Chinese Hot Pot

One of my favorite dinners, Chinese Hot Pot is a well-rounded meal shared by family and friends. Surrounding an electric pot filled with delicious stock of your choosing are your ingredients: fresh vegetables, thinly sliced meats, quail eggs, and whatever else you can imagine. It is an interactive and fun experience everyone should enjoy.

Recipe Notes

The sauce I make for dipping consists of soy sauce, white vinegar, minced garlic and ginger, Thai bird chili, sesame oil, and sometimes a raw egg. It is all about your personal preference, so add ingredients as you go to see what you like most.

    They are my favorites. 🙂 I lucked out and my grocery store essentially has a hot pot pack of mushrooms.
