Total Time: 1 hour 45 mins

Serves: 4


  • 8 cups (2 liter) water
  • 400 gram beef stew cuts
  • 2 tablespoon oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 inch ginger, minced
  • 1 daikon (about 800 gram), peeled, halved, thinly sliced
  • 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Garnish
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 4 stalks cilantro, thinly sliced


  1. Boil together water and beef in a pot. Reduce heat and simmer until beef is cooked and tender, about 1 hour.
  2. [Optional step] Scoop out the beef with slotted spoon, strain the soup to remove impurities and get a clear soup stock. Then return both the strained soup and beef into the pot, and bring to a boil.
  3. Heat oil in a frying pan on a medium heat. Sauté garlic and ginger until fragrant and browned, about 3 minutes. Add this into the soup.
  4. Add thinly sliced daikon, and season with salt, sugar, ground pepper, and ground nutmeg. Cook until daikon is cooked and look transparent. Adjust salt/sugar/pepper as needed.
  5. Turn off heat. Serve the soup hot with garnishes.
