I TRIED HOW MUCH IS THE COST IF I MAKE NABE IN THE US & TRADITIONAL YOSENABE RECIPE

Food & Recipes

Japanese hot pot called ‘NABE”. “NABEMONO” is the staple winter comfort food in Japan. It’s very popular, we’re talking about the simple NABE hot pot today although NABE dishes are generally categorized into three types: YOSENABE hotpots, MIZUTAKI hotpots, and sukiyaki hotpots.

YOSENABE is a dish to enjoy the food with meat (commonly pork or chicken) or seafood ( such as cod, salmon, shrimp, oysters, crab meat, and scallops) simmered in dashi broth made of dashi kelp or bonito flakes.

The hot pot is placed in the center of a table and serves yourself and enjoy the food with a sauce called “tare” or with the sauce in the pot.

Typical vegetables include Chinese cabbage, green onions, garland chrysanthemums, carrots, burdock, and mizuna. Tofu and mushrooms are also essential.

Soak the dashi kelp and dried shiitake mushroom in water and store it in a fridge overnight.

TARE SAUCE

Since the nabe soup made of dashi is so simple, we use a dipping sauce called “TARE”.

Japanese ponzu sauce is typically used for the Japanese hot pot dish, and GOMADARE (thick sesame paste dressing) is also popular because GOMADARE goes well with especially pork.
