How does hot pot work?The cooking pot is generally placed sunken in the middle of the table. The pot is fueled by a portable butane gas stove. Majority of the ingredients are uncooked: meat, vegetables and seafood. Noodle is an excellent item for the last since the noodle can absorb all the ingredients flavor that you have already put into the pot. In fact, most people will drink the broth at the end as the broth becomes a tasty and nutritional soup.
When you are ready to cook, put the portion and the ingredient you want into the pot. The purpose of hot pot is to enjoy the cooking process and your company at the same time. So, cook the ones you want and cook some more when you are ready to eat more, while you are having a good conversation with your company. However, some like to put an entire dish ingredient into the pot, so once the ingredients are done cooking, you can just keep eating while they are hot.
When the ingredients are cooked, please use the dipping sauce to enhance the ingredients' natural flavor.
The best part of hot pot style is that you can individualize your way of cooking and tastes.
Now, let’s get started.
A word of cautionSince the meat is uncooked, when you put the meat into the pot, please make sure you keep the chopsticks in the broiling broth for a few seconds to kill any microbes before picking up other cooked foods to eat.
If eating with young children, please make sure the children will not touch the cooking pot.
