Seolleongtang – Food for the Multitude

Seolleongtang is based on a broth made form bull's head, legs, bones, and bowels which are stewed in water for a long time in a large steel pan.

The histories of ancient Joseon record the tradition of Seolleongtang making as originating from King Sejong, the 4th King of th Joseon Age(A.D.1392-1910).    The king made Seolleongtang with used sacrifices and ate it to keep away hunger because he had bcome isolated due to strong storms when he was on a prayer feast for an abundant harvest. Of cause from ancient times Sollontang has been a very popular soup in Korea.

Seolleongtang is heated for over a day and cooked    overnight until the soup¡¯s color becomes like milk. To complete the cooking salt is added, as well as chopped shallots, the sauce of chili peppers, and soy sauce.    Rice and radish kimchi are most commonly served with Seolleongtang. The most striking thing about Sollontang is that the warm and spicy taste causes the relaxation of the body after eating.
