Sinseollo – A Korean Royal Dish

Sinseollo 신선로
Another dish from the Royal courts of Korea, Sinseollo means Pot or Food of the Mountain Gods.

Traditional Sinseollo is prepared in a special cooking pot that combines a stove and pot in one. The pot looks something like a bundt pan, but the hole in the center has a bottom and hot coals or stones are placed in the hole to heat the dish. Later variations were adapted for gas burners or sterno like containers.
