Korean Dumpling Soup Sujebi 수제비


As most (not all) distinguished gentlemen of a certain age, daddy likes what he likes.  He bites into raw onions like apples and grins as he dips his extra large dried anchovies into gochujang (Korean red pepper paste).  His favorite foods include maeuntang, oreos, fig newtons, anything with fish, and this sujebi.  I used to sit and watch him tear dough to float into simmering broth to make these dumplings and never understood what the appeal of that was.  Mama told us that it was a meal that daddy used to have a lot with his family because they were so poor.  Flour was inexpensive, water was free, and all sorts of scraps could be tossed in.  I think that last point is where daddy gets his habit of pairing things that just do not go together from but, I love daddy with all my heart and since it’s father’s day on Sunday and I won’t be here, I wanted to make this just for him. Happy father’s day, daddy.  I love you with my entire heart (craziness and all)!

So, if you’ve got some random bits lying around and some flour, why not give this a try?

Sujebi, Korean Dumpling Soup 수제비
Prep time

Cook time

Total time



  • 2 c Flour
  • 1 ts Sugar
  • ½ ts Salt
  • 1 tb Oil
  • ½ c Water
  • 8 c Water
  • ¼ c Dried Anchovies
  • 2 pieces of Kelp
  • 2 tb Fish Sauce
  • 5-6 cloves of Garlic
  • 1 Medium Onion
  • ½ c Carrots
  • ½ c Potatoes
  • ½ c Zucchini
  • Chopped Kimchi
  • Shrimp
  • Mussels
  • Eggs

  1. Begin by heating up your water with your anchovies and kelp.
  2. Simultaneously, work on your dough. Sift together all your dry dumpling ingredients and slowly add in your oil and water. Mix to combine and finish off by kneading with your hands. You want to produce a smooth dough ball. Cover with plastic and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
  3. When your water has boiled for about 20 minutes, extract the fish and kelp.
  4. Add your veggies and fish sauce to the pot, keep in mind your potatoes will take the longest and the starch will help thicken the soup.
  5. After your dough has chilled, smooth it out with both thumbs and begin breaking off bite size pieces. They are done when they begin to float to the surface (but double check by testing one).
  6. Salt and pepper to taste and serve with kimchi.

I will be back from Florida on Sunday.

Love & dumplings,

Your Squishy Monster ^.^

    A fantastic video, this does look very nice, a great post for Father’s Day.
    Our Father’s Day here in Oz isn’t until September, it’s strange how this day is different around the world.

  • Lester says:

    Thank you Angie.Have a greqt week end.


  • Charles says:

    Biting raw onions? I’m not sure about that for me, but I’m on board with the idea of this soup. Looks like a fun dish to try some time. Pretty nutritious with the tasty veg and best of all quite simple too. Nice one – thanks for sharing

    Loved your little out-take at the end of your vid :D

  • Honey What's Cooking says:

    the only thing i’ve had in korean food is kimchi enchiladas, it’s delicious. i still have to try korean bbq, i heard it’s amazing. this soup looks delish!

  • Jon says:

    A very hearty comforting soup!! It looks amazing Angie!! This is another one I am going to make soon….enjoy your trip!

  • Yeasol says:

    Oh my goodness, I haven’t made sujebi in forever! Thanks for the reminder ;)
    You were a librarian?! That’s so cool, I love libraries and I’ve never tried white flesh nectarines but they sound delish. The korean deli where I bought them from just said “white peaches” so I’m not sure exactly what type they are. ha so descriptive.

  • The Squishy Monster says:

    I worked at our school library and I rarely got visitors…it was pretty sad :( I can totally appreciate that…my favorite Asian Pastry insists on claiming that the only ingredients in it are “flour, sugar, eggs, milk.” lol

  • The Squishy Monster says:

    thanks Jon!! Always makes me smile to hear from ya =D

  • The Squishy Monster says:

    I’ve had those and they’re yummy! I still remember my first experience with cheese and Korean food with the army base soup and was weirded out by it (that was quickly changed)

  • The Squishy Monster says:

    I know, right? thank YOU for stopping by, Charles!!

  • The Squishy Monster says:

    you too, Les!!!

  • The Squishy Monster says:

    we love anchovies in my house…thanks Angie!

  • The Squishy Monster says:

    thanks, beautiful!!

  • The Squishy Monster says:

    thanks, Joanne! I hope you enjoyed your weekend =D

  • Nomadic Samuel Jeffery says:

    I find sujebi to be one of the more under-rated Korean foods. While living in Korea I had a difficult time finding restaurants that served this great dish.

  • The Squishy Monster says:

    Really? I had no idea. Last time I went, the hamburgers were less than desirable but everything else was freeeeaking amazing! I will have to ask my emo about the sujebi situation =D
