Ingredients

1 quart beef stock
4 dried shiitake mushrooms
2 pieces dried black fungus (opt.)
4-6 dried red chilis

Directions

1) Add dried mushrooms, crushed garlic cloves, sliced ginger, and dried chilis to the broth in a medium pot and bring to a simmer. Let simmer for at least 10 minutes to infuse flavors.
