If you go to a Korean restaurant such as Samgyetang, it's a menu you definitely want to try.
But what kind of dish is ginseng chicken soup? I know it contains chicken, but...
I think there are many people who say that they only eat it when they go to the store because they can't make it at home.
Today is a story about ginseng chicken soup.
What kind of dish is ginseng chicken soup?
Samgyetang, which is made by simmering a whole chicken, is delicious with the deliciousness of ginseng and the umami of chicken. The name ginseng soup literally means ginseng (ginseng) and chicken (chicken) stewed together.
It seems that ginseng soup was created by adding Korean ginseng to the original dish of stewed chicken.
Ingredients for ginseng soup
As the name suggests, chicken and ginseng are the main ingredients. And glutinous rice is the base of the flavor of ginseng chicken soup. If you add huang gi, jujube, chestnuts, etc. to this, it will be very authentic.
How to make a simple ginseng soup
The way to make Sankeiyu is to stuff a whole chicken with ingredients and boil it for a long time. But you can make it even easier.
When it comes to chicken, you may think that buying and cooking a whole chicken is a bit difficult. In such a case, if you use a part with a good balance of meat and bones, such as chicken wings, you can enjoy the taste of chicken as the broth comes out well from the bones. When it is difficult to remove the bones, such as when eating with children, we recommend boneless parts such as thigh meat. You can also simmer a combination of multiple parts, such as chicken wings and thighs.
After adding chicken, add ginseng and glutinous rice and boil it. …But ginseng isn’t something you always have at home, is it? "Ginseng" chicken soup, so I definitely want to add ginseng.
However, even if I search for "Ginseng", it's all about supplements, and when I try to buy ginseng as an ingredient, it's quite expensive and a little hard to come by. In such a case, you can add garlic, ginger, green onions, etc. instead of ginseng. All of them are ingredients that make you feel good, so you can get well!
