Jeongol is a category of elaborate stews or casseroles in Korean cuisine. Jeongol was originally a dish for upper-class Koreans and members of the royal court. Jeongol usually contains sliced beef and/or seafood, vegetables, mushrooms, and other seasonings, which are boiled with a small amount of broth in a jeongolteul (전골틀, potused for cooking jeongol). They may also include mandu (dumplings). Some of jeongol are spicy containing added gochujang or chili pepper powder, although these ingredients may be omitted. The variety of broth used varies according to the type of jeongol being prepared.
