1. Put beef in a pan and cover with water. Bring to a boil for 5-10 minutes then drain and rinse in cold water to get rid of scum and blood.

2. Heat some oil in a clean pan. Saute onions and garlic until transparent then add beef and saute for 1-2 minutes.

3. Add water, dashida, fish sauceand simmer until beef is tender over medium to medium low heat.

4. Add corn , cook until tender. Add potatoes and continue to simmer until cooked.

5. Add cabbage the bokchoy and continue to simmer for 3-4 minutes until veggies are done. Do not overcook .

6. Add whole korean chili pepper then salt and pepper to taste.

7. Transfer to a serving dish and serve immediately.

*** dashida is a granulated Korean beef stock. It is optional but for me, it makes the stock a lot richer.
