    Hari-Hari Hot Pot

    *This program was first broadcast on Dec. 22, 2017

    Our theme this time is hot pots.Chef Saito will be making hari-hari hot pot, a delicious favorite perfect for cold winter days. Thinly sliced daikon radish, mizuna potherb mustard greens, and pork are briefly dipped in a rich dashi soup to cook them. With Chef Saito's techniques, it's a delicious hot pot that you can make even without a lot of ingredients. After those ingredients have all been eaten, we'll be adding thin inaniwa udon noodles to help pick up the soup for a delicious finish to the meal — these noodles go great with hot pots! And for dessert, we'll be having persimmon topped with a homemade sesame sauce.
