    mlao77's Note:

    I grew up eating a Filipino version of Congee called "Arroz Caldo". My grandmother would have lots of dark chicken meat in it and huge chunks of ginger that I would end up biting into (not fun when you're 7 years old). Since then my own kids have developed a love for the traditional Chinese-style congee (also called rice soup) they serve in restaurants, especially during cold Autumn and Winter days. Some people may be uneasy about using the 'century duck egg' (or 'thousand year old egg' is really just as egg that is preserved in salt, ash and lime) but don't judge it in it's unpeeled, chopped up state - added to the congee, it really adds a yummy complexity to this dish, even my 2yo daughter loves it. This recipe is for you if you want a warm, hearty, simple and economical meal. Enjoy! (note: I use leftover shredded chicken or pork but you can poach your own prior to making recipe, and use the ground white pepper - it really makes a difference!)

      Who couldn't like Congee? If you have never one to a Koren restaurant for Sushi Donbouri (?) or Congee, you better go!
      This is probably the easiest recipe that I have come across, thank goodness. It tastes great! I do not eat red meat but substitutions do wonders. Thank you!
