Sour Beef Hot Pot with Fresh Herbs

Have some fun when you (virtually) travel to Japan with this riff on a hot pot. Known as nabemono [nah-behMOH-noh], there are endless variations of hot pots. Guests dip meat and veggies into a simmering pot of broth placed in the center of the table. With bold ingredients like anchovies, pineapple, and lemongrass, you’ll craft a flavorful meal in no time. And for ultra-tender steak, thinly slice it, then simply ladle the steaming broth over the top. The heat of the broth is enough to cook it through.
