Yeonpo-tang (연포탕; 軟泡湯) or yeonpo-guk (연폿국) is a Korean soup made with beef, radish, tofu, and kelp stock.[1]

In South Jeolla Province, a different soup called yeonpo-tang is made with long arm octopus.[2] The local specialty, octopus soup, may also be called nakji-yeonpo-tang (낙지연포탕; "octopus yeonpo-tang") outside the province.[3]

Preparation

Nakji-yeonpo-tang can be prepared by boiling long arm octopus in kelp stock, taking the octopus out, slicing them into bite-sized pieces and putting them back into the soup.[3] The soup is usually seasoned with salt, minced garlic, sliced tree onions, sesame oil, and ground toasted sesame seeds, and is boiled together with the slices of octopus.[3]
