Hotpot is a bit of a generic name for East Asian varieties of stew. The meal usually starts off with a simmering metal pot of broth at the center of a dining table. The pot is at a simmering temperature while participants at the table add ingredients into the pot, cooking the stew freshly at the table. Typically, hot pot dishes will include slices of meat, vegetables, varieties of mushrooms, wontons, dumplings, seafood, and is usually accompanied with different dipping sauces. Hot pot meals are most popular during the winter months when the weather is cold, but you will also see hot pot meals in subtropic areas, such as Hong Kong, Thailand and Vietnam. The origins of the hot pot meal are a bit hard to distinguish, but it likely originated in Mongolia, where cold weather and meat dishes are plentiful. Historical evidence shows that hot pot was spread by the Chinese during the reign of the Tang Dynasty and further spread around Asia after the conquests of Kublai Khan and the Great Yuan Empire, also known as the Mongol Dynasty. Preparing a hot pot meal might not seem like it takes too long since there isn’t actually any cooking being done, but one might be surprised at how long it might take to prepare the food. The broth can consist of soup base with several different spices and starting ingredients. Then when you take into account all of the vegetables that you need to buy, the meat that needs to be bought, sliced and prepared and then the different sauces, the burners and the actual hot pot, there is so much that needs to be done.
