Salty Motsu Hot Pot

Salty Motsu Hot Pot

Not sweet! A smart motsu nabe for adults! Very simple as it doesn't even use store-bought dashi!
You get a nice dashi out of it. :)

Ingredients: serves 4

Beef Giblets
400 g
Chinese chives
1 bunch
Super-cheap, store-bought gyoza
1 block
1500 ml
Konbu dashi stock
1 tablespoon granulated
Bonito soup stock
1 tablespoon granulated
Chicken soup stock
1 tablespoon granulated
1 tablespoon
4 tablespoons
1 teaspoon
Black pepper
1 tablespoon
Tempura crumbs
1 tablespoon
White sesame seeds
1 tablespoon


1. Fill a pot with water and heat. Add the bonito soup stock and the chicken soup stock, then just dump in the sugar and sake.
2. Then add the cheap store-bought gyoza. Increase to slightly high heat and boil, using a ladle to crush the gyoza. This will become the soup stock of this hot pot!!
3. Add plenty of black pepper, tempura crumbs, and white sesame seeds.
4. Casually rinse the giblets and add to the pot. Cover with a lid and boil, being mindful to not let it boil over.
5. Cut the cabbage into squares and cut the chives up roughly and add to the pot together with the tofu. Bring to a boil and it's complete.
6. Highly recommended!! Sapporo Ichiban Sesame Ramen Noodles! I highly recommend adding these for finishing up!
7. Also good with shiitake mushrooms and fried tofu.

Story Behind this Recipe

I made this thinking of a motsu hot pot with a clear soup base.

Lately salt is all the rage in Hakata, for hot pots as well as ramen.
