    For serving


    1. 1
      Wash the rice in a colander until the water runs clear; soak rice in water to cover for 30 minutes.
    2. 2
      Heat the oil in a slow cooker set on HIGH.
    3. 3
      Drain, rinse, and drain the rice one last time.
    4. 4
      Add the rice to the hot oil and cook, stirring, until the rice is well coated with oil and smells toasty (about 5 minutes).
    5. 5
      Add in the stock all at once, then the salt and cilantro stems.
    6. 6
      Stir well, cover, turn cooker temperature to LOW, and cook 8-9 hours or overnight.
    7. 7
      To finish the jook, stir it well because the liquid and rice may have separated.
    8. 8
      If you want your jook thicker, turn the cooker on HIGH, cover and cook for 1 to 1 1/2 hours more, stirring occasionally.
    9. 9
      The soup will become thick and white; add the soy milk now, if desired, for an ultra-creamy consistency.
    10. 10
      To serve, set out small bowls of chopped cilantro leaves and minced green onion with a choice of oyster sauce, soy sauce, and hot sauce.

      Yum! This is really good and very easy. I chose this recipe because it was one of the few things that I had all of the ingredients for. It tastes a lot like egg drop soup to me which I love. It is very versatile. You can add pretty much anything to it depending on what you want: corn, soy sauce, milk, onions, etc. Oh and I did not add the cilantro. I will absolutely make this again.
