Until not long ago, ‘seolleongtang’ was an easy-to-eat dish at large and small restaurants. These days, it has become a dish that is hard to taste even in popular restaurants. This may be because not many customers are looking for Seolleongtang, but there are more restaurants that have been removed from the menu. Now, to eat ‘seolleongtang,’ one can afford to visit an original restaurant that specializes in ‘seolleongtang.’ Seolleongtang is a soup made by boiling beef heads, intestines, bones, feet, and crucible. First, pour enough water into a large pot and boil it before putting in the bones. When bubbles rise, remove them often and add ginger, green onions, garlic, etc. to keep the pleasant smell away. Then, put the flesh and intestines in a boiling soup, boil it until the soup turns white, then remove the bones, cut the flesh and intestines into bite-sized pieces, and put them back in. Boil the meat until it is torn apart by hand, then put the soup in a earthen pot and mix it with rice.

But these are only typical private etymology. It is widely believed that the origin of “seolleongtang” lies in “seonnong.” There seems to be no doubt that it is accompanied by the following historical facts. Moreover, the school has been teaching like that for a long time.

At that time, the king, who participated in the memorial service, personally plowed fields and planted rice paddies with various officials. When holding a memorial service for Seonnongdan, the whole of the cattle and pigs were caught and put on the table. After the memorial service, 먹튀사이트 the cow boiled the soup and the pig boiled. Many people who participated in the event had to eat all at once, so they had no choice but to cook soup in a large pot and eat rice. At that time, the soup that was boiled after catching a cow was called Seonnongtang, or Seonnongtang, as the soup that was eaten in Seonnongdan. This changed and became the current ‘seolleongtang’.
