Chinese Steamboat / Hot Pot 火鍋

Before CNY ends today as "Chap Goh Mei" celebration, let me share with you the steamboat (similar to Japanese shabu-shabu)  that i prepared on Chinese New Year Eve..And I believe many of the Chinese family also like to serve steamboat as Reunion dinner 团圆饭on Chinese New Year Eve. Every family members get together, sit and surround the table, chit-chat and enjoy the steamboat, feel so good!
