Slow Cooker Braised Korea Gingseng with Scallop and Chicken in Soup

Before we left for our Korea trip,my mom make us Chinese style Korea Gingseng Chicken soup which is very different from Korea Chicken Gingseng Soup "samyetang" we ate in Seoul. Honestly I still prefer Chinese style Korean Gingseng Soup than "Samyetang".I think Chinese style Korean Gingseng have better taste and flavor ..Maybe it's taste better because my mom added in some pork ribs ,dried scallop,"yoke chok"(Solomon's Seal) and kei qi (wolfberries) to make the soup taste sweeter.Korea Gingseng is(Panax schinsen) is a type of ginseng native to Asia. Korean ginseng is known as a tonic, and has been known to treat diabetes mellitus and help develop human brain efficiency .If you really care about your health and affordable,it's good to consume Korea Gingseng once a month..Cooking Korea Gingseng in slow cooker is no brainier! It's as easy as ABC!! Just wash and dump everything into the slow cooker and turn on the switch high until boiling and then voila!!! Eat!

I kampung chicken or free range chicken,clean and cut into 4 pieces,blanched
2 strip pork ribs,cut small,blanched
6 pieces dried scallop,washed
2 tbsp kei qi (wolfberries) washed
4-5 pieces tong sam (Codonopsis Pilosula) washed
50 gm yoke chok (Solomon's Seal)washed
I large 2 year old Korea gingseng,cut 1/2
salt to taste
2 liter water or more

1:Wash all the herbs ,set aside.Clean and cut whole chicken and pork ribs then blanched with hot water.
2:Toss all the ingredients in the slow cooker with water at high heat.When it's boiling reduced heat to medium.Add in salt to taste.
3:Serve warm.

I also like to "throw" everything into the slow cooker for herbal soups! so easy and delicious! I agree, yours sound much more flavourful than the korean version!
