When I think about Jeonbokjuk, the first thought that comes to my mind is that it’s very precious! Even though I got frozen abalone to make this video recipe, the taste turned out delicious! I am very satisfied with the taste!
You can replace abalone in this recipe with mussels, clams, shrimp, or even ground beef, but abalone porridge is the king of porridge!
When to make this precious porridge?
- For yourself! You’re the most important person in the world!
- For someone you love. They could be your parents, parents-in-law, spouse, girlfriend, boyfriend, or of course your children.
- For someone special in your life who’s recovering from an illness.
Haha! Enjoy the recipe and here’s the details:
Makes 2-3 servings.
2 small size abalones (1 cup worth), 1 cup of rice, 7 cups of water, 2 tbs sesame oil, 1 ts salt, 1tbs fish sauce, 2 cloves of garlic, 2 green onions, ¼ cup of chopped carrot, and 1 sheet of roasted seaweed.
- Wash 1 cup of rice and soak it in cold water for 2 hours. Drain it through a strainer.
