Japanese Hot Pot Shabu Shabu

Japanese Hot Pot Shabu Shabu

This Japanese idea can turn into a wonderful social event!

Sharing food in this way always makes for a wonderful time relaxing with friends, but I am making this for Friday evening because it is the end of the week, and we all deserve it as we work hard during the week. The first time I tried this lovely Japanese Hot Pot Shabu Shabu With Meat was when we visited my son in Hong Kong, his lovely wife knew how much I love my food, so she booked up this amazing Japanese restaurant – they only do this kind of food.

As soon as we arrived in the building, I could smell the stocks and the spices – the aroma was just out of this world. As we were waiting for our table, the waiters kept walking back with a two tiered trolley full of seafood, vegetables ready sliced, and all kinds of meat, very thinly sliced. Not only was there many choices of meats, but the way they decorated the plates was really amazing.

As we sat at the table, we had a choice of what kind of stock we would like – there were three choices: mild chicken, vegetable, or a seafood stock. They saw us and they thought that’s what we would like. Well…. me being me, and those who know me well know how much I love my spices and heat, so of course I had to order the really spicy stock, then each of us ordered what we wanted from vegetables to dumplings to meat or seafood. I was in heaven! I had my spices and the dumplings as I love them both. It was the best evening I had ever –¬† experiencing eating this lovely¬†Japanese Hot Pot Shabu Shabu With Meat, but as I left I could not feel my lips for quite some time, but I had a lovely evening and I would do it again if I could. Maybe next time I will have a mild one. (laughing to myself…)

Lets see how easy this is:

Recipe Notes

Make sure you add the stock first before you switch on the pot or it will splatter and you may burn yourself.

You can use any kind of vegetables that you like, I prefer these vegetables in the ingredients.

You can also use any seafood or meat you wish but I don't think lamb or goat would work so well.

The centre of the stock is very spicy and it is for seafood, very tasty.

The vegetables should be raw, so that the stock will get even better in flavour.
