  10. add clams in the last 5 mins, make sure they open before serve
  11. done

⭐️ go easy on the chilli powder and soy bean paste as you start, you can always taste the soup after the beef is cooked and add more soy bean paste / chilli 

⭐️ if u bought live clams and plan to cook another day, cook the clams in a pot till they open without any oil or seasoning and keep the clam juice and keep in the fridge. 

 ⭐️ u don’t need to break the tofu as u boil the soup, it will break nicely at the end when u stir.  breaking tofu too soon will make it too crumbly.

⭐️ if ur concerned about raw eggs, just skip it entirely. 

⭐️ I actually used 1 zucchini and 1 Asian hairy melon here. but it really doesn’t matter and you can just substitute using zucchini.
