Momguk was traditionally a soup made when a whole pig was butchered for an important family event. Whether the event was happy or sad, this hearty soup helped everyone come together.
The soup’s base is made from boiled pig with gulfweed, cabbage, radish and radish leaves later added to the simmering broth. The standard term for gulfweed in Korean is mojaban but in the Jeju language, it is called ‘mom’ which in turn is where the soup got its name.
