Sichuan Hot Pot

Do you enjoy cooking random animal parts in a bubbling caldron of stock and chili oil laced with Sichuan peppercorns?  If so, then Sichuan hot pot is for you.  Hot pot is a very interactive  way of eating where various meats and vegetables are dropped into the boiling liquid and you fish them out at random.  You then dip your item in a mixture of sesame oil  and black vinegar seasoned with cilantro and msg.  You actually get a choice of msg, plain or chicken flavored (I’m a chicken msg guy myself).  Here’s a list of all the goodies that came with our hot pot: pork belly, pork throat, pork sausage, crispy fried pork, meatballs, duck intestines, duck feet, duck kidneys, beef tripe, baby catfish, black tofu, tofu skin, enoki mushrooms, bean sprouts, potato, winter melon, casava root, lotus root and noodles.
