How To Prepare

  1. Let’s start by preparing the ingredients for your nabe hot pot by cutting the tofu and vegetables into bitesize pieces. The harusame noodles can be cooked directly in the hot pot so simply need to be rinsed in water for preparation.

  2. Mix 800ml of water with 2 teaspoons of kimuchi sauce base and 150ml of tsuyu then add to a large pot to boil.

  3. Once the soup base has boiled, you can start adding your meat and seafood first to ensure that they cook thoroughly. Then start adding any other ingredients and allow them all to simmer in the soup base to soak up the flavours. Keep adding more ingredients and top up the soup base with a little extra water when you need to.

  4. A nabe hot pot can last for a few hours of good eating. It is also common to add some udon noodles or rice at the end to soak up the last remaining flavours.

Tips and Information

- If you want to cook your kimuchi nabe in a truly authentic way, use a gas stove at the centre of the table and make it a social event by cooking together with your friends!
- You can also use our premade kimuchi nabe sauce. Simply simmer your chosen ingredients in a mix of 300ml of kimchi sauce and 600ml of water.
- Not spicy enough for you? Try adding a teaspoon each of gochujang spicy Korean paste and miso paste. Of course, add as much as you like, but be careful, Korean food is much more spicy than Japanese food!
