This is one of the preparations of the Winter Hot Pot Series at Ramen-San in Chicago. The meals are made for two people and available for carryout, with all of the vegetables, sauces, proteins and broth, plus instructions, to enjoy a hot-pot meal at home. Customers can even add a hot pot and long spoons to your order if they like.
Partner Amarit Dulyapaibul said the hot pots are intended bring global flavors to guests at this time when they are unable to travel.
This Korean-inspired preparation was made with thinly sliced beef sirloin, a vegetable medley, three dipping sauces (seasoned sesame oil and mild and spicy bulgogi sauces redolent of garlic ang ginger), and a Korean variant on the Japanese broth dashi. It also came with Korean side dishes, or banchan, including cabbage kimchi, cucumber kimchi, spicy bean sprouts, kale-scallion salad and marinated tofu.
