Yosenabe (japanese hot pot)

I saw an online comment that Japanese hot pot is like “fine dining for lazy people” and I couldn’t agree more. Yosenabe (寄せ鍋) literally means “putting anything” such as meat, seafood, vegetables and tofu together in a donabe (Japanese earthen clay pot) to cook as a one-dish hot pot meal. When the ingredients are arranged prettily in the clay pot for the first round of serving, it does look so appealing. To me the best part of this dish is that you let your diners do the cooking :p
