Tastes like chicken?

Bosintang. Ever heard of it?

Well, it’s Dog Soup. Big item in Korea. Now, I’m not talking about the North Koreans, living on a starvation diet in Li’l Kim’s workers paradise. No, this is prosperous South Korea. Now get this….

The Seoul city government is seeking to classify man’s best friend as livestock in order to set food safety standards for South Korean lovers of dogmeat, officials say.

Somewhere between two and four million dogs are estimated to be consumed in South Korea every year, but the slaughtering and processing is carried out in dirty environments and poses a risks to diners’ health, they said.

Since dogs are not currently classed as livestock there are no hygiene regulations on their slaughter, officials said.   source

Now that your appetitites are whetted, here’s a nice recipe for bosintang

You will need:
dogmeat-photos.jpg100g of boiled dog meat, 500g of gravy, 20g of green onion, 10g of a leek, 10g of perilla leaves, 100g of taro stalk soaked in water. And, for the sauce, 8g of salt, 2g of mashed garlic, 3g of perilla, 2g of red pepper, 2g of mashed ginger, a little amount of pepper.

After boiling the dog meat with gravy and stalk of taro for some time, boil again after putting vegetables and other ingredients into it. Before eating, sprinkle pepper on it and put into an earthen bowl. The stalk of taro is to be kept in cold water one or two days to get rid of its smell and taste.

Yum, Yum…………Not.

I can’t help it. I think I would have to be near death from starvation before I would eat a dog. Call me closed-minded.

Woof woof.
