Chinese Hot Pot
火锅

Getting together around this dish is a memorable moment

The Chinese are fond of hot pots, these recipes are the pinnacle of convivial dishes: the guests will spend an hour (or more) around a pot of broth in which they cook all kinds of ingredients. They will dip them in a delicious sauce, and finish by enjoying the broth which has taken on an intense taste. There are different types of Chinese hot pot: Pekingese, Szechuanese, Cantonese, Mongolian ... Offal hot pot are the most popular.
I propose you my version of a hot pot with two broths, one soft and clear, the other rich in spices. The broth should be prepared ahead of time. You can make the spice sauce in advance, I like to make a good amount of it and freeze it in small portions. You can also cut the ingredients and prepare the dipping sauce the day before. On the D-Day, you just have to set the table.
In the video I show you a fairly complete recipe. You can of course make a simplified Chinese hot pot: clear broth, omelet, some vegetables and noodles, a little sauce to dip the cooked ingredients is essential. In addition, Chinese hot pot is very digestible and not fatty. Everyone will love this dish, children first. Bon appétit.
