【Hot Pot Cooking】
Thank you for joining me today! Well, we are already in February which is the coldest month of the year here. And in the cold of winter, a nabe or hot pot is just exceptional. And actually, hot pots are really easy and cheap to put together.
You can pick up a nabe pot for under 500 yen at a 100 yen shop. After that, its up to you what to put in. Meat, fish, vegetables...cut up whatever you'd like, throw it in a soup or broth and boil it up. Easy right?

In Fukuoka City, Motsunabe is a famous hot pot dish. It's made from beef or pork tripe, and rather than going out to a restaurant to eat it, if you get together with family and friends and pool your money together, you can eat this dish without breaking the bank at all! Finally, add some rice or ramen to finish off the soup at the end. It's a delicious and filling way to enjoy every last drop. A hot pot on a cold winter evening is just the thing for a great time at home. In the winter, we do nabe at my house at least once a week. We usually save the leftovers to make zosui, which is like rice porridge, the next morning. I'm a fan of the fire nabe soup which has lots of spices in it but I also like the soup curry base as well!
