Mongolian Hot Pot
What it is and what it does!
Called a Mongolian or Chinese Hot Pot,Firepot, Fire Pot, or Chinese Fondue Pot,it is a large communal cooking and serving pot and the forerunner of ourmodern meat fondue pots.
The traditional use of the Mongolian Fire Pot is for making a soup broth, inwhich thinly sliced, bite size pieces of lamb or beef are cooked. The compartment under the chimney (tube) was originally for charcoal, to heatthe ingredients very quickly.
Use it for meat and vegetable fondues. Or for cheese or chocolate anddessert fondues, if you are careful not to scald the ingredients.
This type of pot is still popular in Asiancountries, but now it is made of aluminum or stainless steel, and usesa gas or electric source of heat. Still,brass makes the best fire pot,because of its wonderful ability to diffuse heat and conduct it quicklyand easily throughout its surface. This cooks food more evenly, with alower heat source than might normally be used with another pan, and preventshot spots and sticking.
