Miso Flavored Layered Hotpot

This hotpot is layered with kimchi, miso, and cheese!
It's the most popular hotpot among my family.
Finish it off with ramen!

Ingredients: 5 servings

Thinly sliced pork belly
750 g
Chinese cabbage
1/2
Bean sprouts
1 bag
Melting type cheese
200 g
Kimchi
200 g
Kombu dashi (for the hotpot and the ramen)
600 ml
Chinese noodles (for the ramen)
5 servings
Miso Sauce:
Miso
100 g
Mirin
2 tablespoons
Sake
2 tablespoons
Sugar
1 teaspoon

Steps

1. Rub the pork well with the kimchi. Combine the ingredients for the miso sauce.
2. Spread out the pork into a shallow metal tray. Leave for 10 minutes to allow the flavor to blend into the meat. Finely chop the kimchi.
3. Place the bean sprouts in the bottom of the hotpot. Rinse the Chinese cabbage and layer with the meat. Form about 5-6 layers and then slice into 5 cm pieces. Place into the hotpot.
4. Pour in 300 ml of konbu dashi. Place the chopped kimchi and half of the miso sauce on top of the Chinese cabbage. Cover with a lid and turn on the heat.
5. Once everything has been cooked about 70%, add the rest of the miso sauce.
6. When everything has pretty much cooked through, sprinkle the top with lots of cheese and let it simmer.
7. After 2-3 minutes and after the cheese has melted, it's done.
8. Finish it up with ramen! Add 300 ml of konbu dashi and the boiled Chinese noodles. Let it simmer for a while. Taste it and add miso to adjust the flavor.
