We tend to eat Shabu Shabu at home often! Especially on a cold day. The best part about ShabuShabu at home is that you can dig into the fridge and put whatever you want. It’s a good way to get rid of vegetables thats been sitting in the fridge.
Overview of the ingredients. I personally like to eat the vegetables over the meat. We also have scallops and tofu that we’re going to add along with the meat.
We have beansprouts, zucchini, onion, mushroom, spinach, cabbage…so on!
High quality meat makes all the difference!
For the broth, we have the basic Korean broth (kelp, anchovies, radish boiled together). To this, we added some clams! These are Manila clams, I believe.
We usually can’t wait so once there is a rolling boil, we add all the vegetables!
For sauce, I usually have an Asian Chili sauce that I buy. My mom prefers this sesame seed sauce. Sometimes I like to mix soy sauce with a bit of lemon (bootleg Ponzu sauce).
