    1. Dumplings: Put tofu in a cheese cloth and squeeze out as much liquid as you can.
    2. Cook the bean sprouts in boiling for 5 minutes then drain the water and cut 3-4 times. Place on the cheese cloth and squeeze out the liquid. Use same process on the diced fermented Kimchi.
    3. Put the tofu, bean sprouts and kimchi in a medium bowl then add the beef mince, garlic and salt. Mix well to create the stuffing.
    4. Place 1 teaspoon of the stuffing on a dumpling skin then wet the edges and fold in half then wet the ends and connect them to create a crown shape.
    5. Repeat with the remaining skins. Put the dumplings aside until the soup is ready. Cover with a wet paper towel to avoid drying the skin.
    6. Broth: Slice the beef into small pieces then add to the water and cook for 20 minutes on medium high heat. Add garlic, salt and black pepper.
    7. Drop in the reserved dumplings and cook for 10-15 minutes. When the dumplings float they cooked.
    8. Garnish: Separate the egg whites and yolks, whisk and pan fry them thinly with 2-3 drops oil and julienne.

    10. To Serve: Ladle the broth with a couple of dumplings into each serving bowl. Garnish with the prepared egg white, egg yolk, seaweed and sping onions.
