What Started it all:
Bacon, Radish, yeast, instant pot

Here's a bloody good Korean-inspired soup that packs a punch with bacon and radish, all done in the Instant Pot. Perfect for a quick yet delicious meal for four people. Let's get cooking!


  • 8 strips of bacon, chopped
  • 2 large radishes, sliced thinly
  • 1 teaspoon yeast
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon gochujang (Korean chili paste)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Prep the Ingredients. Chop the bacon, slice the radishes, and mince the garlic. Chop those green onions too.
  2. Sauté the Bacon. Set your Instant Pot to sauté mode. Toss in the bacon and cook until it's crispy and the fat has rendered out. Keep an eye on it!
  3. Add Garlic and Radish. Add the minced garlic to the pot, and sauté for another minute. Then throw in the sliced radishes. Cook for about 3-4 minutes until they start to soften.
  4. Incorporate the Yeast and Gochujang. Sprinkle the yeast over the mixture and stir well. Add the gochujang for that kick of flavor. Mix it all up!
  5. Pour in the Broth. Pour in the chicken broth and add the soy sauce. Give it a good stir. Season with a bit of salt and pepper.
  6. Pressure Cook. Put the lid on the Instant Pot and set it to high pressure for 10 minutes. Make sure the valve is set to sealing.
  7. Quick Release and Finish. Once the timer goes off, do a quick release of the pressure. Stir in the sesame oil and green onions. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed.

There you have it, a hearty, spicy Korean bacon radish soup that's ready in a flash, thanks to the Instant Pot. Serve it up hot and watch them come back for more. Don't mess it up! Bon appétit!
