A Tajine-Nabe Hybrid

My favorite winter food in Japan is nabe (hotpot), especially kimchie nabe.  My current favorite kitchen tool is my tajine.  I decided to try a hybrid that saves time.

IngredientsKimchie Nabe Tajine

Three servings

1 block tofu, cut into large pieces

1/2 carrot, sliced

3-4 Chinese cabbage leaves. cut into bite sized squares

10cm of negi, cut diagonally

10cm daikon, sliced

50-100g shaved pork

1 handful bean sprouts

1/4-1/2 cup kimchie nabe sauce (the bottles contain a concentrate, I used it straight)

Directions in picture form:

Step one Place daikon, tofu and stalks of Chinese cabbage into the tajine and microwave for four to six minutes.  My microwave took six minutes to cook the daikon.  I like tofu that has lost a lot of water so I put it in from the start.  If you like more watery tofu, put it in in the next step.

Step twoAdd the rest of the vegetables and meat.  Drizzle the kimchie nabe sauce over top.  Microwave for a further 3-4 minutes.

The final productThis is what you get.  Serve alongside rice or by itself.

    1. I think you would need to add a bit more liquid. Put the meat and daikon in first and simmer until the daikon starts to get tender. Then add the rest of the vegetables and simmer until they are all cooked.
