Mongolian Hot Pots

Tuesday, August 4, 2009

What a day in Beijing! We learned the beautiful art of calligraphy from a local Chinese family, explored the Silk Museum, shopped the promenade, and found a new appreciation for the size of Beijing in the Beijing Urban Planning Center. However, my favorite part of the day was the gourmet Mongolian hot pots we eat in the Hutongs. The hot pots reminded me of meat fondue pots. Colorfully decorated copper pots were placed in front of each guest and a broth was brought to a boil. We were served platefuls of raw lamb, meat, vegetables, and mushrooms. The idea was to immerse your pieces of food into the simmering stock, cook it to your liking, and then dip the food into a delicious sauce. It was a real challenge with chop sticks, but so worth the frustrations! Mr. Harvey was the last man standing and somehow managed to continue eating, even after the entire China crew left the dining room. Great job Mr. Harvey!

Thanks for posting the pictures. They really helped me visualize the pots. Wonder how much a pot like that costs? Karen Wells Arkansas LC
