Warming Oyster Hot Pot

Warming Oyster Hot Pot

There's nothing better than hot pot on a cold day, so I tried making a simple oyster hot pot!!

Ingredients: 2 servings

Cooking oysters
1 bag
Tofu (silken)
1 small block
Japanese leek
1
Chinese cabbage leaves
about 3 leaves
Shimeji mushrooms
1/2 pack
Spinach
1/2 bunch
Thin aburaage
1
Water
1000 ml
Kombu
about 10 cm
Sugar
2 tablespoons
Mirin
1 tablespoon
Sake
1 tablespoon
Usukuchi soy sauce
1 tablespoon
Miso
4 heaping tablespoons
Ground sesame seeds
1 heaping tablespoon

Steps

1. Cut the Chinese cabbage, Japanese leek, spinach, tofu, and thin aburaage into bite-sized pieces. Separate the shimeji mushrooms. Thoroughly wash the oysters to get rid of any dirt.
2. Fill a pot with water and add kombu, then add the vegetables, tofu, and thin aburaage, and bring to a boil. As it starts to boil, remove the kombu and simmer for about 3 minutes until the vegetables are tender.
3. Mix the miso, usukuchi soy sauce, mirin, and sugar together. Add to the pot, and after the miso dissolves, add the oysters.
4. Once the oysters have cooked through, turn off the heat, add the ground sesame seeds, and it's complete.
