What is a Steamboat?

Jun 7, 2011 | Views: 6,073

Last night, two of my students had a steamboat dinner at their Dharma house, Panchen House. They had a few friends over and prepared a huge variety of raw vegetarian dishes! They posted it on Facebook with pictures… there was so many nutritious ingredients and fresh. I wanted some. So I asked them to organize today at my place. I wanted them to film it so I can blog and share with everyone this incredible wholesome dish that is delicious. You know, they shopped, cleaned, washed, chopped, cooked, filmed, edited and got the video and pictures ready all in half a day. And here it is!

You will see Ethan and Jean Ai are WONDERFUL COOKING INSTRUCTORS AND HOSTS..they have great chemistry together. I enjoyed watching the video…. they were very engaging and professional… Beng Kooi filmed, Jean Mei washed… Justin Ripley stayed up real late to finish editing the film… and Jean Mei also prepared the pictures… Good job team!!

Interesting Background:

Steamboat, or hotpot, is essentially a big pot that is kept at a constant hot temperature. The pot contains a soup stock that is prepared before-hand… Surrounding the pot of soup are plates with a variety of raw ingredients, such as Chinese cabbage, baby corn, seafood, thin slices of meat, tofu etc. (We don’t use meat at all)

The hotpot is most commonly seen within the Chinese culture, although you could also find it in other cultures such as Korean, Thai, Hong Kong and Mongolian. Chinese cuisine is one of the most famous in the world and has a huge variety.

Hot pot cooking was first recognized during the Tang Dynasty in China… almost 1,000 years ago! This method or style of eating is usually done during the winter as the warm soup helps to nourish the body and keeps it warm.

I have added the video below which was done super fast today..thanks. It is hosted by Jean Ai and Ethan and they will explain to you the process of how to host your very own hotpot dinner!

In the video, they will go through with you the ingredients that you will need, the ingredients needed for the soup stock and even how to eat it!! The soup itself was very tasty and light… just the way I like it.

For tonight’s dinner they prepared 2 types of soup stock. One was plain and the other was tom yum-flavoured (tangy and spicy). Usually you would have 2 different types of soup stock… You can tell that meal is all about variety! There is even a dipping sauce after your preferred dish is cooked in the hotpot!

A hotpot dinner is a very interactive meal, very easy to prepare and VERY delicious! Since it is all vegetarian, as you gradually add more ingredients into the pot, the soup slowly becomes more and more nutritious.

You can do this anywhere in the world and you can even customize your meal! After all, some people might like more greens in their meal and some more mock fish balls! hehe

I was eating upstairs in my room when they were downstairs eating here… I thoroughly enjoyed the steamboat very much. Thank you for all the effort everyone and I hope my blog friends can try this at home…

    Thank you for this wonderful sharing of vegetarian steamboat. Coupled with spicy soup or herbal soup and be enhanced by the varieties of sauces, steamboat is a mouthwatering experience and a favourite meal choice to many food connoisseurs.

    Steamboat or hot pot is a Chinese soup containing a variety of Asian foodstuffs and ingredients of mixed vegetables which we could choose . While the hot pot is kept simmering, ingredients are placed into the pot and are cooked at the table. Hot pot is my favourite as it’s a healthy cooking of mixed vegetables of our choice , and a varieties of other food stuffs like deep fried bean curd skin or fu chok, fresh mushrooms and so forth depending whether one is a vegetarian or non vegetarian. There are plenty of soup choices which we can choose and will make every steamboat meal different that suits one tastes. Having hot pot with family and friends is a good way to foster relationship with every one.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing.

    I love steamboat! Lol! it’s very simple and healthy food. Not heaty and oily. And also a very good way to have a gathering with family and friends.Thank you very much for sharing Rinpoche.

  4. Lin Mun on Nov 11, 2016 at 9:55 pm

    Nice yummy vegetarian hot pot. I only tried it once in Cameron Highlands, suits very well especially in a cold weather.

    Vegetarian hot pot is a great and healthy meal. We can basically mix so many types of vegetables, mushrooms, mock meat and etc.

    Also is a good comfort food to enjoy among big groups of family and friends.

  5. Sadi on Feb 21, 2015 at 6:00 pm

    Looks very healthy and all the ingredients are fresh and nourishing for the body. I have never tried hotpot but it looks good.

    This video is great! Very useful tips with clear explanation and video to guide from A-Z. With Chinese New Year around the corner, many Chinese homes will have steamboat for their reunion dinner. I am looking forward to preparing a vegetarian one for the first time this year. Thank you Jean Ai & Ethan.

  8. abby f on Jan 15, 2013 at 12:10 am

    After becoming a vegetarian and started to eat vegetarian hot pot, I found that actually the soup is much tastier and healthier! I love the vege taste and it is sweet and fresh!

    And when it comes to the preparation for vege hot pot, it is much easier and not much time needed. It is clean and without awful smell. I must tell the ‘secret’ behind vege hot pot: IT IS OIL FREE!! Therefore, for people who wish to slim down, vege hot pot is the best choice!

    To me, the best thing is, I can enjoy delicious food without the guilty feeling. No one get pain and no one suffer because of me when I enjoy my delicious hot pot. And being a vegetarian, I’m happier and glad to tell the world: “Please don’t harm animals” as I don’t eat them! Lets be vegetarian to protect the animals and your own health! 🙂

    It’s very healthy dishes, love this.
    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing this. 🙂

  10. Julien Roth on Dec 4, 2012 at 9:45 pm

    Wow, this looks amazing Rinpoche. I would have loved to have this for dinner! And the best part is that it is vegetarian! Which makes it more healthy and yummy. And i am so hungry now after watching the video about how the vegetarian Steamboat. Thank you for sharing Rinpoche.

  11. tfreon on Nov 24, 2012 at 12:15 am

    Steamboat, not only good to eat when feeling sick, no appetite or cold weather, with only vegetable in the soup, the soup will become more tasty, the longer the soup boiling with the vegetables. Some steamboat soup will used herbs to boil so that the soup become more tasty and nutritious.
    Rinpoche’s students e.g: Jean Ai, Ethan, they are very fast in action do performs Rinpoche’s request.
    Thank you for filming the steamboat

  12. edward ooi on Nov 20, 2012 at 2:27 am

    Steamboat doesn’t have to be with meat. In the pictures and videos they didn’t it with eat meat. A lot of people loves to eat steamboat with meat so it tasted better but actually it have no difference if you put the vegetarian meat it taste very good.

  13. tenzin llhamo on Nov 9, 2012 at 2:20 pm

    I LOVE steamboat! Its one of the healthiest and easy to prepare food. Just boil the soup and throw everything in. But there is one thing that is a must have. Its the chilli! Who says vegetarian meals are boring? There are so many types of dishes that we can have in steamboat…We usually have steamboat at home and mum does it so well! Thank you mum!

    Now we are waiting for Kechara Oasis to launch their steamboat! I bet it is going to be super nice!

  14. Lim KH (JB) on Jun 28, 2012 at 5:47 am

    Yummy, yummy… Feel hungry when reading this post. Thanks Rinpoche for sharing and thanks Ethan for teaching us how to prepare a yummy yummy vegetarian steamboat.

    Look at the photos above, all Kecharian are so enjoy the steamboat. It show us that the taste of vege steamboat is better than non vege steamboat. And its very good for our health also.

    每一年的过年,我的家婆都会準备丰盛的年菜来奖赏我们的胃,火锅一定也会是其中一道
    的重点好戏!我喜欢与家人一边吃火锅一边嘻嘻哈哈的气氛,一顿饭的时间可以吃上半天!这两年因为我吃素了,我家婆就準备了更多种类的蔬菜与斋料让我也能享受吃火锅的乐趣,我感谢她对我的细心体贴!!

  16. Han on Jun 20, 2012 at 5:08 pm

    I love steamboat, when I studied in Taiwan, especially like to organize steamboat dinner with housemates or schoolmates in winter time. Cold days accompany with the hotpot plus all the fresh vegetables, dumplings etc…yummy yummy.

  17. Li Kheng on Jun 14, 2011 at 12:51 am

    Wow, the ingredients look really fresh. Steamboat is really common in China and many people love it because it is healthy and engaging.

    It is really great that Rinpoche gave the gang this opportunity to get together and share this experience with other dynamic young adults. The fun video and photos images can be an encouragement for others to follow suit. Although preparing a meal seems like a simple gesture, it symbolizes a deeper significance of bonding, sharing and sense of family, which is uncommon today where it is so convenient to eat out. Additioanlly, the wide and delicious variety of ingredients available reveals that vegetarian cuisine is very exciting and hearty.

  18. Michelle on Jun 9, 2011 at 11:13 pm

    Dear All,

    May i know where did you guys purchase the mock meat items and the charcoal noodles and seaweed noodles? very very interesting items to add in 🙂

    • Jean Ai on Jun 13, 2011 at 12:57 pm

      Hi Michelle, we purchased the mock meat from BMS Organic in SS2 (on the same row as Nasi Kandar Kayu), and the charcoal and seaweed noodles were purchased from Organic Recipe in Bandar Utama 🙂

  19. Jean Mei on Jun 9, 2011 at 12:10 pm

    I looove steamboat!

    There’s something annoying about it though: you can eat steamboat till you’re really, REALLY stuffed – only to find yourself hungry again after 2 hrs and walking back to the table! Haha

    It’s great to have a steamboat going on the dining table whilst you have something else going on (playing on the Play Station or Guitar Hero).

    You can play, then go back and eat again and again 🙂

  20. Indy Wong on Jun 8, 2011 at 2:21 pm

    When was the last time I had steamboat? Probably a year ago.It was hosted by LiLi’s aunt in Old Klang Road. It was very nice,I like to have it again in her house, I always enjoy having dinner at her home,I am always welcomed by LiLi’s aunt, I am very thankful for her hospitality.

  21. Lim Han Nee on Jun 8, 2011 at 1:15 am

    I have always loved steamboats for dinner or lunch, because it allows for people to come together and chitchat endlessly and continuously. The eating and the talking just go on in a steady flow with minimal disruption.

    The food here looks so yummy, with its rich array of vegetables, mushroom and tofu and there are even mock meat dishes thrown in.

    Thank you all for showing us how to enjoy a vegetarian steamboat meal with relish!

  22. patsy on Jun 7, 2011 at 11:07 pm

    It looks so yummy yummy delicious!!! I will try cooking one of these days. It is a norm for the chinese community to have steam boat for reunion dinner during chinese new year and what a good way to cook it this way…. full of veggies with all the “mock meat”

  23. Pilar Golbano on Jun 7, 2011 at 4:29 pm

    Hum….how rich must be all!!

  24. Jace Chong on Jun 7, 2011 at 2:20 pm

    It’s very yummy!!

    I remember a few years ago i went to Penang to visit a friend during Chinese New Year, the tradition there is to have steamboat hotpot from first day of CNY to the 6th day, so they will keep the same soup, so on the last day when i went to his house, the soup was very very delicious as it has the essence of all vege n ingredients of 5days before that. Yumyum…

  25. Shirley Maya Tan on Jun 7, 2011 at 1:07 pm

    What I love about steamboat is that we can modify and add whatever ingredients we like to adjust the steamboat or hot pot according to our preference and taste. It’s healthy and very easy to do. The basic ingredient must be done well. And that is the base soup. Once you’ve got that covered, the rest is easy peasy.

    Steamboats and hot pots are really fun because it brings people together. Like Elena mentioned in the video, many Asians love making steamboat/hotpot during festive and special occasions because everyone gets together and eat. It’s great time to bond and catch up.

    Food is an integral part of Asian way of life, because through food, we bond, we get together and share many stories. Eating is just an excuse for everyone to come together in Asia 🙂

    Thanks for this post and video, Rinpoche. It’s very informative and fun to watch.

  26. Dee Dee Quah on Jun 7, 2011 at 9:04 am

    Looks super yummy!!! ;p

  27. Margaretlee on Jun 7, 2011 at 8:32 am

    Thank you Ethan and Jean Ai for being such great hosts on how to prepare a steam boat dinner. And also to all the back stage crew like Jean Mei, Justin Ripley and Beng Kooi for washing up, filming and editing.

    Like what Cynthia has just commented, there are a great varieties of steamboat now, basically we play along with the choices of the soup base. So you can prepare a herbal soup base if you are health concious freak, or a more spicy and zesty soup base by adding extra handful of chilli oil of your taste. I have never heard of beer steamboat, sure is something to give it a go:-)

    Steam boat dinner is easy to prepare as basically minimum cooking is required except for the soup base, cleaning n cutting the vegetables . All you need to do is to buy lots of vegetables, healthy noodles and mock meat of your choice (for vegetarians)

    It is a great way to have friends over as you bond and share a great time cooking and eating the dinner together. I remember when I was having steamboat at home, one of my cheeky friends would always take out my favourite fish balls (those days I was not vegetarian yet) from the pot and I ended up not able to find what I have put in. So the next few rounds when I invited my friends over, I gave each one a sieve ladel to put their food in, so no more hide and seek game for the food!

    Steamboat is also a very healthy way of eating as you can see there are no deep fried stuff. Just make sure the vegetables are not overcooked in the soup.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this and yes it’s been a long time since my last steamboat dinner, may be tonight I can make one!

  28. Cynthia Lee on Jun 7, 2011 at 5:09 am

    I love steamboat simply because it’s totally healthy and low in fat. Hehe. My favourite is tomyum and the craze these days is hot szechuan “malat” steamboat. It’s super spicy pepper cooked with chinese herbs like dong quai. Traditionally, many Chinese family in Malaysia will have steamboat during Chinese New Year Eve’s reunion dinner where relatives will gather and eat over a long period of time to catch up.

    These days, there are so many variants such as porridge steamboat, miso soup steamboat and I’ve even heard of beer steamboat. Oh, I remembered preparing steamboat once and had friends over for dinner. I bought the soup from some super famous tomyum place and fooled everyone thinking I made it myself from scratch. Haha.

    Trode Khangsar – A 400-year-old Dorje Shugden Chapel in Lhasa

    The Trode Khangsar is an important chapel dedicated to Dorje Shugden in Lhasa, Tibet. It was built by His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama towards the end of the 17th Century. Dorje Shugden is an uncommon Dharma protector within Tibetan Buddhism, who is said to protect the Buddhist teachings in general and Nagarjuna’s Madhyamika (Middle Way) Philosophy as taught by Lama Tsongkhapa specifically.

    Lama Tsongkhapa was the founder of the great Gelug lineage. Dorje Shugden, in his previous incarnation as Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen, was a great scholar, meditator, teacher and contemporary of His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama. After being murdered, Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen arose as Dorje Shugden in order to benefit countless sentient beings.

    If the 5th Dalai Lama can build a chapel for Dorje Shugden and made the first statue of Dorje Shugden, I am sure that this protector is not an average protector to be relied on. Even the high attained master the 5th Dalai Lama will put such attention and important of Dorje Shugden shows that he is not an ordinary protector.

    H.H. Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche’s Sacred Vajra Yogini

    His Holiness Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche was a high attained lama that has pure visions of the Buddhas. One of the Buddhas that he has a direct vision is Buddha Vajrayogini. Vajrayogini appeared to him in the form similar to Naropa’s Vajrayogini but with a small difference. In his vision, Vajrayogini appeared to be looking straight at him. The rest of the body is exactly the same.

    It was said that this is a message from Vajrayogini to Pabongkha Rinpoche that she is empowering Pabongkha Rinpoche into her tantra and spread her tantra to many beings and it would be really beneficial for many beings.

    Kaybje Pabongka Rinpoche has a special affinity to this deity because Vajrayogini once promised him that those who have Vajrayogini initiation, she will bring them to Kechara Paradise in just 14 lifetimes. Those who are specifically in the 4 generations of the disciple of Pabongkha Rinpoche will ascent to Kechara paradise. This is an extra promise from Buddha Vajrayogini to Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche.

    Do you know you can use plants to purify your home and the environment you are living in? There is no need to buy modern devices or use chemicals to do that. These plants not only can add some colours to your home, but they can also protect your health. The best part is, they only need a minimum maintenance.

    Whether we believe or not, there are really some unseen beings. Sometimes people summon the unseen beings to ask for their future or simply out of curiosity. Unseen beings do have some power, some are very harmful. It is not advisable to establish a connection with them because we might be disturbed by them. Have you heard of Ouija Board before? It is something you should keep your distance away.

    Interesting article for our knowledge of these deadly disease. Zika virus disease is caused by a virus transmitted primarily by Aedes mosquitoes, which bite during the day. Most people with Zika virus infection do not develop symptoms. Zika virus infection during pregnancy can cause infants to be born with microcephaly and other congenital . Zika virus transmission has been reported in recent years, the World Health Organisation has declared the mosquito-borne Zika virus a threat internationally. They had done a research that the disease were linked to thousands of birth defects and are spreading rapidly. From Brazil spreading to America , South-east Asia, Cambodia, East Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand in recent years. Its still spreading due to the present of Aedes mosquitoes with tourist travelling abroad. Good sharing as it gives us knowledge of this virus.

    Science has proven that meditation have numerous benefits for everyone. It have shows meditation benefits human’s brains and behaviour. Hence teaching children or those young one in schools can give them a jump start to accessing the many benefits of meditating. And teaching them about meditation early would help them in a sense of security, empathy and inner stability. It helps them to builds compassion, joy, self-esteem and gain self-awareness and become more confident in their studies. In meditation may also help anyone to manage challenging conditions such as stress, depression and so forth. Introducing meditation in schools to can benefit them now and in the long run.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

    ” It is such a pity that because of the Dorje Shugden ban, people like me get distracted from knowing this Dharma master beyond the controversy. It is a great loss that his insightful and generous teachings conveyed in a relatable manner are lost in the fight between pro-Dorje Shugden and pro-Dalai Lama groups.”

    This is a very good summary of why Dorje Shugden ban is a damaging move instead of a beneficial one. First of all, it is banning a beneficial practice that has a good history of 400 years. Many high lamas from various sects can prove to us that this practice is a genuine practice that came from Tushita heaven.

    The most damaging point of the ban is that it will limit the number of people that can make a connection with Dorje Shugden. He is the most suitable protector of our time because of his karma is the closest to us. He is able to lend us help very quickly and effectively. Imagine the thousands and millions of people that lost their chance to make the connection with this great protector because of the ban. That is very sad indeed.

    The body of a Buddha has many signs, in fact, there are 112 physical signs, 32 major signs and 80 minor signs. Buddha’s physical body is the direct results of cultivating virtues for 3 great aeons. Each of the signs and marks has its own meaning and is a representation of the virtue that Buddha had cultivated.

    IThese signs and marks are said to appear only on the body of someone who is exemplary because they denote the inner qualities of that person. Furthermore, it is also a sign that this person or being can leave imprints in the minds of others to achieve those very same qualities.

    When we study and understand the meaning behind these marks, we come to the realisation that they serve as reminders of the qualities that we should practise in our daily lives on our path to spiritual perfection. Not only do the Buddhas teach the Dharma verbally, but even their bodies are used as roadmaps to enlightenment itself.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

Hunting is a horrible \'sport\' because it is not necessary and unfair. Killing animals is vicious and inhuman. Hurting animals does not help us, our karma, our mind and it does not help the animals. Killing animals serves no benefit and it stunts our spiritual growth. Tsem Rinpoche

His Holiness Sharpa Choje Rinpoche Jetsun Lobsang Nyima of Gaden Shartse Monastery. He was a supreme master of both Sutra and Tantra. He served as abbot of both Gaden Shartse Monastery as well as Gyuto Tantric college. After serving as abbot of Gyuto Tantric college he entered into a few long term (3 year, 3 month and 3 day) Vajra Yogini retreats in the forest. He completed that long retreat twice and was going to enter it again till he was asked to be abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery by H.H. the Dalai Lama. He was a great practitioner of Vajra Yogini\'s tantra as well as Dorje Shugden. He was a scholar of the highest renown and he was highly sought after for teachings. He was very devoted to Dorje Shugden throughout his whole life as a pure monk. I was fortunate enough to have him as one of my teachers. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
