fully cooked and vegetables are softened. It’s ready to eat! Enjoy!
