Prep the soup ingredients
- Peel and coarsely chop enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
- Coarsely chop the kimchi.
- Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions on the diagonal, keeping the white and green parts separate. Set aside the green parts for garnish.
- Pat the pork dry with a paper towel; season with salt and pepper. Cut the pork crosswise into 1-inch-wide strips.
Cook the soup
Add 3 cups [5 cups] water and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the pork is almost tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Add the rice cakes and cabbage, cover, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the rice cakes are soft, the pork is cooked through, and the cabbage is tender, 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the tamari.
While the soup cooks, prepare the egg.
Cook the egg
- Crack the egg into a small bowl and season with salt and pepper. Using a whisk or fork, lightly beat until just blended.
