Asian Steamboat Directions
  1. 1 inch piece fresh ginger, chopped (about 2 teaspoons) or use the ginger in tube Place broth in saucepan with carrots and onions. Bring to a boil and cook 10 minutes. Meanwhile, remove fat from chicken, and cut into strips about 2 inches by 1 inch. Put chicken in small bowl add sesame oil to it. Cut Beef in 1”x 1” Strips. Cube pork loin in 1 “ cubes. Place each meat and or vegetables on platter large enough to hold all ingredients to be cooked. Wash cabbage and slice on the diagonal in 1-inch pieces. Wash and quarter mushrooms; cut into sixths if large. Place shrimp, cabbage, mushrooms and Chinese noodles on platter and set on the table. Mix sauce ingredients in a soup bowl and pour half into a second soup bowl. Place in front of each diner. To cook: Place heating unit on heatproof mat on table.

Using chopsticks or fork, each diner adds chicken, shrimp, beef, pork, cabbage and mushrooms to the pot, removing them when they are cooked (about one minute). (Note: use separate forks for raw chicken  or meat to eliminate any chance of salmonella contamination.) Remove pieces as they are cooked, dip them in sauce and eat them. When the platter is nearly empty, add noodles and remaining vegetables to pot and cook about five minutes, until noodles are cooked through. Ladle into bowls with remaining dipping sauce and eat as soup. Alternate directions: In a saucepan, bring the broth to a boil and add the carrots and onions. Simmer 10 minutes. Prepare all other ingredients. Add noodles and remaining vegetables to broth. Cook three to four minutes. Add chicken and cook about three minutes. Add the shrimp and cook one minute. Divide the dipping sauce into two large soup bowls and pour the soup over it.
