What is a Steamboat?

Jun 7, 2011 | Views: 6,323

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.

    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.

  15. June Tang (KH-JB) on Jun 25, 2012 at 12:31 am

    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.

    The Buddha Shakyamuni and Bodhisattva Manjushri worked closely to expound the Dharma, although Manjushri himself had achieved enlightenment many lifetimes ago. According to the Avatamsaka Sutra, Manjushri is actually the Buddha Nageshvaraja who achieved enlightenment many eons ago in a different world system. In Shakyamuni’s time however, he took the form of Manjushri, a student of Lord Buddha himself. Indeed, many teachings arose just because Manjushri asked a question to Buddha Shakyamuni.

    Manjushri is the embodiment of wisdom and knowledge, and this Namasanghiti text that recalls his names and qualities represents the pinnacle of all Shakyamuni Buddha’s teachings. Scholars classify it as a tantra of the non-dual (advaya) class, along with the Kalachakra Tantra.

    The Namasanghiti was expounded by Shakyamuni Buddha for his disciple Vajrapani and his wrathful retinue in order to lead them to Buddhahood. The essence of the Namasanghiti text is that Manjushri Bodhisattva is the embodiment of all knowledge. The Namasanghiti is a short text, consisting only of around 160 verses and a prose section, which is a fraction of the vast Sutras such as Avatamsaka Sutra and Prajnaparamita Sutras, or the endless ocean of tantras such as Manjushri-Mula-Kalpa.

    Mekong River is incredibly important for millions of people in China. It flows through many countries: China, Burma, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, and finally Vietnam. But weird and it is shocking to know the dogs cruelty, smuggling and trading just for the meat across Asia, through the famous river, What a cruel business. Need to be aware of visiting all this countries.

    Their faith, determination and patience paid off when their dream of a sanctuary of peace to spread the Buddha’s teachings became a reality.Thank you very much for the interesting article.

    The veneration of relics is an ancient custom that plays an important role in major world religions such as Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, and Shamanism. For example, sites that house holy relics in Christianity are major pilgrimage destinations because it is believed that these relics are a benediction to the living and the deceased.

    In Buddhism, holy relics generally refer to the physical remains or personal effects of Buddha Shakyamuni. Incredibly, some of Buddha Shakyamuni’s bodily remains have survived for two and a half millennia, including the much-revered sacred tooth of the Buddha in Kandy, Sri Lanka.

    Most Buddhist temples have stupas, and these stupas are often created specifically to house precious relics. Such reliquary stupas often become the initial structure around which the whole temple is later based. Today, stupas may also hold the ashes or ringsel (relics in Tibetan) of prominent or respected Buddhist masters.

    Towering imposingly and majestically in the sky, mountains are believed to possess supernatural properties because they are closer to heaven than any other earthly feature. Interestingly, many mountains are linked to spirituality and enlightened beings, such as the Buddha and Jesus.

    From the earliest times, many peoples from the Greeks and Native Americans to the Indians and Polynesians have placed mountains central to their beliefs. The power of such sacred places is believed to enhance the mortal experience and sometimes, it is even forbidden to climb them out of respect.

    The mountain calls to us with its calm and serene environment and is often chosen as the site for religious retreats. Pilgrimages to holy mountains are also a way to connect to the sacred and they allow us to purify our sins through the rigour of an arduous climb. In some religions, adherents are urged to make such a pilgrimage at least once in their lifetime.

    Here is a selection of sacred mountains scattered across the globe. They are revered by people separated by vast spaces but united in their awe and regard for these magnificent giants of nature.

    Labrang Monastery in Xiahe County, northwest China’s Gansu Province, is an annual destination for tourists, Buddhists and pilgrims from around the world. They gather to witness the unveiling of the world’s largest thangka (tapestry) of Buddha, as part of the Grand Monlam Prayer festivities.

    Also called the “Sunning of the Buddha” ritual, at this time, Tibetan monks invite a giant thangka about 100-feet long and 65-feet wide of Buddha Amitabha, up a mountain near Labrang Monastery, which is the largest Tibetan monastery outside of Lhasa.

    It is unveiled at first light on the side of the mountain so that the first rays of the sun illuminate the sacred painting.

    This is not the only story about how Rinpoche helped others. I remember reading an article about Rinpoche buying lottery tickets from a woman in Thailand so she could end her day earlier with the income she needs for the family. Rinpoche always walked the talks, he didn’t just preach but he showed us how to put his teachings in practice. Never be afraid to be kind and nice to others, and when we are kind to others, it should not be with the intention to get something back from them. Be kind and be generous always, this is how we can make our planet a better living space.

    If we want to go on holidays, it is better to go to holy places. Even if such places are not sophisticated, they benefit us spiritually; we can take a break and collect merit, plant Dharma seeds and be blessed. This is a good way of combining the pleasure of holidays with the spirituality of collecting merit.

    Never get tired of collecting merit because it offsets negative karma that leads to suffering. People without Dharma will not know this so for them, a holiday is a holiday. They do not know that their holidays will bring no long-term benefit. With Dharma, we are wiser.

    We should go on pilgrimage to places where holy beings are known to reside or where great practitioners have engaged in profound practices. These places are vortexes of energy – an area where concentrated energy naturally converges on the planet’s surface.

    Mainland Thai culture is heavily influenced by Buddhism. However, unlike most other Buddhist countries of East Asia, Thai Buddhists follow the Theravada school of Buddhism. Thai temples, known as wats, are usually adorned with lavish gold ornaments, and are easily identifiable by their multi-coloured pointed roofs. Pre-Buddhist traditions have been infused with the values of Buddhism, making Thailand a cultural powerhouse.

    According to Buddhist history, the first recorded use of incense occurred during Buddha Shakyamuni’s time, when a woman named Magadha Sangmo offered incense and prayers to request the Buddha to come forth and visit her village. Magadha Sangmo was the daughter of the Buddha main patron, Suddatta. She mirrored her father’s immense faith in Buddha Shakyamuni and was his ardent devotee.

    After marrying and moving to a village where Buddhism was not practised, she wished very much to meet her guru, the Buddha, again. So one day, she climbed to the roof of her in-law’s house, offered incense and sincerely prayed for the Buddha to visit her. Hearing her prayers, Buddha Shakyamuni, together with his entourage, descended from the sky to fulfil her request. It is said that upon meeting the Buddha and hearing his teachings, the entire village became Buddhists. In this way, Magadha Sangmo’s heartfelt request to the Buddha also benefited those around her and succeeding generations.

    Magadha Sangmo recited the following verse while engaged in prayer to the Buddha:

    MA LU SEM CHEN KUN GYI GON GYUR CHING
    DU TE PUNG CHAY MI ZAY JOM DZAY LHA
    NGO NAM MA LU YANG DA KYEN GYUR PAY
    CHOM DEN KOR CHAY NAY DIR SHEG SU SOL

    Protector of all beings without exception,
    Divine subduer of innumerable negative forces,
    Deity, perfect knower of all things,
    Bhagawan and attendants, please come here.

    Malaysia’s rich cultural diversity is reflected in the country’s packed calendar of events and festivals. Most of these celebrations have religious or cultural origins and many are also designated as either state or national holidays.

    Celebrated by everyone in the country, the colourful festivities which observe the ethnic traditions and beliefs of the varied backgrounds of the population are what gives Malaysia the label of “Truly Asia” that it is so well known for.

    The national events and festivals of Malaysia are occasions for family reunions and for joyful community get-togethers. They are world-class examples of how diversity can be inclusive and celebrated.

    Many of these days of observation follow the lunar calendar, thus the dates they fall on vary from year to year.

    Before our globalised world of jet-setting travel, cosmopolitan cities and urban migration, the entire region of the Malay archipelago was, for more than 600 years, an international destination for Arab, Indian and Chinese maritime traders and European explorers who, through the centuries, settled down for trade or for love in these parts, thus creating cosmopolitan communities.

    A true melting pot, Malaysia is one of those rare places in the world where people of different ethnic origins, cultures, traditions and religious beliefs have infused harmoniously to form a distinct multicultural society.

    This country’s rich heritage includes hundreds-of-years-old temples, churches and mosques — some of these located within doors of each other, others having in one place shrines dedicated to deities of different faiths or denominations. All of them have played a key role (and still do!) in shaping the nation by being centres for the community to convene and connect spiritually.

    Thank you for sharing this story with us Pastor Niral. It is a very warm story that fills my heart with joy and warmth. Rinpoche had always taught us to focus out and take care of the people around us and this will bring us great joy. Our little actions will have an unimaginable impact on those people who are in need of warmth.

    If you were in Flatwoods in Braxton Country, West Virginia around September 1952, chances are you would have been caught up in the hype surrounding the first sighting of an unknown creature. Back in 1952, the town of Flatwoods was practically unknown. Hence, the media of the time opted to name the controversial creature ‘the Braxton Country Monster’.

    However, as interest in the creature grew, the media adopted the more geographically-correct name of ‘Flatwoods Monster’. It was also named ‘The Phantom of Flatwoods’ and ‘The Green Monster’.

    The Flatwoods Monster is widely claimed to be some form of extra-terrestrial, primarily because it has been sighted near a large unidentified flying object (UFO).

    In fact, due to the nature of the sighting, many ufologists consider it to be a close encounter of the third kind i.e. a UFO encounter in which at least one animated creature, in the form of humanoid or robot, is the pilot or occupant of the UFO.

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.
~Tsem Rinpoche

    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.

We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
