Thai Hot Pot สุกี้ อร่อยง่ายได้ที่บ้าน - Episode 151

Thai Hot Pot

Thai Hot Pot (or Suki) is a Thai version of a classic Asian Hot Pot. It is basically just a hodg-podg of various vegetables and meats that are boiled in a basic broth. While it sounds simple, the flavors that develop in the broth can become pretty complex and delicious as the meal draws out. As the vegetables and meats cook in the broth over time, the broth becomes a very unique soup for everyone to enjoy. The great thing about hot pot is that you don't really need to follow any set rules. You can use your favorite ingredients to ensure that you really get a meal that you will love. No two hot pots need ever be the same when you think about it this way. You can even do vegetarian version if want.

Thai Hot Pot Sauce is a key ingredient to this meal. The better sauce you use, the better everything is. I like to make my own Thai Hot Pot Sauce, which can be found here (Episode 150) in case you want to make your own as well. There are pre-made hot pot dipping sauces that you can buy at your local Asian grocery store, but if you have the time, making your own is always highly recommended. When using the dipping sauce with the Hot Pot, you can do it any way that you like. However, the most common way, and the way I like to do it is to just spoon a little over the top of the bite that I am about to eat, one bite at a time. Joe (The Cameraman) likes to add some broth into his bowl and add a little hot pot dipping sauce to make a spicy soup. Again, no rules, just simple and delicious fun for everyone.

The words "family time" and "dinner table" rarely go together these days. But with this recipe, your entire family will actually spend more time at the dinner table eating and talking then the typical meal. With hot pot in general, each bite is cooked individually, or at least every few bites are cooked in little batches. This is probably one of the most interactive meals that the entire family can enjoy cooking and eating together. One of the reasons I love this meal so much is because it gives everyone a chance to sit down and talk while the food cooks in the hot pot. Before you know it, a couple of hours have went by and everyone is happy and full. If you give this a try, please post a picture, below in the comments section. I would love to see your version of Hot Pot.
