Regarding miso, yes, it is usually mixed in right before serving instead of cooking it, but that is Japanese miso.  There is a Korean version of fermented soybean paste (I can't remember the name for it, though) that can withstand heat.  If you can find it (it comes in a rectangularish brown container), use that.

This is a very hearty stew, but very delicious.  I usually make a batch and me and my fiance are eating it for days.  xD


oh and btw this recipe sounds yummy!


not trying to be a pain in the ass, but you're not supposed to boil miso as it destroys its flavor and kills its enzymes and beneficial probiotics.  so maybe add miso after boiling the other liquids and turning the heat down.
