Thai-Style Hot Pot (Lau Thai)

Hot pot is a simmering pot of broth, set in the middle of the dining table on a portable gas stove. Guests have their choice of assorted uncooked side dishes like fish balls, tofu, thinly sliced beef, mushrooms and noodles. They cook the ingredients into the simmering pot and eat them with a simple Hoisin dipping sauce. As guests continue eating, the broth cooks down and intensifies in flavor. Towards the end of the meal, the savory broth is ladled onto egg or rice noodles. Guests would enjoy their noodle soup to fill up and lap up the remaining broth.
