Nothing Beats Having Steamboat/Hotpot At Home :)

Really, nothing beats having steamboat at home ! Daddy is the first to vouch for it :)  Eat in comfort and can have our favourite meatballs, fishballs, seafood and veggies for home steamboat or hotpot.  Daddy will normally purchase those beef meatballs and stuffed tofu and bitter gourd from the famous shop in Ipoh. And I will sneak in my salmon fillets and mussels and lots of enoki and veggies  :p 

Actually Jo missed home prepared steamboat and she being a slow eater, she prefers to eat in rather than paying for buffet steamboat and not having our favourite beef balls , thus I am going to share with you what we had for our home prepared steamboat for the 3 of us :))) and of course, the wicked Momsie will not let Josh off so easily....I want him to see what he missed for not coming back  !  Let him drool and salivates for those beefballs and stuffed bitter gourd are his favourites :p
Below are some of the stuff we had for our steamboat.  Chinese cabbage, spinach , enoki, sweet corn , meatballs - beef balls with tendons , salmon fillets, dory fillets, NZ mussels , stuffed bitter gourd and tofu  and eggs . We had two type of soup is the beef soup and the other is tom yom soup :)  And of course, I made a bowl of garlic oil...gosh without this, the steamboat would not taste great but with this...mmmmmm you can hear the Piggies oinking away the whole time at the table !

This is my favourite...salmon fillets in hot boiling soup with lots of fried crunchy garlic bits.......this was so good that I almost finished the whole plate of salmon fillets :)  I just pour some of the hot boiling steamboat soup into the raw salmon and I get the most perfect texture ever ! Needless to say, we had the most enjoyable time feeding our stomach to the brim and of course we missed the other Piggy who was up to his neck with assignments. Nevermind, will make up to him when he comes home for Xmas * wink, so , for the time being he can just drool and salivate here  :p


Have a great day !

  8. yup, agree with your title. did u make the yong tou fu stuffings yourself too ?

  9. Can I come over and join you for dinner? I wish I can do this too especially in this cold weather but it is difficult to just prepare it for the 2 of us moreover Carlos is not a fan of steamboat. He said he can't understand why we like to boil our food ha ha..

  10. I also love hot pot at home! My mom used to make it a lot. When I move into a bigger place, I am totally planning on getting one of those electric hot pot thingies :)

  11. Kathy....steamboat at home taste better with the best choice of meatballs and we can have whatever we versatile and safe work slogging over the stove and sink :p should, it brings your family closer and like you say, evryone cooks their own day for us too ! :))

    Tes...yes it is best to have it at home..more comfortable :)

    Claire...haha then you must learn from tuition where to get good stuff for your steamboat and how to make the soup base :p

  12. Your family is so pampered by you. Too bad, Josh couldn't make it home to enjoy all the good food.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you, too! Hope to see you again!

  13. Little is nice to have steamboat even if it is for two person. I do that we just Daddy and myself...too lazy to think what to cook so we just have a simple steamboat and a drink after courting time la :p
