Easy Salt Broth Chanko Hot Pot with Weipa

I made a hot pot with Weipa. You don't need to buy hot pot seasonings. With just Weipa, you can make your own hot pot quickly with seasonings you have at home.

Weipa gives a good accent to this hot pot. Adjust the amount to your taste.This recipe might be too sweet. We love bean noodles so much that we fight over it. It is nice if you toss in some aburaage. It is easy to use tubed garlic or ginger. Ginger will warm up your body. For 2 servings. Recipe by orange_peko


2 servings
  1. 1000 ml Water
  2. 1 to 2 tablespoons Weipa
  3. 80 to 100 ml Cooking sake
  4. 80 ml Mirin
  5. 1 tbsp ~ Soy sauce
  6. 1 to 2 tablespoons Ground sesame seeds
  7. 1 tsp Sesame oil
  8. 1 to 3 teaspoons Grated garlic
  9. 1 small knob the size of your thumb Ginger
  10. 1 tsp Dashi stock powder
  11. 1 packet Chicken meatballs
  12. 1/4 packet Bean noodles
  13. 1/8 Chinese cabbage
  14. 1 Chrysanthemum greens, white part of Japanese leek
  15. 1 dash Salt


    1. Combine water, sake, dashi, mirin, and soy sauce in an earthenware pot and bring to a boil. Check the seasoning and add ground sesame seeds, sesame oil, grated garlic, and ginger.

    2. Add the thick stems of Chinese cabbage, chicken meatballs, and bean noodles first because they take more time to cook through. Simmer. Add the other ingredients. Check the seasoning and add salt if needed.

    3. I put wiener sausages, the white part of Japanese leek, shimeji mushrooms, and other things in this pot. (Add Weipa during Step 1.)

    4. This is with chrysanthemum greens and ground sesame seeds.

    5. I changed the top photo on Jan 21st. This photo has chicken meatballs, spinach, bean noodles, garlic, and the white part of Japanese leek.

    6. This is the first hot pot of this year. With cabbage, bean noodles, shimeji mushrooms, baby scallops, komatsuna greens, garlic, wiener sausage, chikuwa, and chicken meatballs (with tofu).

    7. You don't need to strictly follow the ingredients list. Add in whatever you like. If you want it less sweet, add less mirin. If you prefer, add a lot of garlic and ginger. Use the leftover soup the next morning.

      I used chicken meatballs, wiener sausage, bean noodles, aburaage, shitake mushrooms, enoki mushrooms, garlic chives, cabbage, and garlic.
    9. I used beef offals, pork belly, chicken meatballs, spinach, bean noodles, giant oyster mushrooms, shitake mushrooms, aburaage, and garlic.

    10. I changed the amount of sake and mirin from 100 ml to 80 ml or more. Adjust to taste.

    11. I combined store-bought gyoza, bean noodles, wiener sausages, komatsuna greens, shitake mushrooms, garlic, and chikuwa. I sweated a lot while eating this!
