Korean Anchovy Broth
멸치 국물
This fish-based broth is the traditional base for Korean soups and stews. Although meat broth has become more popular in recent years, this anchovy soup stock is still a staple in Korean cooking. It doesn’t have a strong fish odor, but adds a deep and savory element when used in cooking Korean soups and stews.
