Jeonbok-juk [Rice Porridge with Rice]

A Jewel from the Ocean  ‘Jeonbok-juk’ (Rice Porridge with Rice)

The Chinese emperor Qun Shi Huang, who desired eternal life, is known to have consumed abalone as an elixir. Abalone was precious in old Korea and was always one of the tribute goods offered to the King.

Nowadays, farmed abalones are more readily available. And Jeonbok-juk is still the first thing people will make when a family member falls sick.
