Yosenabe is a Japanese hot pot dish made with dashi, vegetables, tofu, seafood, and noodles in a nabe, which is a Japanese pot. When the pot is made out of clay, it’s referred to as Donabe, when the pot is made out of cast iron, it’s referred to Tetsunabe (Tetsu = Iron, as in Tetsuo, the Iron Man). There are other types of Nabe dishes in Japanese cooking, but the Yosenabe is one of the most popular and ubiquitous ones. The dish is very easy to make, but time consuming in the preparation of the various type of ingredients in the Nabe. There is no set list of what ingredients you should put in a yosenabe, which makes the dish is very adaptable to your own taste.
