My family loves steamboat and we usually have this like twice a month. Sometimes I would make the steamboat soup by boiling pork bones. That makes the soup very sweet and tasty. Recently I have been buying the Hai Di Lao Hot Pot Seasoning from the morning market near my area to make the soup base.
Recommended by the seller to try this Shrimp Soup Hot Pot Seasoning. It has a sourish flavour which is very appetizing.
Just boil a pot of water and add in the Hai Di Lao Hot Pot Seasoning once the water is boiled. For our steamboat ingredients, we have cabbage, meat balls, tofu, enoki, beancurd, sausages and meat slices. It is best to have during the rainy nights.
The Hai Di Lao Soup Base comes in many flavors such as spicy, clear broth, mushroom, tomatoes and many more. Give it a try if you like steamboat because it is so convenient to cook.
